Summary

George Whitefield was called the Grand Itinerant for his unprecedented preaching ministry. He crossed the Atlantic Ocean numerous times and lit fires of revival on two continents. Yet as Dr. Lawson illustrates in this latest entry in the Long Line of Godly Men Profiles series, we must note that Whitefield was a man whose extraordinary evangelistic fervor was marked by remarkable piety and deep theology and whose unswerving devotion to his God led him to risk all that he had to preach the name of Christ.

Not quite what I had Aexpected, but not bad

I was looking for a biography and history of George Whitfield and his impact in the world. This book does contain some of that, but it’s really more about his theology, and a sort of evangelical hero worship of the man along with sone bemoaning the current state of preaching in America. The first part is interesting. Most of the rest of it is kind of repetitive with not much of interest. It is ok but not great.

Fantastic book

I love Steven Lawson‘s work in the narrator Simon Vance always does a great job. So awesome to hear about the zeal God put in one man and how influence so many others after him. May we as Christians ask God for that zeal and live a life that is fully pleasing to him.
