George Whitefield

Evangelist of the 18th-Century Revival

Arnold Dallimore

This outstanding work is now back in print and we would encourage all customers to consider it for their own reading and as a gift to others. Dr Dallimore is beyond doubt the leading modern authority on the life of Whitefield. He writes with a full command of his subject, and also with great warmth. This is the condensed edition of his renowned two-volume work.


Whitefield was for many years at the centre of the events of the 18th-century revival. This book therefore provides a marvellous overview of those events and also portrays most of the other personalities, both the well-known and the not so well-known. This is a most manageable, stirring and rewarding narrative of an outstanding life and mighty spiritual blessing.
