George Whitefield

George Whitefield – Largely forgotten today, George Whitefield was probably the most famous religious figure of the eighteenth century.  Newspapers called him the “marvel of the age.” He was a preacher capable of commanding thousands through the sheer power of his oratory.  Though mentored by the Wesleys, Whitefield set his own theological course: he was a convinced Calvinist.  The spiritual revival he ignited, the Great Awakening, became one of the most formative events in American history.
