Great Blessing to Me, A: John Newton Encounters George Whitefield
2 in stock
George Whitefield, regarded as the preaching wonder of his day, and John Newton, one of the leading spiritual guides of the movement that Whitefield had a significant hand in creating, Evangelicalism, are perennially interesting figures.
These lives, intertwined as this study of a portion of those lives reveals, speak across the centuries to our day. These two marvelous characters have much to teach contemporary Christians. A great read for both the professional historian and the thoughtful Christian.
"George Whitefield and John Newton were two of the titans of eighteenth-century British evangelicalism. But for too long, the precise nature of their mutual influence has remained unclear. Grant Gordon's much-needed book rectifies that problem with its treasure trove of illuminating research."?
