Life of Rowland Hill, The: The Second Whitefield
1 in stock
Rowland Hill (1744-1833) was one of the most intriguing and astonishing characters of early evangelicalism. An independent preacher, he was admired by those who knew him but ridiculed and criticised by his opponents, especially at Cambridge. Touted as 'the second Whitefield,' Hill's preaching spread evangelical convictions in an age when rationalism, deism and enlightenment philosophies were sweeping the nation.
Written in a lively and engaging style, The Life of Rowland Hill transports the reader back to a dramatic age of conflict and upheaval. Published in a time when interest in the origins and spread of evangelicalism has gained impetus, this biography will reinstate Hill as a central and compelling figure in the progress of evangelicalism in the age of reason.
"This new book by Tim Shenton is a delight. We are given an excellent portrayal of Rowland Hill, the man, his times, and his achievements under God, as well as fresh incentive for praise to God and prayer that he might raise up like men in our day of small things."?
