The Evangelistic Zeal of George Whitefield
Several features make Dr. Lawson's latest work noteworthy but I will only mention one!. First, the book is very interesting and readable. It is filled with historical facts that help readers contextualize the arena that Whitefield ministered in - on both sides of the Atlantic.. This book came out in February of this year and is well worth the read. Anyone interested in learning more about the life, theology and influence of George Whitefield should read this book. I highly recommend not only this book but this series . Not a boring book but one that the entire family can enjoy!This book is short and approachable, yet packed with enough knowledge for you to know George Whitefield very well!
Please note: Reformation Trust / Ligonier Ministries has provided me with an electronic version of this book for review purposes, and will be providing me with a hard copy edition in exchange for this review. They do not require positive reviews, nor have they edited or modified this review in any way.And I also agree with REV. John F. MacArthur that this is a book you can't put down once you picked it up. This was an excellent book providing a look into the life of this great man of faith.I would recommend it most highly to pastors and other evangelical Christians whose zeal for God and spiritual wells have begun to run dry. But any one else will enjoy this volume too.
It is very difficult to adequately sum up so much content in just a few words, you will just have to read this book for your self. This is one of the greatest biographies ever written.”
