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.
