A Sketch of the Life and Labors of George Whitefield
by J.C. Ryle
From the Preface
"My chief desire is to assist in forming a just estimate of Whitefield's worth. I wish to lend a helping hand towards raising his name from the undeservedly low place which is commonly assigned to it. I wish to place him before your eyes as a noble specimen of what the grace of God can enable one man to do. I want you to treasure up his name in your memories, as one of the brightest in that company of departed saints who were, in their day, patterns of good works, and of whom the world was not worthy.
I propose, therefore, without further preface, to give you a hasty sketch of Whitefield's times, Whitefield's life, Whitefield's religion, Whitefield's preaching, and Whitefield's actual work on earth."
This electronic version contains an updated prefatory 2011 biography of whitefield, a working table of contents, carefully edited text, and linked footnotes. It's the only version you'll ever need!
