George Whitefield

George Whitefield lived from 1714 to 1770. From 22 years of age he was the foremost figure in a religious movement that held the attention of the entire English-speaking world: the Great Awakening. Perhaps only the Reformation or even the apostolic age itself could surpass the spiritual fervor God poured out at that time. George Whitefield preached in England, Scotland, Wales, Gibraltar, Bermuda, and the American colonies. All the preachers of this era were men of doctrine, and men of fervor who strove to give their lives 100 percent to Christ Jesus. Whitefield had charisma; his loud voice, his small stature, and even his cross-eyed appearance (which some people took as a mark of divine favor) all served to help make him one of the first celebrities in the American colonies.
