George Whitefield’s Sermons in PBB format

Whitefield was an astounding preacher from the beginning, and within a year it was said that “his voice startled England like a trumpet blast.” At a time when London had a population of less than 700,000, he could hold spellbound 20,000 people at a time at Moorfields and Kennington Common. For thirty-four years his preaching resounded throughout England and America. He was a firm Calvinist in his theology, yet unrivaled as an aggressive evangelist. Though he was slender in build, he stormed in the pulpit as if he were a giant.
