"E.A. Johnston clearly demonstrates the magnitude of the God Whitefield served and shows the glory of God in the life of an ordinary man with a God-sized vision and passion. By the use of a wonderful array of quotations, observations and pointed applications, the power of God is revealed. These pages are both humbling and inspiring" (Richard Owen Roberts).
This is an excellent book, documenting the life of a man totally dedicated to the cause of Christ. The book presents Whitefield 'warts and all' and provides a warm portrait of a man who was truly 'after God's own heart'. The book is thoroughly researched and is both challenging and uplifting. Heartily recommended! A 'must read' for all those who have a longing for revival in our day.
"I believe the life of George whitefield to be such a example of one like the Apostle Paul of old was fully surrounded and submitted to God's will. Whitefield walked in moment to moment obedience to Gods Spirit and thundered the Gospel to the Christ-less masses. It was the same Spirit that indwell the great apostles of old that lived in Whitefield and lives in us also. May we pray for the portion of the Spirit that Whtiefield had to be given to many evangelists in our day. This volume by Brother Ernest Johnston is a masterpiece that captures the life and labours of this man of God many of us admire. It is being offered at a great price and being re-published for the American audience. I whole-heartily recommend it to any saints who would be interested in this life of Whitefield:" - Greg Gordon (Founder of SermonIndex.net)
