520    "In the years prior to the American Revolution, George 
       Whitefield was the most famous man in the colonies. Thomas
       Kidd's fascinating new biography explores the 
       extraordinary career of the most influential figure in the
       first generation of Anglo-American evangelical 
       Christianity, examining his sometimes troubling stands on 
       the pressing issues of the day, both secular and spiritual,
       and his relationships with such famous contemporaries as 
       Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan Edwards, and John Wesley. 
       Based on the author's comprehensive studies of 
       Whitefield's original sermons, journals, and letters, this
       excellent history chronicles the phenomenal rise of the 
       trailblazer of the Great Awakening. Whitefield's 
       leadership role among the new evangelicals of the 
       eighteenth century and his many religious disputes are 
       meticulously covered, as are his major legacies and the 
       permanent marks he left on evangelical Christian faith. It
       is arguably the most balanced biography to date of a 
       controversial religious leader who, though relatively 
       unknown three hundred years after his birth, was a true 
       giant in his day and remains an important figure in 
       America's history"--|cProvided by publisher.
