“George Whitefield at 300: Remembering the Eighteenth Century’s Greatest Revivalist”

November 13-14, 2014
whitefield2Alexander Reading Room

December 2014 marks the 300th birthday of George Whitefield, the leading evangelist of the First Great Awakening, and the most famous person in America prior to the American Revolution. In spite of his remarkable career, Whitefield remains strangely unknown today, but his 300th birthday represents a major opportunity to revisit the triumphs and controversies generated by his preaching ministry. This symposium will gather a range of experts on George Whitefield and the Anglo-American evangelical movement in order to consider Whitefield’s titanic influence on Christian faith in his own time, and on Christian movements through the present day.
