This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Religion - Key Figures - George Whitfield. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Largely forgotten today, George Whitefield was probably the most famous religious figure of the 18th century. Newspapers called him the "marvel of the age." Whitefield was a preacher capable of commanding thousands on two continents through the sheer power of his oratory. In his lifetime, he preached at least 18,000 times to perhaps 10 million hearers.
With every trip across the Atlantic, he became more popular. Indeed, much of the early controversy that surrounded Whitefield's revivals disappeared (critics complained of the excess enthusiasm of both preacher and crowds), and former foes warmed to a mellowed Whitefield.
Before his tours of the colonies were complete, virtually every man, woman, and child had heard the "Grand Itinerant" at least once. So pervasive was Whitefield's impact in America that he can justly be styled America's first cultural hero. Before Whitefield, it is doubtful any name, other than royalty, was known equally from Boston to Charleston.
The presentation covers the following:
Meeting the Wesley’s
Rejection In England’s Churches
Whitfield & The Wesley’s
