George Whitefield: Sermons Background

George Whitefield: Sermons Background

George Whitefield was an English evangelist who belonged to the Church of England during the eighteenth century. He was born during 1714 in England and died during 1770 in Massachusetts. His religious career consisted of evangelical/itinerant preaching throughout Britain as well as in the British American colonies, among other places.

At the heart of his great contribution to Christianity were his sermons based on different books of the Bible. Some examples are The Seed of the Woman and the Seed of the Serpent (Genesis 3:15), Christ the Best Husband (Psalm 45:10-11), The Potter and the Clay (Jeremiah 18:1-6), and The True Way of Keeping Christmas (Matthew 1:21). Despite how superb his sermons are, Whitefield is an underrated driving force of the Evangelical church.
