Written a century after the death of Whitefield, The Prince of Pulpit Orators: A Portraiture of Rev. George Whitefield is a series of character sketches and anecdotes depicting his life. J. B. Wakeley paints a vivid picture of the character and person of Whitefield with a concentrated effort placed on the description of the delivery and content of Whitefield's sermons. This work also goes by the title, Anecdotes of the Rev. George Whitefield.
Reading the life of such a great saint—this Christ-loving, gospel-centered minister—has served to rekindle my passion for the gospel and rejuvenate the love of God in my soul more than once.
J. B. Wakeley was a nineteenth century author who also wrote biographical resources regarding the Wesley family.
