Marketing our preaching

Dan Edelen reflects on the content and methodology of preaching with some interesting historical information on an early American marketer of preaching.

Clarification: As I should have made more clear, although Whitfield did a lot of preaching in North American, he was himself British.

Thanks for the link!

I do have one minor correction, though. George Whitefield was technically British. He lived in England and (I believe) made thirteen preaching tours of America.

One other interesting note about him. He was converted through the ministry of the Wesleys and started out in Methodism, but turned to Calvinism before his preaching ministry came to the fore. Still, he was one of the most fired up Calvinists anyone had ever met!

Thanks for the correction. I knew Whitfield had come to Georgia with the Wesleys, but I thought he'd stayed. I'll update the post. Peace.
