In Their Own Words

Whitfield Preached Often and with Vigor

William Stephens wrote - as he frequently did - about the fervor with which George Whitfield preached; even his own brethren could be an object of his sermons :

“…Mr. Whitfield went on without slackening his Rate of four Times a Day, weekly, in praying, preaching, expounding and admitiistering the Sacrament: Wherein he took great Pains, exhorting his Hearers to a steadfast, saving Faith; the same as when he preached here last, on the 10th of February, and before: Wherein 1 wished he had spared his Invectives against the Clergy.”
