Publisher's Note:

These biographical sketches introduce the reader to eleven Christian leaders who were immensely influential in the evangelical revival that took place in the eighteenth century in England. We follow the lives of George Whitefield, John Wesley, William Romaine and others, and are given insights into their character, preaching and published works. Faithful preaching of the message of the Bible, incessant activity and unflagging concern for souls was common to them all – concepts largely lost today. Inspirational reading for all. J C Ryle (1816-1900) served the Suffolk parish of Stradbroke before becoming the first Bishop of Liverpool in 1880. His vigorous and practical writing style ensures his works remain influential. He is renowned for his Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Holiness, together with other works, many of which are still in print. First published in 1869 as Christian Leaders of the Last Century, the individual sketches having appeared as articles in The Family Treasury. This edition has been completely re-typeset for issue in this format.
