Billye Brim's comments: "I'm so glad they've brought this book back into print. God used this man to unite the colonies into the peoples who wrote the Declaration of Independence. This English preacher sailed the Atlantic 13 times, daring "to trust that his preaching might help create one nation under God—thirteen scattered colonies united with each other…." He rode horseback and canoe through fair weather and foul. Wherever he preached huge crowds gathered, and Benjamin Franklin calculated that 30,000 could hear his voice at one time. He literally gave his life for his vision, "One nation under God." When I finished the book, I didn't want to stop reading about the life of the man who was the best-known person throughout the 13 colonies. America was literally born out of The Great Awakening. One source, Unto a Good Land, by David Edwin Harrell, Jr. concludes, "To be sure, Whitefield did not do it alone, though it is worth noting that the first individual to bring some degree of unity to the colonies was not a politician but a preacher."
