George Whitefield was one of the founders of Methodism and the evangelical movement, but he is most famous for his preaching in England and the American colonies. George Whitefield Tercentenary Essays celebrates this major figure in the spread of the Great Awakening in Britain. Edited by William Gibson and Thomas W. Smith, this special issue of The Journal of Religious History, Literature and Culture comprises some of the papers delivered at the “George Whitefield after Three Hundred Years” International Conference held in June 2014 at Pembroke College at the University of Oxford, commemorating the tercentenary of George Whitefield’s birth in 1714.
