He lived at a period
 
comparatively so recent, that several who died inour own days had sat at his feet and listened to hiswonderful eloquence. His labours were not confinedto one flock, or even to a single nation, but expandedover both hemispheres, wherever the English languagewas spoken ; so that, had he possessed the gift of tongues,we cannot imagine a single country from which hisvisits would have been withheld. And these labours,which, while he lived, electrified, delighted, and enlightened the noblest, the most eloquent, and accomplished of society, sent a new spirit through the ChristianChurches, however separated from each other by theirpeculiar distinctions, so that the very echoes of his voicestill seem to linger among the walls of our national Zion,and give fresh impulses to Christian piety and Christianbrotherhood. A hundred years before its day, he wasa living type of that illustrious association of Christendom the Evangelical Alliance. And his, in fine, wasa life and a work such as the world has scarcely everwitnessed since the close of the first century. But whereare the voluminous narratives that should have beenwritten to record the deeds of such a man ? the statuesand monuments erected to honour them ? The pen of the ready writer, and the graving tool of the cunningVI PREFACE.workman, have been otherwise employed. The Life of Whitefield is chiefly to be gleaned, as yet, from isolatedand wide-scattered notices in the ecclesiastical historyof the last century; and the fruits of his heaven-directedmission are to be traced, not in the existence of a singlesect or party in the Church, but in the spirit of almostevery sect and party, whose dormant activities he roused,and whose expiring zeal he kindled. It is there thatyou read his history, in what may be truly called hieroglyphics sacred symbols, in which every action is portrayed by a correspondent picture or figure, rather than
