    • George Whitefield and his Impacts History 140 Professor Arguello
    •  He was a young Anglican minister who developed an evangelical style that was at odds with the dominant rationalism of the Church of England. He was one of the founders of Methodism and the evangelical movement. He became one of the most widely recognized public figure in colonial America because he traveled through the colonies.
    •  A Faithful Narrative of the Surprizing Work of God by Jonathan Edwards provided models of preaching and conversion that could guide revivals. This inspired Whitefield ,which led him to seek out poor people that were ignored by Anglicans. Whitefield was known for preaching in streets, fields and parks. It was clear God inspired his preachings because people would have outbursts of emotion when he would preach to his audiences.
    •  Whitefield traveled across the Atlantic to evangelize audiences and raise money for an orphanage in Georgia. Whitefield and Benjamin Franklin joined together and benefited from each other. Franklins printing business increased because Whitefield caused him to sell more newspapers by publishing his sermons and journals. The number of colonials imprints increased by 85 percent , mostly because of Whitefield.
    •  By 1745, 80,000 copies of Whitefields publications were made by American printers. Whitefield was very popular from Georgia to Maine, but not in the southern colonies because Anglicans distrusted his emotional preaching. He was the most popular in New England colonies where audience were more literate and newspapers were abundant.
