In the eighteenth century God used men such as John and Charles Wesley, George Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards to bring spiritual revival to both Britain and America – but what about the women in their lives? What was it like to live and work with such dynamic and demanding men?
While looking through the lens of history, Clare Heath–Whyte draws out lessons for today, via the honest portraits of these seven unique women.
From godliness to bitterness, hostility to courage, the lives of these extraordinary women point us to a faithful God, even in the midst of the most difficult of life’s scenarios.
