What makes William Robinson's letter of 1741 so significant is that it checks three important boxes:
- It highlights historical figures who have played a critical role on the world stage-namely George Whitfield, an Anglican cleric and evangelist.- It describes a significant event: The Great Awakening, a series of Christian revivals that swept through the American colonies.- It was written during an extraordinary time: the smallpox epidemic was raging, and severe weather had pummeled the land.
As an itinerant evangelist in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina-seven of the colonies, and perhaps eight with Georgia, Robinson had a great vantage point of historical events. While he may not have been as well-known as Whitfield, he was just as fervent in his belief.
Revelatory and down-to-earth, Light the Fire Again offers a look at the life and work of an important man of God--and will inspire you to rekindle your faith and walk with the Lord.
