Wesley, Whitefield, Edwards, Newton - familiar names from the 18th century spiritual revivals in Britain and America. However, Clare Heath-Whyte's book isn't about the famous men, about whom so much has already been written. Instead, she offers insights into the women who made their ministries fruitful, and perhaps even possible! From Susanna Wesley's formidable spirituality in motherhood to the Wesley brothers, through to Selina, Countess of Huntingdon's use of her worldly assets for the gospel, these women were remarkable, and yet also sinful. This book doesn't try to hide their failings, but rather uses them to offer the reader something to learn from.
