|About the Book|
Rowland Hill (17441833) was one of the most intriguing and astonishing characters of early evangelicalism. An independent preacher, he was admired by those who knew him but ridiculed and criticized by his opponents, especially at Cambridge. He had connections with the General Evangelical Society, and helped spread the gospel across Britain. Touted as the second Whitefield, Hills preaching spread evangelical convictions in an age when rationalism, deism, and enlightenment philosophies were sweeping the nation.
