WHEN BENJAMIN FRANKLIN MET THE REVEREND WHITEFIELD: Witness to History
In the 1740s, two different developments revolutionized Anglo-American life and thought--the Enlightenment and the Great Awakening. Hoffer takes an encounter between the paragons of each movement, Benjamin Franklin and George Whitefield, as an opportunity to explore the meaning of the beginnings of modern science, and the evangelical religious enthusiasm.
