If you are still agonizing over how to select that life-changing-yet-affordable Christmas gift, we at the Anxious Bench — especially the prolific among us — are here to help.
A few days ago, Christianity Today announced that our Thomas Kidd’s biography of George Whitefield has won its 2015 book award for History / Biography. I praised the book last year here. Whitefield was a trans-Atlantic evangelist who exerted a deep and lasting influence on the development of evangelicalism in the United States. Richly researched, fair in its analysis, and inspiring in its subject matter. Congratulations — well deserved! If you buy this book for loved ones and friends unfamiliar with Whitefield, be sure to tell them that his name is pronounced Whit-field.
