Selina Countess of Huntingdon

Faith Cook

$49.99

Hardback
Deeply admired by such contemporaries as King George III, Henry Venn and George Whitefield (who described her as "all in a flame for Jesus"), Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon (1707?91) left an indelible mark on the Evangelical Awakening of the Eighteenth Century. Closely involved for nearly forty years with the leaders of the revival, she gave herself unstintingly to the cause of Christ, contributing sacrificially to the construction of sixty-four chapels, the opening of many more, and the founding of Trevecca College in Wales. Drawing on unpublished sources, Faith Cook gives a deeper and truer-to-life portrait than any previously available. She introduces the reader to a gallery of eighteenth-century personalities, among whom the Countess secured an entrance for the gospel through the powerful preaching of such men as George Whitefield, William Romaine and John Fletcher. This major new biography not only rescues the Countess from undeserved obscurity and misrepresentation, but also shows what God can accomplish through the tireless labours of a godly woman whose heart's desire was that the "dear Lamb of God, my best, my eternal, my only Friend should have all dedicated to his service and glory".

- Publisher A major new biography of the 'mother in Israel' so greatly admired by King George III, George Whitefield and all the leaders of the Evangelical Revival, rescuing the Countess from undeserved obscurity and misrepresentation.
