Summary
George Whitefield and Ben Franklin came from separate countries, had different philosophies, and led dissimilar lives. But they were fast friends. Franklin was the American prototype: hard-working, inventive, with humble manners and lofty dreams. Whitefield was the most popular preacher in an era of great piety. His preaching was heard by thousands. When Whitefield died in 1770 he had built a spiritual foundation for a new nation---just as his friend, Franklin, had built its social foundation
