Main Article Content

Thomas S. Kidd


When Benjamin Franklin Met the Reverend Whitefield is part of The Johns Hopkins University Press series "Witness to History," of which Peter Charles Hoffer is an editor. These books are short, secondary source–based volumes geared toward an undergraduate audience. In that genre, Hoffer's book works well. It is deeply attuned to the scholarly literature, not only on Franklin and Whitefield, but on the eighteenth-century Atlantic world generally.
