This chapter provides an account of the interactions between Whitefield and the colonial American preacher and theologian Jonathan Edwards of Northampton, Massachusetts, first during Whitefield’s visit there in 1740 and especially during the virtually ignored visit of 1745, showing that there were initial points of friction between the two. However, Whitefield’s subsequent moderation, combined with Edwards’s evolving views of the revivals, resolved the friction to a large extent. In the end, Edwards’s public support of Whitefield as an instrument of God and as a fellow labourer in the revival vineyard reflected a consensus they had reached about the nature of the subjectivity of spiritual experience.
