Mesopotamia

“ (George) Whitfield was a natural phrase-maker, and so much more effective a preacher than (John) Wesley that Benjamin Franklin warned people who planned to meet him that they should empty their pockets before the introduction. Otherwise he would persuade them to give all that they had to the poor.


It was said that (Whitfield) could bring tears to a congregation’s eyes merely by whispering “Mesopotamia”.

( p 127 The Life of John Wesley, Roy Hattersley, Doubleday 2003)
