    1. a wonderfully written book recommend for an insight into God s amazing work through this woman and others in the time of Wesley and Whitefield She went through terrible losses and setbacks, stood up to John Wesley when he went down the path of perfectionism, never lost sight of her Saviour Whom she served so creatively She worked till she died, though often very ill herself She set up training colleges, put evangelists into high society, suffered much ridicule, personally funded gospel opportuni [...]


    2. Here is a biography of a remarkable lady used of God for the furtherance of His kingdom She used her station, her contacts, her influence,her strengh of character, her money to reach out to the lost, both the rich and the poor She had churches built, encouraged pastors, payed for the education of pastors, and invited rich and poor into her home that they may hear the gospel preached, just to name a few ways God used her She reached out to the poor women with the gospel, the result being the beli [...]


    3. Wow This was great A shockingly human portrayal of one of the Great Awakening s forgotten heroes, not to mention all the famous men Whitfield, John and Charles Wesley, Howell Harris, Philip Doddridge who also appear Cook does a really good job presenting Selina as a multidimensional human being, simul justus et peccator Overall, the book painted a very objective, charitable picture of all the parties involved When the Calvinists and Arminians disagreed, it _hurt_, because I empathized and unders [...]


    4. Interesting perspective Selina was able to do a lot of good with her influence and money You see it wasn t always roses, and there was still a lot of disputes, much as there are now I do think at times the power went to her head, and she was a bit of a control freak However, there is no doubt she did an awful lot of good This has been well researched, but at a couple of points became tedious,having given rather too much detail in parts.


    5. If you re interested in the 18th century Evangelical awakening, this is a nice alternative viewpoint Otherwise, it s just a lot of trivial information about an avid church planter who lived 250 years ago.
