“He [Charles Wesley] put a book into my hands called ‘The Life of God in the Soul of Man,’ whereby God showed me that I must be born again, or be damned. I know the place; it may be superstitious, perhaps, but whenever I go to Oxford I cannot help running to that place where Jesus Christ first revealed himself to me and gave me the new birth.” – George Whitefield.
