"This is the first biography of William Huntington. It is remarkable that although nearly a hundred years have elapsed since his death; although he was by far the most impressive and most famous preacher of his age; although his masterpieces, The Bank of Faith, The Kingdom of Heaven Taken by Prayer, and Contemplations on the God of Israel, have been read and treasured by millions, both in this country and in America; although the first two have been rivalled in popularity by only one other English religious work, The Pilgrim's Progress; although even the most hostile of critics have paid involuntary tributes to the virility of his style and the absorbing interest of his matter; nevertheless no biography of him as previously been published." - Preface.
William Huntington (1744-1813), an English Calvinistic Methodist preacher. “He passed his early life in menial service and dissipation, but after conversion he entered the ministry, and became a popular preacher in London. On his books he took the title S.S., or Sinner Saved.” – M’Clintock & Strong.
“ I cannot get a D.D. for the want of cash, neither can I get at M.A. for want of learning; therefore I am compelled to fly for refuge to S.S., by which I mean Sinner Saved.” – Huntington.
