Foreword by Michael A.G. Haykin


John Berridge (1716–1793) was the vicar of Everton in Bedfordshire and a leader in the eighteenth-century revival. Known for his itineration, earnest preaching, colourful personality, independence of mind and sense of humour, he also published his own hymns and a book on the Calvinistic controversy of the day. These letters, including some to John Wesley, Rowland Hill, Henry Venn, John Newton, John Thornton and Lady Huntingdon, reveal his Christ-centred spirituality, plain speaking, unusual writing style and compassionate concern. 


This is a hugely important volume. It opens a window on the much neglected world of non-Wesleyan Methodism and helps us to re-evaluate the scale, nature and importance of the eighteenth-century Methodist movement.

—Jonathan Rodell, author of The Rise of Methodism


This complete edition of all known extant Berridge letters will be warmly welcomed. With its editor’s excellent notes and identifications, the letters take us to the heart of the Evangelical Revival, its personalities, opportunities, hazards and achievements, reminding us of one of its greatly loved leaders, renowned for his rich spirituality, direct speech and playful humour.

—Raymond Brown, formerly Principal of Spurgeon’s College, London


As an admirer of John Berridge, I welcome this mammoth collection of his letters, enriched by Nigel Pibworth’s careful editing and especially his comprehensive footnotes.

—B.A. Ramsbottom, editor of the Gospel Standard


The Letters of John Berridge: A Singular Spirituality is a superb introduction to one of eighteenth-century British Evangelicalism’s most colourful pastors. In his careful editing and annotating of Berridge’s letters, Nigel Pibworth has contributed significantly to the understanding of eighteenth-century Evangelical spirituality. At the same time, Pibworth makes accessible a figure whose life and example can still teach pastors and laypersons today what it means to have a vibrant faith, a sustained ministry, and a life of faithful service to Jesus Christ.

—David T. Wood, author of The Eccentric Vicar of Everton
