Chapter 20 is in the MW. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed. I'm familiar with Thomas Wingfold from George MacDonald's novels, so I was surprised to find him on this list. I didn't realize he was a real person!

Well, he wasn't. The chapter just gives the most salient points from George MacDonald's Thomas Wingfold, Curate. :roll: I wonder if Boreham thought the book was written about a real person, or if he knew it was fiction? I mean, he was very intelligent, but he couldn't just run an quick search on census records or anything. I suppose all of his information came from books, and some non-fiction does read like fiction sometimes. :hmm:

This is PL OK
I do remember reading for that project.
I think he must have been quite familiar with the book and author, so just stepping into that fictional reality. But, still a great Chapter.

Section 4 is also PL OK
Where would we be without Whitefield?
