Research

David’s research is currently focused on the trans-Atlantic revivalist, George Whitefield (1714-70). He is the Director of a project entitled ‘George Whitefield and Trans-Atlantic Protestantism’, and currently in receipt of a major two-year project grant from the Leverhulme Trust, which aims to produce the first scholarly edition of the extensive correspondence of George Whitefield. This edition will be published in seven volumes by Oxford University Press from 2020. David also co-organised the ‘George Whitefield at 300’ conference at Pembroke College, Oxford in June 2014, and has recently published George Whitefield: Life, Legacy and Context (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2016). David has also recently co-edited The Routledge Companion to the History of Evangelicalism (2018), and is about to publish Making Evangelical History: Faith, Scholarship and the Evangelical Past (Routledge 2019). In addition, he is co-ordinating a multi-authored history of Christianity in Wales from the Romans to the Present to be published by University of Wales Press in 2020.
