Product Description

This volume, part of a two-volume set, contains documents from between the 1760 and 1998 pertaining to movements constitutive of American United Methodism. The editors identify more than two hundred documents by date, primary agent, and central theme or important action. The documents are organized on a strictly chronological basis, by the date of the significant action in the excerpt. Charts, graphs, timelines, and graphics are also included. This sourcebook has been constructed to be used witht he narrative volume. There the interpretation of individual documents, discussions of context, details about events and individuals, and treatment of the large developments can be found. This book focuses on United Methodism and its predecessor movements, with primary attention to its United States expression. Some of American Methodism's global interest are represented by letters, reports, or journal excerpts, but only those original aimed at a North American reader. Developments that resulted in the formation of the African Methodist Episcopal Church or the Wesleyan Methodists or the Free Methodists are followed only to the poinht of the fracturing of the denomination. The documents do attend the various parties and groups within American United Methodism--particularly the ethnic groups and caucuses through which much of the vitality of contemporary United Methodism comes to expression--while aware that the entire United Methodist experience or the wider Methodist family is not entirely represented here.
