Product Description

"Hempton's unusually well-written book benefits from the recent surge of fine historical work on early Methodism and represents an analytical leap forward in its own right. It charts the Methodist course on both sides of the Atlantic, revisits old questions with fresh archival research,"---Christian Century. 304 pages, softcover. Yale University.

Publisher's Description

This lively history of the rise of Methodism charts the development of the movement from its unpromising origins in England in the 1730s to its major international importance by the 1880s. The book explores Methodism’s phenomenal growth in the British Isles, America, and around the globe, and the complex reasons for its wide-ranging appeal.
"This is an extraordinary book. It is jammed full of scintillating interpretations; it is beautifully written; and it conveys tremendous insight in a short compass. It will be recognized immediately as the classic work on the rise of Methodism."— Mark Noll, Wheaton College
"Clear, concise, original and formidably learned."—Eugen Weber, The Key Reporter
"Brilliantly provocative. . . . [A] masterful account."—Grant Wacker, Christian Century
