Editorial Reviews


'This book is a comprehensive introduction to the history, theology, sociology, belief and practice of Methodism.' Publishing News

'... a splendid contribution ... an impressive blend of comprehensiveness and depth. ... This illuminating and accessible study serves its purpose admirably, but would also enrich the understanding of those already familiar with Methodism.' Methodist Recorder

'This is an engaging narrative, scholarly (with a light touch), and holistic.' Church Times

'... it is written in an interesting and lively way with fascinating illustrations of Methodist thought and experience across the years. It deserves to be widely read inside and outside the denomination.' ANVIL

'This book is beautifully and passionately written with a wealth of quotation from hymns, sermons and other Methodist sources. it can especially be commended to colleagues of other traditions seeking to understand what Methodism is.' Epworth Review

'This important and useful book should be found in the libraries of all who would count themselves as scholars of Methodism. With the great range of topics covered, and the authority with which Cracknell and White address their topic, this is a worthy addition to the Cambridge University Press series of introductions to World religious traditions.' Reviews in Religion and Theology

'This is an impressive study, supported by an excellent bibliography.' Theology

Book Description

There are over 75 million Methodists in the world today. This book is an introduction to the patterns of Methodist life and belief around the globe, and shows how Methodism has developed from its British and American roots in different cultural contexts. This is the first book to treat Methodism as an global religious tradition, examining its rich diversity as well as the core beliefs and attitudes that all Methodists share. It also considers the on-going contribution of Methodism to the ecumenical movement and inter-religious relations.
