Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story of [Methodism's] rise and growth has been told before, but in this new book an attempt is made to account for the movement's remarkable success, a success which in part ... was the result of Methodism's adaptability in the context of the prevailing popular religious culture in which Methodism took root." -- Kenneth Newport, Theological Book Review "Stunning, magnificent, pungent, well-crafted, beautifully written, painstakingly researched, lavishly documented, careful, comprehensive, insightful, compelling... It provides the best treatment of early American Methodism (to 1820) that we have and are likely to get any time soon." - Russell E. Richey, Wesleyan/Holiness Studies Center Bulletin "John Wigger has at last provided us with the wide-ranging, contextualized study of expansionary, early Methodism that we have long needed... This is a lucidly written work of scrupulous and unostentatious historical scholarship." - Richard J. Carwardine, Journal of Southern Religion "Exhaustively researched, beautifully written, broad and sweeping in conception and interpretation... By far the best account of early Methodism in America." -- David Edwin Harrell, Jr., Labour History Review
