Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a book that will be useful in courses on American religion and of great interest to anyone engaged in the study of Methodism in America, lay and clergy alike. It is a book that will appeal to any informed reading public, well uritten and attractively presented with a number of plates of early Methodists. We are grateful to Professor Wigger for this impressive work."--Church History


"This is a solid, trustworthy, well-written analysis of the early Methodist movement....It is a substantial contribution to the literature on the religion of the antebellum era."--The Journal of American History


"A book that enriches our understanding of how Methodism was situated on the cultural landscape of the early republic."--Journal of the Early Republic


"...you will be spellbound by the accounts of early Methodism published in this book."--Good News


"Those seeking to better understand not only Methodist history or American church history but American social history as a whole will gain invaluable insights from Wigger's work. While extensively documented--a real strength--the book will be easily understood by the general reader as well as the scholar."--Michigan Historical Review

Quite good for a school assigned book, and one I'll be happy to add to my collection. It was interesting, and helped answer my big question, "Why the heck does Virginia have so many methodist churches?"
