I enjoyed it. It's a good basic history of Methodism in the U.S. It traces all the origins of Wesleyan Christianity, including the German-speaking branches. A good book.

This sketchy synopsis is a good beginning place, an introduction to the long, successful and complex history of Methodists in America. This history, and subsequent ones, show that Methodists began as a response to specific religious and societal needs. As long as they were a fervent movement, they grew exponentially. Gradual institutionalization has slowed the ability for courageous witness, at a time when recent "movements" in the American society never voiced a courageous or radical witness to the New Testament Gospel. These began as self-serving phenomena.

This book gave me a good understanding of Methodism, of which I had knew little about. This helped me in writing a paper for school.
