Understanding history rests largely on a grasp of two things: sequence and context. This volume lays out the most important events in the history of the Wesleyan/Methodist movement, shows them in their proper order, and includes the most important occurrences taking place on the national and international stages at the same time. Matthews presents the material in an easy-to-comprehend and visually appealing layout, enumerating the major trends and developments in Methodist history from 1700-2004. The enclosed CD contains an electronic, searchable version of the timetables.
Winner of the 2007 Saddlebag Selection Award from the Historical Society of The United Methodist Church as "the best book published during the year on the history, biography, polity or theology of United Methodism or its predecessors."
Rex D. Matthews is Assistant Professor in the Practice of Historical Theology at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia.
