Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"an impressive investigation of the main ways in which Methodism affected life in Atlantic Canada over some two hundred years. These papers bring together state of the art' knowledge of scholars in the field and will be a major reference tool. The essays of Acheson and Rawlyk are masterful." Naomi Griffiths, Department of History, Carleton University. "This rich collection helps to fill a major gap in the scholarly literature on Canadian Methodism. It opens up an important dimension of the religious history of the Atlantic region." William Westfall, Department of History, Atkinson College, York University.
Booknews
The Methodism of John Wesley was a vigorous presence in Atlantic Canada from its introduction in the 18th century until its incorporation into the United Church of Canada in 1925. In 14 papers originally presented at a conference held at Mount Allison U., October 1989, scholars in several disciplines break new ground and reject some long-accepted stereotypes to provide a better understanding of the culture of Atlantic Canada.
