Overview

Historical Dictionary of Methodism, Second Edition offers more than 400 entries that describe the church founders, leaders, and other prominent figures who have made notable contributions to the church and society as a whole, as well as important events, doctrines, and activities. This book covers a denomination that plays an important role in the ecumenical movement through its many social and charitable activities in world affairs.

In 2003, Methodists celebrated the 300th anniversary of the birth of their founder, John Wesley. Currently, more than 300 Methodist congregations are active in 140 nations worldwide. Many new and first-time entries for these regions are provided, and the impressive list of contributors includes more than 60 academics, administrators, pastors, and theologians.

This new edition has a 15-page section containing historical photographs of founding members and humanitarian efforts, along with an extensive bibliography of important books on the history and theological heritage of Methodism, plus a detailed list of important libraries and depositories of Methodist materials, especially in Great Britain and North America.
