Reviews - What do customers think about America's Bishop: The Life of Francis Asbury?

A Much Needed Addition  May 22, 2007
America's Bishop is a much needed addition to historical biography. Francis Asbury single-handedly established the Methodist Church on American soil. His commitment to remain in the States rather than return to England during the Revolutionary War established him as Methodism's leader. Academic neglect of this legendary figure is unacceptable. Thanks to Darius Salter, that problem has been partially fixed.

Despite lifelong physical difficulties, Asbury maintained a strict regiment circuit riding, preaching, leadership development, and spiritual discipline. Without his commitment to the American mission, Methodism would be a minor sect or nonexistent on American soil. Francis Asbury is truly on of the most neglected heroes in American religious history.

America's Bishop reads like a cross between a biography and scholarly work. Dates, places, and people are recorded with attention to detail. The chapters are a combination of chronological movement and theological/personal development of Francis Asbury. It is not necessarily a smooth read because of the details, but it is certainly a worthwhile read.
