Great History and easy to read Dec 19, 2006
Dr. Robert Drew Simpson was our minister in New Jersey for 25 years and all his wit and warmth comes through in this terrific collection of Methodist antecdotes from the early years of Methodism in America. We find this a great addition to the confirmation curriculum since it deftly brings a human face to Methodist history.
"The Wild and the Wesleyan" Aug 6, 2000
At last, here is a book that presents the quirky and all-too-human side of Methodist history. You'll meet a wide array of ministerial giants -- from Francis Asbury, the tireless itinerant bishop roundly acknowledged to be the father of American Methodism...to "Crazy" Dow, an evangelist with as many idiosyncracies as a "Northern Exposure" character. This is not dry historical reading by any stretch. A must-read for any student of Methodism or mainstream religion in general, this is a colorful window into one of the most influential religious organizations in the world.
