Item description for Early Methodist Spirituality: Selected Women's Writings by Paul Wesley Chilcote...
Overview These selections from the writings of early Methodist women vividly illustrate the richness of women's contributions to the life of the church and the legacy of Wesleyan spirituality. The selections reveal a "way of devotion," that is, a way of living out the Christian faith that conjoins personal piety, social action, conversion, and growth in grace. The religious accounts, diaries, and journals; prayers, hymns, and sacred poems; and narrative practical divinity brought together here for the first time, provide a new vantage point from which to view the wonderful spiritual awakening of Wesley's day.
