Methodism in the American Forest By Russell E. Richey

Main Article Content

Thomas Edward Frank


Russell E. Richey is now well established as the preeminent contemporary interpreter of the history of American Methodism, and his latest volume, with the intriguing title Methodism in the American Forest, marks yet another original contribution to the understanding of the Methodist past. Richey is unsurpassed in his encyclopedic grasp of the journals, diaries, sermons, minutes, and records of Methodist conferences and preachers in the first century of Methodism in America (1760s through the 1800s). Each time he returns to these materials, he discovers a fresh angle of vision.
