With the decision to provide of a scholarly edition of the Works of John Wesley in the 1950s, Methodist Studies emerged as a fresh academic venture.
Building on the foundation laid by Frank Baker, Albert Outler, and other pioneers of the discipline, this handbook provides an overview of the best current scholarship in the field.
The forty-two included essays are representative of the voices of a new generation of international scholars, summarising and expanding ontopical research, and considering where their work may lead Methodist Studies in the future. Thematically ordered, the handbook provides new insights into the founders, history, structures, and theology of Methodism, and into ongoing developments in the practice and experience of the contemporary movement.
Key themes explored include worship forms, mission, ecumenism, and engagement with contemporary ethical and political debate.
