Title: Wesley and the Wesleyans
Authors: kent, john
Keywords: Wesleyans challenges
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Description: The book starts from the assumption that there was no largescale religious revival during the eighteenth century. Instead, the role of what is called ‘primary religion’ – the normal human search for ways of drawing supernatural power into the private life of the individual – is analysed in terms of the emergence of the Wesleyan societies from the Church of England. The Wesleys’ achievements are reassessed; there is a fresh, unsentimental description of the role of women in the movement; and an unexpectedly sympathetic picture emerges of Hanoverian Anglicanism.
