Early Methodist Spirituality: Selected Women's Writings
Paul Wesley Chilcote
Kingswood Books, 2007 - Religion - 396 pages
An anthology of writings of late-18th and early-19th century Methodist women.
Writings of early Methodist women have compelling stories to tell. This volume puts us in touch with a lost heritage of vital spirituality that can transform lives and the church, even today. 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 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. They reveal a "way of devotion," a way of living out the Christian faith that conjoins personal piety and social action, conversion and growth in grace.
