About The Book

The Elect Methodists is the first full-length academic study of Calvinistic Methodism, a movement that emerged in the eighteenth century as an alternative to the better known Wesleyan grouping. While the branch of Methodism led by John Wesley has received significant historical attention, Calvinistic Methodism, especially in England, has not. The book charts the sources of the eighteenth-century Methodist revival in the context of Protestant evangelicalism emerging in continental Europe and colonial North America, and then proceeds to follow the fortunes in both England and Wales of the Calvinistic branch, to the establishing of formal denominations in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

‘This sure-footed volume is likely to become the standard introductory text for all students of early Methodism in its Calvinistic clothing.’ – Andrew Atherstone, Journal of Ecclesiastical History

‘Because of The Elect Methodists, Calvinistic Methodism will be better represented both in Methodist bibliography and in a richer academic conversation.’ – Charles I. Wallace, Church History

‘The Elect Methodists has moved scholarship on the evangelical revival forward by bringing together the interconnected history of early Welsh and English Calvinistic Methodism. The three authors have provided a solid model of collaborative historical writing – indeed, the cleverly-titled book is melded together seamlessly so that it reads like a single author volume.’ – Geordan Hammond, Wesley and Methodist Studies
