Scholarship on the history and development of Methodism has flourished as scholars and general readers have become aware of its importance as a world church—with approximately 40 million members in 300 Methodist denominations in 140 nations. Celebrations marking the 300th anniversary of the births of its founders, John and Charles Wesley, provided an additional focus on the evolution of the movement which became a church.

This invaluable handbook introduces the history, theology, and practice of Methodism. Essays from a variety of experts concentrate on key themes, methodology, and research problems for those interested in studying the origins and development of Methodism around the world.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

The Methodist Companion is a veritable cornucopia, overflowing with the ripe fruits of recent scholarship. Beginning with the contributions of two leading authorities on the Wesleys, the editor has persuaded acknowledged experts to review a wide range of related topics.

—John A. Vickers, former head of religious and social studies, West Sussex Institute of Higher Education

This important volume needs to be on the bookshelves, and frequently in the hands, of all students of the worldwide family of Methodist and Wesleyan traditions.

—Rex D. Matthews, associate professor in the practice of historical theology, Candler School of Theology, Emory University.

This is a significant and indispensable resource on Methodism as one of the branches in the global ecumenical tree of churches. The up-to-date treatment of essential Methodist issues from theological, spiritual, historical, liturgical, geographical, and cultural perspectives is highly recommendable.
