History of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Volume III.

Author:Bangs, Nathan (1778-1862)
Description:Perhaps no one was better suited to provide a written history of the Methodist Episcopal Church than Nathan Bangs. The brilliant, self-educated theologian had not only served as president of Wesleyan University, but he had also volunteered himself as an itinerant preacher in Canada during a time of war. Later, he founded the Methodist Missionary Society. The third volume of Bangs’ History picks up where the last left off, at the end of the War of 1812. With the Methodist church growing and gaining notoriety, controversies over theology and practice enabled it to better define itself. Bangs includes the names and proceedings of the General Conferences during this time (1816-1828).
