Voorkant
Cambridge University Press, 5 mei 2005 - 283 pagina's
With over 75 million currently practicing Methodists worldwide, this book treats Methodism as a global religious tradition, examining its rich diversity as well as the core beliefs and attitudes that all Methodists share. It serves as an introduction to the patterns of Methodist life, demonstrating how the religion has developed from British and American roots in different cultural contexts. In addition to the lasting traditions of John and Charles Wesley, An Introduction to Methodism reflects the on-going contribution of Methodism to the ecumenical movement and inter-religious relations. Its analysis includes abundant resources encouraging further study. Kenneth Cracknell is Professor of Theology and Global Studies at Brite Divinity School, Fort Worth, Texas.
