"The Making of Methodism" has since its first publication proved to be one of the most popular resources for those who are exploring the background and the history of Methodism for the first time. As well as telling the story of John Wesley and his followers in a way that is accessible to the non-specialist, the text is interspersed with short extracts from original sources which allow the early Methodist to speak for themselves. Barrie Tabraham traces the origins of Methodism from the time of John Wesley to the present day. The new updated edition of this popular volume draws on recent events and sources showing how Methodism whilst being faithful to its roots and traditions engages with the changing situation of the contemporary world.
Barrie Tabraham is a Methodist minister in London with wide experienced in adult education and open learning.
