Book Description

This book, together with a companion volume on the 20th century, offers an account of the overseas mission activity of British and Irish Methodists, its roots and fruits. Pritchard explores many aspects of mission, ranging from Labrador to New Zealand, from open air preaching to political engagement, from the isolation of early pioneers to the creation of self-governing churches. Tracing the nineteenth-century missionary work of the Churches with Wesleyan roots which went on to unite in 1932, Pritchard explores the shifting theologies and attitudes of missionaries who crossed cultural and geographical frontiers as well as those at home who sent and supported them.

Product Description

Review

'There has long been a need for a concise and comprehensive account of British Methodism's engagement in world mission. John Pritchard's volume admirably meets that need and will be essential reading for any student of Methodism.'Brian E Beck, former President and Secretary of the Methodist Conference

About the Author

John Pritchard was the General Secretary, Methodist Church Overseas Division (MMS) from 1991 to 1996, having previously served as its Africa Secretary. He had been a missionary with the Methodist Church in Cote d'Ivoire - then a District of the British Methodist Conference - from 1966 to 1975, and was Secretary of the committee which drafted its constitution as an autonomous Church. In the 1970s he edited Urban Africa, a quarterly magazine published by the All Africa Conference of Churches. He convened the Methodist Missionary History Project from its inception in 1994 and in 2009 inherited from Professor Andrew Walls responsibility for compressing the history into book form.
