 About the Book 

Based on extensive original archival research, this definitive history traces the origins and evolution of Methodism in Scotland, through the 19th century’s Connexions—circuits of prayer groups who would employ traveling ministers—to the 20th centuryMoreBased on extensive original archival research, this definitive history traces the origins and evolution of Methodism in Scotland, through the 19th century’s Connexions—circuits of prayer groups who would employ traveling ministers—to the 20th century’s wartime and ecumenical activity. A human story, this book not only asses the activities of lay local preachers and Sunday school teachers, men and women who broke new ground as they shared the gospel, but also demonstrates how personal aspirations and disappointments fit into the larger picture.
