About the Book
From its fiery revivalists to socially conscious reformers, The Wesleyan Church is a movement with a rich tradition and inspiring history in America. Robert Black and Keith Drury trace the church’s heritage from its roots in European and American Methodism, through the 1968 merger of the Wesleyan Methodist and Pilgrim Holiness Churches, all the way to recent historic events.
The coauthors each represent one of the merging denominations which formed the church in 1968, weaving Pilgrim Holiness and Wesleyan Methodist threads into a single, colorful tapestry that both represents the history and anticipates the future of The Wesleyan Church. Pastors, students, and others interested in what God is doing in the world will not want to miss this narrative history.
ROBERT BLACK is professor emeritus of religion at Southern Wesleyan University where he served for thirty-two years. He is author of the university’s history, How Firm a Foundation, and has contributed to a number of historical reference works as well as the Wesleyan Bible Commentary series.
KEITH DRURY is professor emeritus of religion at Indiana Wesleyan University. He is the author of more than a dozen books on practical spirituality, including Holiness for Ordinary People, now in print for over thirty-five years, Common Ground, and Ageless Faith.
