"Dorothy Day was more than an 'armchair' theologian enjoying casual conversations about theology with friends from the comfort of her easy chair. She was a theologian with 'street cred.' Day commands respect because of her experience living among, with, and as the marginalized. Her awareness and knowledge of the challenges faced by people living in poverty stemmed from and were shaped by her relationships with them. The presumed distance of academic objectivity does not apply to her story. She did more than think and talk about her faith; she embodied it. She did more than challenge the failures of the Christian church or surrounding local community to address the needs of people in poverty; she created new community." --from the introduction

Beginning as a renewal movement within Anglicanism in the eighteenth century, Methodism had become the largest Protestant denomination in the USA in the nineteenth century, and is today one of the most vibrant forms of Christianity. Representing a complex spiritual and evangelistic experiment that involves a passionate commitment to worldwide mission, it covers a global network of Christian denominations. In this Very Short Introduction William J. Abraham trace Methodism from its origins in the work of John Wesley and the hymns of his brother, Charles Wesley, in the eighteenth century, right up to the present. Considering the identity, nature, and history of Methodism, Abraham provides a fresh account of the place of Methodism in the life and thought of the Christian Church. Describing the message of Methodism, and who the Methodists are, he also considers the practices of Methodism, and discusses the global impact of Methodism and its decline in the homelands. Finally Abraham looks forward, and considers the future prospects for Methodism.

John Wesley claimed to be a man of one book and early Wesley scholarship accepted uncritically that the Bible was his supreme authority. In the late twentieth-century American Wesley scholars discussed what has been termed the Wesley Quadrilateral (the authority of the Bible, tradition, reason and experience) and this to some extent does help explain the method by which Wesley read and interpreted the Bible. However, modern biblical reader-response criticism has drawn attention to the central role of the reader in his/her interpretation of scriptural texts. Donald Bullen argues that Wesley came to the Bible as a reader with the presuppositions of an eighteenth century High Church, Arminian Anglican, in which tradition he had grown up. He then found his beliefs confirmed in the scriptural text. Claiming to base all his beliefs on the Bible, he found himself in controversy with others who made similar claims but came to different conclusions. The implications of this are explored in depth.
