Sanderson's fine history of the early years of Methodism in Canada has served as an essential resource for more than a century. Being out of print for over one hundred years, this new edition has been pubished to provide access for today's researchers. This editon is a facsimile reprint of both of the original volumes, bound into a single book.
6.5" X 9"
In The First Century of Methodism in Canada, the author addresses the most interesting and memorable events of early Canadian Methodism. Though his goal was to focus only on Methodism in Canada, he has included the history of Methodsm in Newfoundland in this two volume set. Newfoundland might have been thought to be outside the sphere of Canadian church history insofar as the Island was independant of Canada at the time when this book was written. To the benefit of readers, the author insisted on Newfoundland's inclusion because of the geographical and historical ties of the Island to Canada.
In attempting a record of the earliest years of any people or church, the analyst is apt to find a scarcity of material suitable to their purpose. By careful use of all available aids, the author successfully presents a picture of those early days for modern readers.
Several contemporary experts "on the topic of early Methodism in Canada assisted in preparation of these volumes, including the Rev. Drs. Cornish, Crews, Withrow, Burwash, and Professor McLaughlin by careful reading of the manuscript, and helpful suggestions; also to several Conferences for sympathetic and encouraging resolutions".
