Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0851550797, Hardcover)

This radical re-examination of the rise of early nineteenth-century Britain's largest popular movement draws on a wide range of evidence to give a bottom-up account of the growth, life and impact of early Methodism in the unlikelystronghold of Bedfordshire. The study digs beneath the seemingly steady advance portrayed by official membership statistics to uncover a much more unstable and rapidly changing picture in which different generations and social groups appropriated the religious structures of the movement as vehicles to express a wide variety of aspirations and grievances.
