Methodism in the American Forest

Russell E. Richey

  • Recognizes a threefold pattern in the Methodist movement's engagement with the ever-moving American frontier as wilderness, as shady grove, and as garden
  • Shows that the camp meetings that Methodism made their own in the early nineteenth century metastasized into five different forms as the church settled into towns and cities
  • Explores the possibilities in Methodist camp meeting and forest ministries for a fuller articulation of doctrine, specifically of a doctrine of God
