The relationship between John Wesley and George Whitefield has often been viewed as suffering from irreconcilable theological differences. Catholic Spirit: Wesley, Whitefield, and the Quest for Evangelical Unity in Eighteenth-Century British Methodism focuses on the key themes upon which both men agreed. It stresses the commonalties between the two leaders of British Methodism and illustrates the great lengths both went to in order to further the revival of the Christian religion in England and North America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Very well researched.... Researchers of Methodism, the Church of England in this period, and of the two preachers will find this volume to be valuable. * American Reference Books Annual *
In Catholic Spirit, James L. Schwenk provides a thoughtful and accessible reevaluation of the relationship between the two leading lights of eighteenth century British Methodism, John Wesley and George Whitefield.... This brief work offers some valuable insights for those interested in this significant period of early Methodism.... His account illuminates one example of a recurring theme in evangelical history that requires further analysis, perhaps using approaches from sociology and psychology: the tendency for a strong commitment to the notion of unity to be accompanied by extremely bitter divisions. * Wesley and Methodist Studies *
