The Episcopacy in American Methodism (Paperback)James E. Kirby (author)
- Not available
The Episcopacy in American Methodism briefly examines the origins of the episcopal office in early Methodism, but the central focus is on its form, practice, and evolution in America. The volume is primarily about the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, although it acknowledges other relevant movements in Methodist history in America. The narrative continues to the present and outlines the implications of changes which have taken place as the Methodist church has moved from an itinerant, general superintendency to diocesan episcopacy with leaders no longer elected to the office by their peers.
