"Dr. Hammond has here made a contribution which cannot fail to lead to a better understanding and a higher appreciation of the noble men who laid the foundations on which we are now building, and sacrificed for the principles which they held sacred-principles which must guide and inspire us."--Frederick T. Keeney, from the IntroductionSpanning the first two hundred years of the Methodist Episcopal Church, this fascinating volume explores the trials and triumphs of the church, with a particular emphasis on its role in Georgia.Part one, "A Brief History of the Two Georgia Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church," covers topics including religious life in the colony of Georgia, Methodist pioneers in Georgia, and the expansion of state and church. Part two, "A Summary of the Causes of Major Methodist Divisions in the United States and of the Problems Confronting Methodist Union," continues with an examination of the reorganization of the church in Georgia, a new generation of Methodist pioneers, and even the church's future.Originally published in 1935, The Methodist Episcopal Church in Georgia today remains a valuable historical reference. It also serves as an interesting account of one man's thoughts on the church's future, which, through the benefit of hindsight, may be checked for their accuracy.
