"This study of the backgrounds of Methodist enthusiasm is offered as an essay toward the better understanding of the Wesleyan movement...there are good reasons why enthusiasm offers a clue to the solution of certain difficulties in the history of Methodism...Only an understanding of the connotations of 'enthusiasm' in the minds of seventeenth and eighteenth century Englishmen will explain much of the opposition to the Wesleyan Revival." - from the Introduction.
