He examines early nineteenth-century efforts to evangelize British North America and the revivalistic activities so important in the mid-nineteenth-century. He documents Methodists' missionary work, both overseas and in Canada among aboriginal peoples and immigrants. He analyses the Methodist contribution to Canadian education and the leadership the church provided for the expansion of the role of women in society. He also assesses the spiritual and social dimensions of evangelical religion in the personal lives of Methodists, addressing such social issues as prohibition, prostitution, the importance of the family, and changing attitudes toward children in Methodist doctrine and in Canada as a whole."--BOOK JACKET.
