United Methodist History and Theology

The United Methodist Church represents many distinctive historical and theological currents. This course will trace United Methodism’s historical and theological growth from the Wesleys to the late 20th century. Attention will be paid in the course to United Methodism’s roots in the theology of John Wesley. However, the course will also focus on the denomination’s growth from a series of predominantly American movements into a global church.

 

This syllabus was created for the Young Scholars in American Religion program.
