Through a series of essays, The Global Impact of the Wesleyan Traditions and Their Related Movements documents the influence of Methodist missionaries on peoples and religions throughout the world. The text is divided into three parts: Part I includes four essays about basic missiological and methodological issues; Part II includes 15 essays that illuminate the global impact of the Wesleyan traditions and related movements on topics such as independent churches in Africa and the Hwa Nan College in China; and Part III describes the resources for researching and extending the global impact of traditions of Wesley's works, such as the Obras de Wesley (the Spanish version of Wesley's works) and the valuable collection of Wesleyana and Methodistica materials at the John Rylands University Library in Manchester, Great Britain.
Charles Yrigoyen, Jr. is general secretary for the General Commission on Archives and History with the United Methodist Church. He has taught on the subject of religion at both Albright College and Union Theological Seminary, and has authored and co-authored several publications, including John Wesley: Holiness of Heart and Life(1996).
