Did you know:
That the Methodist movement started in England, then became one of the most popular denominations in America?
That Francis Asbury, one of the first bishops of the Methodist Church, rode by carriage and horseback thousands of miles through North Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky to preach in fields, taverns, and homes, to thousands of people?
That men from Alamance County, North Carolina, fought the British in the Battle of Alamance six years before the battles of Lexington and Concord?
That one of the first congregations was Salem Church in Haw River, NC. That congregation has worshipped in the same place since 1770?
These and many other interesting facts are found in my new book, “I Long To Be Lost and Swallowed up in God, A Short History of the Methodist Church in America, North carolina, and Alamance County”.
A well-told, well-paced thriller of treachery and remembrance harking back to the grim final years of WWII Germany.
