7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged.

10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
In the study of history, knowing where something happened is almost as important as knowing what happened. Text can only go so far in providing a sense of the scope and sweep of historical events and movements. That is why this new resource will be so important to students of the Methodist movement. Methodism began in a particular place and time, and was shaped decisively by that social and physical context. As it spread out across the British Isles, North America, and eventually around the world, its beliefs and practices were inebitably shaped by those new contexts as well. This atlas tells the Methodist story, employing maps, pictures, charts, and other visual media to provide a compelling visual exploration of the rise and growth of the people called Methodists.
