Looks at the intersection of literacy and spirituality in early Methodist writers, especially women, in England.
Vicki Tolar Burton argues that John Wesley wanted to make ordinary Methodist men and women readers, writers, and public speakers because he understood the powerful role of language for spiritual formation. His understanding came from his own family and education, from his personal spiritual practices and experiences, and from the evidence he saw in the lives of his followers.
By examining the intersections of literacy, rhetoric, and spirituality as they occurred in early British Methodism - and by exploring the meaning of these practices for class and gender - the author provides a new understanding of the method of Methodism.
