Reviews
Review Quotes
Lloyd gives a detailed and complex account of the nineteenth century, successfully combining theory and specific narrative ... each chapter interweaves narrative and lively detail with analysis and theoretical reflection ... this is an exciting book, readable as well as scholarly ... the theoretical analysis, while setting a standard, also raises questions ... which should inspire others to continue exploration.Margaret Jones, Wesley and Methodist Studies, 4 2012
