Wesley and the Wesleyans by John Kent( Book )

18 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wesley and the Wesleyans challenges the cherished myth that at the moment when the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution were threatening the soul of eighteenth-century England, an evangelical revival - led by the Wesleys - saved it. It will interest anyone concerned with the history of Methodism and the Church of England, the Evangelical tradition, and eighteenth-century religious thought and experience." "The book starts from the assumption that there was no large-scale religious revival during the eighteenth century. Instead, the role of what is called 'primary religion' - the normal human search for ways of drawing supernatural power into the private life of the individual - is analysed in terms of the emergence of the Wesleyan societies from the Church of England. The Wesleys' achievements are reassessed, there is fresh, unsentimental description of the role of women in the movement, and an unexpectedly sympathetic picture emerges of Hanoverian Anglicanism."--Jacket

William Temple : church, state, and society in Britain, 1880-1950 by John Kent( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Temple (1881-1944) was the outstanding British religious leader of the twentieth century. He believed that the 'modern state' was incomplete without a modern Christian church, which should set the moral and political tone of the community. His political and religious best seller, Christianity and Social Order, which was published as a Penguin Special in 1942, was one of the sources of the wide support for the British welfare state of the 1950s. Temple was the most successful and controversial of British 'priests in politics' because as an Archbishop he combined the idea of national unity rooted in a common set of religious/moral values with a constant demand for political change in the direction of greater social equality. He thus combined conservative and radical impulses to a remarkable degree. This is a study of Temple's public life and policy in Britain, and of his part in the movement to unite the world's Protestant churches

"Homestretch documents the mutual rehabilitation of outcast horses and prisoners. When top-pedigree racehorses fail to earn, they face slaughter or punishing two-bit racing circuits. Now, a few progressive prison farms are pairing rescued thorobreds with jail-hardened men. The transformations in both the horses and prisoners challenge stereotypes and, for some, offer hopes of redemption." --

After the first forty or so years of the 19th century, Victorian Christianity emerged as a response to new power, new wealth, new freedom and fresh knowledge. The Victorian middle class moved from a mood of revolutionary aggressiveness to that of reforming conservatism. Return to Christianity became part of the system, but this Christianity dealt with conflict between Evangelical churches and Anglo Catholic churches
