Paperback. Like New. The Explosion of growth in Methodism after the American Revolution was largely due to the massive efforts of Francis Asbury. Persecuted for his Loyalist sentiments, he nevertheless remained in America throughout that bloody conflict (when other English-born preachers fled) and earned the respect of Americans everywhere. Here was a man who allowed himself no more than four hours of sleep a night so that he had more time to do his Master's work and who willingly sold his shirt so poor circuit riders would be clothed. The frontier was no stranger to the hoofbeats of his horse as he swept from preaching point to preaching point, undeterred by snow, ice, rain or blistering sun.
