Under asbury's leadership, this budding church blossomed, and within thirty y ears it surpassed all others as the largest denomination in America. This bicentennial volume, based on Asbury's journal, recounts the fascinating story of the doggedly determined itinerant bishop who oversaw this most successful missionary outreac h program in the history of American Christianity.
