Annotation

The novel is about how one group of Methodists come to themselves lead more Christian lives and their influence on the area where they live. While most of the book is on the developments within the group of Methodists, it ends with a brief presentation of the eutopia that is coming into being with pubs closed and jails no longer full. The book is dedicated to Rev. Hugh Price Hughes (1847-1902), the founder of The Methodist Times and the Forward Movement in the Methodist Church, a movement to make the church more socially relevant. See also 1894 Lucas.

Author Note

The author (1843-1917) was born in Scotland and moved to Australia in 1877. Both the Bodleian Library and the British Library have the middle name as Prestwood, but I follow the advice of Bill Metcalf, who researched the question.
