There is no question that women preachers helped to make the evangelical revival of the eighteenth century a powerful religious movement of enduring significance. This book is an effort to rediscover the lost history of the early women preachers of Methodism and their relationship to its primary leader, John Wesley. Chilcote reconstructs the portraits of over one hundred fascinating women, including Sarah Crosby, Mary Bosanquet, and Sarah Mallet, in a highly readable narrative interweaving biographical, historical, and theological concerns.
