Gwybodaeth Bellach:
• A guide to understanding some of the aspects of modern Wales which obviously differ from England and other countries, including the singing of ‘Bread of Heaven’ at international rugby matches, as the legacy of the communal hymn singing which emerged as part of the eighteenth-century revival.
• The only work in English to discuss in detail what sort of people were drawn to the early Welsh Methodist movement, in terms of social background, age and gender. This will give a broader readership access to what has been more frequently discussed through the medium of Welsh.
• The focus on the grass-roots membership – most studies of Methodism in both Wales and England have tended to concentrate on the development of the movement largely from the perspective of the leadership. Although the influence of the leaders (Daniel Rowland, Howel Harris and William Williams) will be considered, the main focus is on the members and their social and economic background.
• The focus on the internal life of the societies, which is often missing from studies of Methodism. The book includes a careful examination of the activities of the societies in an attempt to explain their appeal.
