John Seybert and the Evangelical Heritage
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe Evangelical Association was a revival movement at the beginning of
the 19th century, which reached out to the large numbers of German-
Americans who had settled throughout the mid-Atlantic and
Midwestern states. Their founder, Jacob Albright (1758-1808), and his
colaborers developed indigenous and distinctive patterns of hymnody
and worship set in a German idiom. For three decades after Albright's
death, the Evangelicals were without a bishop until in 1839 a promising
young circuit preacher named John Seybert was made the first "constitutional"
bishop of the Evangelicals. This book traces the history and ministry of this founding father of what eventually became the United Methodist Church.
