Conversations on Methodist History

We are privileged to interview some of the keenest minds in Methodist history in order to dig even deeper than the podcast. We will post the interviews on the regular feed but store them here on the website

1. Michael McKenzie

Our first interview takes us on a historical leap from 1703 to 1833. We are talking with Michael McKenzie, Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Keuka College, about his new book, A Country Strange and Far: The Methodist Church in the Pacific Northwest, 1834–1918. Our conversation will cover the details of the book and the struggles of the Methodist Church in the Pacific Northwest, as well as connect to the conversation about Epworth we had in Episode 27 and Samuel Wesley's struggles to connect to the wild and rugged Isle of Axholme.

2. Ryan Danker

In this episode, we talk with Dr. Ryan Danker about the Church of England during the reigns of Queen Anne and George I. This episode is longer than usual but the conversation is highly relevant to the History of Methodism. Ryan is the author and editor of many books including Wesley and the Anglicans. Ryan is also the Director of the John Wesley Institute in Washington D.C.
