Annotated Bibliography Sample: Methodist Denomination: Their American Beginnings John Doe HIUS 530: American Christian Heritage June 17, 2018 Project Overview The research paper will focus on investigating the establishment of the Methodist denomination in America. It will begin with a brief overview of the beginnings of the Methodist movement in Great Britain by the Wesleys and its eventual immigration to the American Colonies by individuals like Philip Embury, Francis Asbury, and Richard Strawbridge in the late 1700s. This will expand into a discussion of the initial mission’s outreach of the denomination in America and the formation of the Methodist Episcopal Church of America. Then, the relevant aspects of the Methodist’s expansion due to the First and Second Great Awakenings will be discussed and examined. Also included in the research, as appropriate, will be the development of the circuit riders, camp meetings, and relevant doctrines. Anticipated Thesis Statement The modern Methodist denomination had its humble beginnings at the University of Oxford in Britain during the middle of the 18th Century, and it would make its way to the American Colonies where, due to the First and Second Great Awakenings, it became the largest denomination in the United States by the early 1800s.   Bibliography Bangs, Nathan. History of the Methodist Episcopal Church from its Origin in 1776 to the General Conference of 1840. 4 Vols. New York: T. Mason and G. Lane, 1839–42. Nathan Bangs was a Methodist Pastor, theologian, book agent, and magazine editor. He produced an authoritative scholarly historical anthology on Methodism and the Methodist Episcopal Church which is relevant to this research. Many scholars consider this a primary document due to the number of British and American conference records, officially reported statistics, works of Wesley, pronouncements, and reports from bishops that it contains. The first two volumes of this multivolume work will be used for this research. They contain the history of the denomination from 1776 to 1816. He begins by chronicling the establishment of the New World at a high level and the progression of religious ideals throughout that time. He then incorporated the beginning and rise of Methodism in England by Wesley and its missionary work to the American colonies. This content is followed by the growth of this missions work and its development into a national denomination in America after its explosive growth after the Second Great Wakening. Bangs also publishes several of the letters and correspondence from Francis Asbury, as he and Richard Wright, established the church including their development of the church discipline under the Methodist religion and standards set by Wesley. Throughout the books, Bangs provides statistical information concerning the number of people in the denomination each year through 1840. This information will be used to corroborate the growth of the church during its early years.
