Synopsis

A weekly 'class meeting' among Methodists in early 19th-century New York formed the basis for growth and unity in the small Christian sect. Author Rev. Dr. Philip F. Hardt describes these meetings as a means to close personal relationships among class members. They also provided a place in which lay leadership could emerge and monitor behavior among members. Hardt connects the decline in Methodist membership over the years with the dissolution of the weekly meeting. This book advocates a return to the meetings as a means to increase church membership. It is Rev. Hardt's belief that a weekly meeting can revitalize the church's efforts to initiate people into the faith and assimilate them into the body of Christ.

Rev. Dr. Philip F. Hardt is Adjunct Professor of Theology at Fordham College in New York City and Adjunct Professor of Methodist Studies at New Brunswick Theological Seminary. He holds a Ph.D. degree in Historical Theology from Fordham University.
