The Global Impact is divided into three parts: the first contains four essays that deal with theoretical issues concerning overseas missionary work, the second contains fifteen essays that deal with the Wesleyan influence on specific nations or regions of the world; and the third has only two essays and they deal, respectively, with possible ways in which to extend Wesleyan traditions in Latin America and with the resources for further research in Methodist history located at the John Rylands University Library of Manchester
Major thematic areas covered include the relationship of Pauline missions to parachurch missions; Wesleyan missionary theology in the works of Richard Watson; the Catholic and Protestant, but predominantly missionary, roots of Latin American Methodism; the Methodist leanings of some African Initiated Churches; and, finally, a discussion of Wesley's works in Latin America and the Methodist Archives and Research Centre at the John Rylands University Library of Manchester
. Church historians should be delighted with the review of dates, names, and foreign and indigenous missionaries in Korea, Japan, and Australia.
John Rylands University Library of Manchester
