Summary:
"The Wesleys and the Anglican Mission to Georgia examines the lives of five minister/missionaries in Georgia from 1735 to 1738 just before three of them became famous throughout the Atlantic world. Personal relationships shaped every facet of the Mission, while they used Biblical literature to frame and explain their experiences"-- Provided by publisher.
