Hugh Price Hughes, hailed by some as a second Wesley and by David Lloyd George as the greatest Welshman of his generation, was the most influential Methodist leader of his time. This scholarly biography discusses his significance as the primary inspiration of the 'Forward Movement', which sought to redirect Wesleyan Methodist theology towards the salvation of society as well as of individuals.The author, who is thoroughly familiar with recent writing on late nineteenth-century British Nonconformity, traces Hugh Price Hughes's career from his childhood in Wales and his conversion at the age of thirteen to his presidency of the Council of Evangelical Free Churches and the Wesleyan Methodist Church, analysing the origins and development of his ideas and his innovative methods of putting them into practice.
