    As valuable as this massive volume is, it provides relatively little attention to religion in general, even less attention to Christianity in particular, and has no specific concern with or focus on Methodism in any of its incarnations. These stories were printed on cheap "pulp" paper and featured reprints or rewrites of stories, largely in the Gothic thriller or Crime genre including the tales of Sweeney Todd and Varney the Vampire. InAmerican and Canadian railroads jointly established four standardized continental time zones that eliminated the need to adhere to local time, which varied from one town to another based on when the sun was at its highest point in the sky noon. While this will not take the place of a true subject index, readers will be able to use the electronic form of the volume to search for entries containing specific names or terms in which they may have an interest, for example, Francis Asbury, or Georgia Harkness, or apartheid, or prohibition, or lay representation, or ordination.

Ratcliff, a friend of many years and an erstwhile editorial colleague who now has the dubious privilege of serving as my editor, and Susan L.

    The spread of Methodism around the world through the activities and influence of missionaries from Britain and America can be seen to result in the emergence of autonomous Methodist churches in many countries, just as European and American colonialism ultimately led to the formation of numerous independent nation-states. The finer quality parchments are known as vellum and even in the modern age parchment has been called the "finest writing material ever devised" with even the most modern papers not reaching the quality of the finest vellum. It is virtually impossible to maintain a rigid separation between religious history and political, social, or cultural history, or between political or cultural history and scientific or technological achievements—or failures. The result was that the hardback outsold the paperback by a ratio of 54 to 1, and of those paperbacks sold, the majority were bought by 1 dealer hoping to get rich which he didn't. It is pages long but divided into the twelve books by categories such as; The Gods, Ceremonies, Omens, and other cultural aspects of Aztec people.

    The cost of each individual book in a large edition was lowered enormously, which in turn increased the distribution of books. Due to limitations of time and space, coverage of comparable decisions and actions taken by the governing bodies of other members of the worldwide Wesleyan and Methodist family of churches is necessarily much more selective. Part of Lane's success lie in his design and branding of the books in order to appeal to the mainstream market. These handwritten books were decorated in silver or even gold with striking colours and very detailed designs.
