English Historical Review

“In nine neatly-organized and compelling chapters . . . the author reveals how this compulsive diarist became the self-styled commander-in-chief of the Methodist movement only to find himself by 1750 consigned to the wilderness by colleagues who had become exasperated by his heretical views and his eye for the opposite sex . . . Geraint Tudur is a balanced and fair-minded chronicler, and his portrait of Harris, warts and all, deserves a wide readership. It also whets the appetite for a sequel.” –English Historical Review

Welsh History Review

“. . . the first significant attempt to interpret Harris’s career on the basis of his voluminous diaries . . . Tudur’s study of Howell Harris deserves to become the standard text on his life and on the early years of the Welsh Revival.” –Welsh History Review

Journal of Religious History

“. . . a thorough and scholarly volume . . . a praiseworthy volume, which will surely serve as the standard work on Harris’ early career for years to come.” –Journal of Religious History

Epworth Review

“. . . a lucid and scholarly account of this man’s extraordinary career . . .” –Western Mail

“Good books on the Welsh revival in English for unlettered Sassenachs are not easy to come by, so this study of Howell Harris by the Director of the Centre for the Advanced Study of Religion in Wales, which is a very good book indeed, deserves the warmest of welcomes . . . a splendid book.” –Epworth Review

“This volume is clearly and concisely written and, in spite of the mercurial figure at its centre and the abstruse theological issues at work, it is not without its lighter touches and will satisfy both lay reader and researcher.” –
