Sparks of Grace

Sparks of Grace, is the first full-length study of Methodism in Asia. It has 209 pages, plus a select chronology, and a bibliography of more than 200 books, articles, resource items and internet material on Methodism (and more generally, Christianity) in Asia.

The book looks at the sources, human agents, structures and connections involved in the spread of Methodism in Asia. The first section considers Methodism as a historical movement with global implications, and examines its institutional impact on the societies of those Asian countries in which it established itself. The second section has individual chapters on Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Singapore, Malaysia, The Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan, with a section on China before the communist take-over, and other Methodist presences in Asia.

Author, Robbie B H Goh, is Deputy Head of the Department of English Language and Literature, National University of Singapore. The author of more than 50 scholarly books and articles is also a member of Cairnhill Methodist Church, and has been involved in youth and worship ministries and mission work.
