I notice in your 'Coming soon' category, 'Dictionary of Methodism', by John A Vickers. If you are interested in Methodism, I would like to recommend a very good biography by Roy Hattersly (Yes, THAT Roy Hattersly.) 'John Wesley, A Brand from the Burning'.

It has long interested me (as one early infected myself) how many stubborn, interesting and driven women start out as Methodists; Margaret Hilda and Hillary Clinton for example. Hardly surprising given the influence of the Wesleyan mother, Susanna.
