Beginning on 6 October 2015 I will begin publishing a series of articles about Dr. La Roy Sunderland (1802-1885). These articles will be issued in a newsletter that is a companion to this website, Methodistica Journal. Please click on the link in this post or on the subscribe link under the header Newsletter on the sidebar.
La Roy Sunderland has long been a subject of interest to me. I have promised to write a biography of this man who began his adult life as a Methodist preacher in New England, became an anti-slavery activist, and then a physician and scientist of the soul. These articles are a warm-up to my finally writing the book.
A few words about the articles and the new Methodistica Journal: The articles are all designed to be appropriate for anyone interested in history, biography, and Methodism. They will be short — approximately 600-700 words each. They could be used as supplements to classroom studies at a variety of levels and as material for Christian education in local churches. The newsletter will be published weekly and is devoted to similar subject-matter as this website; but in greater depth.
In all, there will be eleven weekly articles on La Roy Sunderland. The last of these will be published on the 130th anniversary of his death.
