Henry Foxall: Methodist, Industrialist, American, by Jane B. Donovan

A tale of one man’s impact on both a church and state in a country that enshrines their separation.

Henry Foxall set the tone for subsequent American Methodists: adapters, entrepreneurs, and leaders. He was the quintessential catalyst for the transformation of a Spirit-filled movement into a church denomination and a young nation into an economic powerhouse. Foxall was a friend to Bishop Francis Asbury, a generous contributor to the Methodist enterprise, and a successful business person. This biography of Henry Foxall (1758—1823), sheds light on second-generation Methodism.
