520    Church and Chapel in Industrializing Society: Anglican 
       Ministry and Methodism in Shropshire, 1760–1785 envelopes 
       a new and provocative revisionist history of Methodism and
       the Church of England in the eighteenth century, 
       challenging the Church’s perception as a varied body with 
       myriad obstacles which it dutifully and substantially 
       confronted (if not always successfully) through the 
       maintenance of an ecclesiastically and theologically 
       rooted pastoral ideal. This model was lived out ‘on the 
       ground’ by the parish clergy, many of whom were 
       demonstrably innovative and conscientious in fulfilling 
       their pastoral vocation vis-à-vis the new demands 
       presented by the social, ecclesiastical, political, and 
       economic forces of the day, not least of which was the 
       rise of industrialisation. Contrary to the effete 
       arguments of older cadre church historians, heavily 
       reliant on the nineteenth-century denominational histories
       and primarily the various forms of Methodism, this book 
       provides a thoroughly researched study of the ministry of 
       John William Fletcher, incumbent of the parish of Madeley 
       at the heart of the industrial revolution, whose own work 
       along with that of his Evangelically minded Anglican-
       Methodist colleagues found the Church of England 
       sufficiently strong and remarkably flexible enough to 
       rigorously and creatively do the work of the Church 
       alongside their non-Anglican Evangelical counterparts. 
       Despite the manifest challenges of industrializing society,
       residual dissent, and competition from the Church’s rivals
       , the Establishment was not incapable of competing in the 
       religious marketplace. 
520 1  «This book reassesses Fletcher and his ministry thoroughly
       and persuasively: any student of early Methodism needs to 
       read this for it articulates how 'Methodism' could operate
       in a local situation and can be put alongside other new 
       work, such as Russell Frazier's on Swiss theological 
       influences on Fletcher, and on Mary Bosanquet/Mrs 
       Fletcher.»  (Peter S. Forsaith, Wesley and Methodist 
       Studies Vol. 10, No. 1, 2018)
