"As pastor, bishop, president of the National Council of Churches, and leader in the World Council of Churches, Martin made a lasting mark on twentieth century Methodism, and indeed on global Christianity. He was the last surviving bishop of The Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and his death in 1984 marked the end of an era. Yet he carried into the living memory of today's United Methodist Church the grand old heritage of the "Southern" bishop: authoritative in leadership, vigorous in intellect, and deeply respectful of tradition." "Martin's story from rural childhood to global ecumenical leader illuminates and in many ways exemplifies the story of Methodism in the twentieth century. His life will be of interest not only to students of Methodist history and those whose lives were touched by his, but to all those who care about how Wesley's evangelical engagement with the world came to be embodied in its present forms."--BOOK JACKET.
