The Asbury Triptych Series is a trilogy about Francis Asbury, the British circuit-riding preacher who is the George Washington of American Christianity. The three-book novel sets in 18th-century England and America. The opening book, Black Country, delivers what many of Francis Asbury’s biographers have left out for nearly two centuries, his first twenty-six years in the west Midlands of England and his first six years as a preacher traveling the English countryside. The second book, Beggar Bishop, brings to life the challenging trials and near-death experiences of the young preacher from the iron-working industry as he attempts to forge a church in an American wilderness embroiled in the Revolutionary War with his country of birth. In the climactic third book, Ordination, Francis Asbury continues to struggle with the colonial residents at war with England; he also wrestles with saving all he has labored for from destruction by a dissentious rebel. To Francis Asbury and others, his success or failure as an individual rides on the outcome of this conflict.
