ISBN: 9780958268226

Author: James Stuart    Publisher: Philip Garside Publishing Ltd

Dop June 2009, Auckland Softcover John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, was one of the best known figues of the 18th century. For 50 years he tirelessly rode the length of Britain preaching his message of 'plain truth for plain people'. He turned aside from a comfortable and well-provisioned life as a Fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford to live and work among the poor and needy. Wesley wanted Methodists to be people with warm hearts, catholic spirits, a whole gospel and an open mind. Drawing on the best of contemporary and historical scholarship, James Stuart traces the writers, theologians, people Wesley met and the key experiences that shaped Wesley's ideas. He then revisits the enduring themes and other principles of Wesley and the early Methodists, to see how they might affect our practice, inspire our theology and renew our lives today.
