John Wesley (17031791) was an eighteenth century Anglican clergyman and Christian theologian who was the founder of the Methodist movement. Methodism had three rises, the first at Oxford University with the founding of the so-called Holy Club, the second while Wesley was parish priest in Savannah, Georgia, and the third in London after Wesleys return to England. The movement took form from its third rise in the early 1740s when Wesley, along with others, began itinerant field preaching and the subsequently founded religious societies for the formation of believers. This was the first widely successful evangelical movement in Britain. Wesleys Methodist Connexion included societies throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland before spreading to other parts of the English-speaking world and beyond. He divided his religious societies further into classes and bands for intensive accountability and religious instruction. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

  • By Calebant on 1 November 2016

    The content is truly remarkable, enjoyable and profitable. The editor has naturally left out much that was significant such as the event on 1st January 1739, which George Whitfield, I am told, referred to as "our pentecost". After which the power was switched on (the Holy Spirit moved) and John Wesley had an incalculably large impact preaching to crowds of many thousands - hundreds of whom had dramatic life-changing (and nation changing) conversions. The editor has done what he thought best to produce a volume of this manageale size and it is well worth the read: it also paints fascinating pictures of life across the social spectrum in the 18th century. It was a daily journal after all.

    It has been good to travel with John on his travels preaching and teaching in the British Isles and abroad. Wesley's prison ministry, especially in Marshalsea was of particular interest and overall I was well pleased with my purchase which I am sure I will return to often

    This is a great read. Wesley writes very accessibly, considering the language in common useage then. He is often dryly humourous, referring regularly to the frequent bans imposed on him by churches where he had preached and presumably upset the congregation. He comes across as someone it would have been fascinating to know and he certainly has lessons for Christian today about Christ's message and parts of the established church. Recommended

    This is a marvellous encouragement to any Christian and I would say a must read. I can’t understand why I haven’t come across it before. May be I wasn’t ready for it. John Wesley is surely one of the great heroes of our time, a fact that is recognised by people of the world as well as the kingdom. The so-called hard men of today would do well to read this and discover that they are not so hard after all.

    This journal gives a good insight into John Wesleys thinking of how to live the Christian Life. Very appropriate for this day and age.A good read for anyone wanting to know how to grow in the Christian Faith.

  • By D. B. Prentice on 27 July 2013

    From the wealth of writings left by John Wesley, you see a man wholly committed to Jesus Christ his personal Lord and Saviour who he had the earnest desire to share with others. He did not water down the Scriptures of the Holy Bible to be politically correct to the day in which he lived. Travel was teadiously by horse, but the sheer amount of horse miles he clocked up was absolutely amazing. In 21st Britain he would be in dire trouble with his adamant view of the correctness of the Bible and would fall foul of those watering it down and adapting it to mean what ever life style present man wants!

    Very interesting preamble by contemporaries and modern thinkers.A must for Methodist worshippers to see how our greatest preacher spent his days. .

    What an amazing man, the journals are very interesting, I am only a third of the way through them, I hadn't realised he had travelled to America, upset all the locals, was brought before the magistrates more than once and escaped back to England!! Even in England he was accused of causing riots whenever he preached, he was banned from countless church's. I am finding some of it amusing, although I don't suppose he did at the time.
