More About A. C. Outler & John Wesley

John Wesley John Wesley (1703-1791) 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 "HolyClub," the second while Wesley was parish priest in Savannah, Georgia, and the third in London after Wesley's 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.Wesley's 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.

John Wesley was born in 1703 and died in 1791.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Wesley (Library of Protestant Thought)?

A Must Have For Studying Wesleyan Theology  Dec 25, 2006
For those of us who follow in the footsteps of John Wesley in our theological heritage (mine being Arminian), I have grown to love the works of John Wesley. Sadly, much of what comes from the United Methodist Church here in the United States is liberal and very bias against John Wesley. Too often liberal Methodist try to either misrepresent the teachings of Wesley or they deny what he taught such as inerrancy.

That is why you need this book. While this book is a collection of the writings and teachings of Wesley, the book itself is a very indepth analysis of Wesley's teachings. In the book you will not only see his evangelical teachings such as justification by faith but also his Arminian teachings as well against the Calvinist of his day. Wesley's arguments can still be used today against Calvinism.

My only reason for not giving this a five star rating was that a short work such as this can-not cover John Wesley or his teachings. While this work tries to do so, it simply is not a full view of what Arminians, Wesleyans, or John Wesley himself truly believe. However, this is still a must read for every serious theological student.
Excellent Source book on John Wesley  Feb 20, 2006
This book is very readable and provides great insight into the life and thought of the founder of Methodism, John Wesley. The editor does an excellent job with introductions and footnotes. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
nice collection  Jan 11, 2005
This is a good collection of Wesley passages into nice categories. The passages chosen are from a wide range of sources and of time periods in Wesley's life. However, the book is 98% Wesley. The editors let Wesley speak for himself on lots of issues. While this is nice to a certain extent, some direction following each passage would've been good. It's nice to have some analysis with this kind of work. At the end, there's a handy reference of the passages used, and at the end of every chapter (category), there's a list of supplementary resources if you're interested in reading more. I'd highly recommend this book. Some very interesting and worthwhile reading here.
Immpeccable scholarly material  Apr 4, 2000
Outler has a thorough knowledge of Wesley's life, teachings, and impact. He does more than present a summary of that, but he gives insight as well. One of the greatest is of Wesley's grasp of both Protestant and Catholic theologies, that creates something new (or old, i.e. in the 'primitive' church).
