Item description for Wesley and Sanctification by Harald Lindstrom...
Overview A classic summary of the theology of John Wesley. The late Dr. Timothy L. Smith of Johns Hopkins University called this "the most accurate and comprehensive description we have of the theology of the founder of Methodism." American church historians have been accused of allowing the Holiness Revival to color their assessment of Wesley. Lindstrom brings none of that bias to the task, yet he concludes that John Wesley's theology was clearly evangelical. Many colleges and seminaries use this as their core textbook in Wesley studies. Lucid and carefully researched, it has earned a place of high regard among the modern texts on historical theology.
Publishers Description Harald Lindstrom's classic study of John Wesley's doctrine of sanctification remains perhaps the most accurate and comprehensive description we have of the theology of the founder of Methodism. Its accuracy stems from the fact that Lindstrom relied principally on Wesley's sermons to define his understanding of scriptural Christianity. Its comprehensiveness reflects the fact that John Wesley saw, and spent his lifetime explaining, that the promise of salvation was the central theme of biblical theology and that the experience of sanctifying grace was the essence of salvation.
