I Can Be Wesley's Kind of Methodist Feb 16, 2006
Or, rather, I want to try. It struck me, as I read, how far we have strayed. I have come to the Methodist church after growing up Baptist, and despite my misgivings about some of it's practices orginally, I find myself in love with the dream of Wesley. This book helped me see some of his vision without getting overly deep (er, over my head, so to speak). At times, it feels rather like reading a book report. I found myself wanting to skim over some of the dryer parts. But, it was a worthy read, and I took some good notes for future study.
