Publishers Description
JOHN WESLEY (1703-1791) is the chief architect and source of inspiration for the teaching commonly referred to as Christian Perfection. Yet the journey Wesley traveled in forming his views on perfect love is largely unknown and often misunderstood. In this second volume of a groundbreaking series, Olson leaves no stone unturned as he guides the reader along a path explaining how and why Wesley's most beloved doctrine took the shape it did. In this way the reader is offered surprising insights into Wesley's philosophy of discipleship and spiritual growth. All periods of Wesley's long and eventful career are covered, with special attention given to those factors which most influenced his own faith journey. The entire Wesley corpus is utilized: sermons, journals, letters, diaries, and other writings. A four gospel scheme organizes Wesley's doctrinal development for easy memorization and understanding. Numerous charts visually empower a fuller understanding of Wesley's theology of perfection. Several appendices offer a timeline and several historical studies on Wesley's faith journey and theological development. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Wesley's vision of Christian holiness, all will be challenged to reflect more deeply on the nature of Christian discipleship and what it means to be a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about John Wesley's Theology of Christian Perfection: Developments in Doctrine & Theological System (John Wesley Christian Perfection Library)?

A Must Read for Wesley Lovers  May 19, 2008
This is the most comprehensive and thorough study on Wesley's doctrinal development in print today. The first chapter walks through Wesley's early theology and shows why the storms at sea affected Wesley so deeply and led him down a path to do radical surgery on his theological system upon his return to England in 1738. Olson also explains why Wesley embraced a gospel of two works of grace following his Aldersgate conversion. The impact that Moravian stillness doctrine had on Wesley is thoroughly explored. There is a thorough study of Wesley's letters and his doctrine of sin. Many charts visually enhance the points being made. Wesley's views on perfection are also shown to shape his later eschatology (and visa versa). The third section penetrates in the underlying principles inherent in Wesley's theology on holiness. Plus, there are several appendices that offer incisive insights into aspects of Wesley's theology. This book is the most thorough read on Wesley that is available today. This is a must read for anyone wanting to grasp Wesley's doctrine of holiness and sanctification.
