Item description for The Heart of John Wesley's Journal by John Wesley & Percy L. Parker...

Hendrickson Classic Biographies presents a one-volume abridgement of Wesley's multi-volume journals. The Heart of John Wesley's Journal presents a remarkable life, recorded and examined in real time by Wesley himself.

Spanning some fifty-five years, John Wesley's journals recorded his daily experiences in studying, teaching, preaching, and traveling the throughout England and then America in the eighteenth century. These selections present an engrossing portrait of Wesley during the course of his travels and evangelistic activities, illuminating the preacher's views and opinions on a host of contemporary matters. Begun as a public vindication of his early spiritual and pastoral work in Oxford and America, Wesley's journal became a means of keeping far-flung outposts of Methodism in touch with one another, a device for administering encouragement and rebukes, and a textbook of the experiential religion Wesley spent his life proclaiming. Wesley's eclectic interests and passion for rational analysis also make his journal a rich source for any reader interested in observing the conditions and values of society--particularly those of the lower classes--through the eyes of a well-educated and intelligent gentleman of the time.

More About John Wesley & Percy L. Parker

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.
