Item description for The Works of John Wesley Volume 18: Journal and Diaries I (1735-1738) by Richard P. Heitzenrater & W. Reginald Ward...
Overview John Wesley's Journal is one of the most important sources of information about his life and thought. Now, in this first of seven journal volumes published in The Works of John Wesley collection, scholars have access to a critical edition of the Journal featuring annotations and commentary by two of the world's foremost Wesley authorities. Spanning three years in Wesley's life, this annotated Journal makes a major contribution to contemporary Wesleyan scholarship. Extract 1 contains Wesley's journal from the time of his embarking for Georgia (October 14, 1735) to the time of his return to London (February 1, 1737). Extract 2 covers Wesley's life from his return to London to his journey to Germany, to his return from Germany in August, 1738.
Publishers Description The Introduction to this edition discusses the nature of Wesley's Journal, places it in the context of autobiography as a genre, examines its construction, and discusses Wesley's frame of mind during its writings. One of the major functions of this scholarly edition is to reveal John Wesley "in the light of his involvement in the crowded forum of eighteenth century theological debate." Wesley's writings are saturated with references to Scripture, the Latin and Greek classics, the early Church Fathers, his theological predecessors, English poets and playwrights, and those "natural philosophers" exploring the wonder of God in creation.
