Reviews - What do customers think about Wesley Country: A Pictorial History Based On John Wesley's Journal?
Wesleyan Pictorial History Jul 20, 2005
This book makes a nice coffee table piece. Very impressive drawings, although some are of questionable relevance to the text they are associated with. The historical value is quite sketchy but nevertheless accurate; as far as I can tell. Would make an excellent presentation gift to a departing pastor or other member of a church.
