Great Biography of the Supreme Hymnist of Methodism Jul 23, 2003
There are probably very few Wesleyiana scholars in the past half century that can write with the authority of T. Crichton Mitchell on the life of Charles Wesley (or Charles' brother John, for that matter). I had the pleasure of studying under Dr. Mitchell in the late 1980's while he writing this book, and was afforded the opportunity to discuss the work at great length with the author several times. His desire was to make the life of Charles Wesley come alive, and to thus make that life story accessable to the average reader.
The writing style is exquisitely readable. One does not therefore have to be a scholar to appreciate the volume. The detail and quality of the work, however, also makes it a valuable resource to the serious student of Wesleyan and Methodist history. I highly encourage both the casual reader and the student to read this remarkable work by a man whose knowledge of all things Wesleyan is still respected several years after his going home to be with the Lord.
