Full Product Description

Wesley by Jason E Vickers offers an account for students of John Wesley, who is arguably one of the most significant religious figures in eighteenth century England. As many know who have or are studying the life of john Wesley will know there are many questions and challenges to the study of him. In the book, author Jason Vickers, who is a Associate Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies examines many complex questions, such as –

Was Wesley a modern rationalist obsessed with the epistemology of religious belief or a late medieval style thinker who believed in demonic possession and supernatural healing?

Was Wesley primarily a pragmatic evangelist or a serious theologian committed to the long-haul work of catechesis, initiation, and formation?

Was Wesley a conservative, high church Tory or a revolutionary proto-democrat or even proto-Marxist politically?

Was Wesley most deeply formed by Eastern Orthodoxy, German Pietism, or his own native Anglicanism?

Finally, was a particular conception of the relationship between faith and works or a robust Trinitarian view of the Christian life the orienting concern of Wesley’s theological vision?

Spreading the Gospel: Methodism and the Evangelical Revival
Keeping to the Church: The Stabilization of English Society
Honouring the King: The Politics of Divine Right
Loving God: A Theology of Joyful Obedience
