Description


A uniquely engaging, informative and inspirational account of John Wesley's life.

"A man whose eloquence and logical acuteness might have made him eminent in literature, whose genius for government was not inferior to that of Richelieu, and who devoted all his powers in defiance to what he sincerely considered as the highest good of his species." -- Macaulay

"The greatest force of the eighteenth century in England ... No single figure influenced so many minds, no single voice touched so many hearts." -- Augustine Birrell

"No book is so exact and vivid a description of the eighteenth century in England as Wesley's Journal." -- Augustine Birrell


The Heart of John Wesley's Journal is a uniquely engaging, informative and inspirational account of the life and thoughts of one of the most influential Christians--John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. The complete journal contains detailed daily records over fifty-five years. These carefully chosen journal passages provide a unique glimpse into Wesley's spiritual journey and his contribution to Christianity in Britain and the United States.

Wesley's Journal is a testament to the transforming power of faith on one man's life and on a society. The entries are raw, honest, and at times profoundly moving. Wesley confronted his own doubts and struggles but remained steadfast in his pursuit of a deeper knowledge of God. We see a man of immense energy expressing his faith by incessantly crisscrossing the British Isles, preaching several times a day, writing extensively, engaging with all social classes, and giving away over 90% of his income. In all this, he ensured he did not harm his health-preaching to 30,000 in the open air in his seventies and remaining vigorous into his eighties.

Wesley's influence extended far beyond the realm of religion. He opposed slavery and cruelty to animals while promoting women's equality, the reduction of poverty and inequality, and healthy living - writing Primitiv Physik. a best-selling lay medical text.

This classic is for anyone interested in eighteenth-century England or seeking inspiration and guidance on their own spiritual journey.

This edition contains 371 subheadings in the table of contents so the reader can quickly find any particular section of interest.
