John and Charles Wesley



" important ecumenical series..."Methodist RecorderJohn and Charles Wesley: Selected Prayers, Hymns, Journal Notes, Sermons, Letters and Treatisesedited with an introduction by Frank Whaling,preface by Albert Outler "... I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for my salvation; and an assurance was given me that he had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death." John Wesley (1703-1791)John and Charles Wesley were the leaders of the Methodist revival that swept early eighteenth-century England and resulted in the founding of what was destined to become a major force in the history of Christianity. In this volume, the works ofthe two men who shared a spiritual as well as a natural brotherhood are considered. From John's early period are taken his Forms of Prayer, Scheme of Self-Examination, and translations of German hymns. His mature spirituality is revealed in selectionsfrom his Journal, Rules for Methodist Societies, the Plain Account of Genuine Christianity, the Covenant Service of 1780, selected letters, and the classic treatment of the fundamental theme of his life, A Plain Account of Christian Perfection. Together with a selection of Charles's hymns, these works reveal a spirituality that synthesized into a unique "Wesleyan" blend elements from the Church Fathers, Catholic mystics, and Protestant Reformers. In so doing, explains Frank Whaling in his introduction to this book, the Wesleys have given us a vision of God that is a gift "so far mainly appropriated by the people called Methodists, but available in essence to all...."
