John Wesley (1703 1791), Anglican priest, theologian, and church reformer, and his brother, Charles Wesley (1707 1788), one of the greatest hymn writers of all time, co-founded Methodism, a major movement of Christian renewal. Their vision of Christian discipleship included important spiritual discoveries that fueled the revival of the eighteenth-century Church of England. Their holistic theology/spirituality affords guidance for the contemporary seeker after God who yearns for greater meaning and purpose in life.
This unique bifocal presentation of the work of these two amazing brothers brings together some of the most essential material from the large corpus of their work. While John articulated his vision of Christianity primarily through sermons, journals, and theological treatises in over two hundred and fifty publications, Charles expressed his theology in lyrical form through the medium of the hymn, producing some nine thousand hymns and sacred poems in his lifetime.
