The Works of John Wesley Volume 27

Letters III (1756-1765)
$53.99
($59.99)

The third of seven volumes of John Wesley's correspondence, this volume is devoted to Wesley's letters written from 1756 to 1765.

Although many of the letters of John Wesley are of value as literature-especially as crisp statements of his views or desires with little attempt at embellishment-their major importance is as a revelation of him as a man and of the people and events of his day, especially those linked with the Methodist movement. They furnish us, in fact, with a portrait through 70 years that is both more revealing in detail and fuller in coverage than any other source.

The correspondence presented illuminates critical developments in the Wesleyan movement in the period between 1756 and 1765, including very significant rifts between John Wesley and his brother Charles and between John Wesley and his wife Mary, Wesley's attempts to deal with radical enthusiasts and separatists (such as Thomas Maxfield) within the Methodist movement, his relationship to Greek Orthodox leader Gerasimos (Erasmus) Avlonites, and Wesley's activities related to the Seven Years War.
