Product Description

A unique pictorial art history book that describes John Wesley’s legacy through the many portraits and sculptures that attempt his exact likeness, in life and in death.

Faces are more than a montage of organs that see, breathe, speak, hear, eat, sing, smell, and yell.  The slightest nuance in expressions can provide evidence of character that is as telling as a report card or a police blotter, and portraits of individuals can be equally revealing of the person’s inner nature. Richard P. Heitzenrater, the top John Wesley scholar in the world, provides a commentary and interpretation of historical circumstances surrounding more than 50 full-color portraits and sculptures of the father of Methodism in An Exact Likeness. You may just learn more about Wesley in this unique art history book than what you can find in a conventional biography.
