    Very impressive and comprehensive scholarship on Wesley's theology, bringing together much of the previous recent scholarship on the connections between Wesley's theology and that of the Eastern Fathers of the early Church. Highly recommended for anyone who would want to get their heads wrapped around the contours of Wesley's theology and its practical applications for today.

    Maddox is a Wesleyan scholar par excellence. I appreciate Maddox’s synthesis of Wesley, comparing his thinking in early years to the mature Wesley of later adulthood. Maddox gives preference to Wesley in later years; the reader can judge whether this is the best approach in evaluating one’s life’s work. The reading is dense - at times the liveliness and confrontational nature of Wesley seems missing. Nevertheless, the thoroughness of this analysis is unmatched.

The case for “responsible grace” as Wesley’s orienting concern is the thesis, and Maddox makes it convincingly.

    Maddox helps readers learn how much John Wesley's understanding of the Bible intersects with theological ideas held by the Early Church Fathers. A good correction to many contemporary Evangelical presuppositions.
