...an important ecumenical series..." Methodist Recorder John and Charles Wesley: Selected Prayers, Hymns, Journal Notes, Sermons, Letters and Treatises edited with an introduction by Frank Whaling, preface by Albert Outler "...

Methodist Recorder John and Charles Wesley: Selected Prayers, Hymns, Journal Notes, Sermons, Letters and Treatises edited 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 of the 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 selections from 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....

    A good introduction to John's writings including A Plain Account of Christian Perfection. Also includes many of Charles' hymns. From John's writings... "The whole system of Christian duty is reducible to these five heads:" 1. The renouncing ourselves - If any man will come after me, let him renounce himself, and follow me. We are not our own. 2. Devoting ourselves to God - He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him that died for them. 3. Self-denial A good introduction to John's writings including A Plain Account of Christian Perfection. Also includes many of Charles' hymns. From John's writings... "The whole system of Christian duty is reducible to these five heads:" 1. The renouncing ourselves - If any man will come after me, let him renounce himself, and follow me. We are not our own. 2. Devoting ourselves to God - He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him that died for them. 3. Self-denial - "...whosover has determined to live no longer to the desires of men, but to the Will of God, will soon find that he cannot be true to his purpose without denying himself, and taking up his cross daily. He will daily feel some desire which this one principle of action, the will of God, does not require him to indulge. In this, therefore, he must either deny himself, or so far deny the faith. He will daily meet with some means of drawing nearer to God, which are unpleasing to flesh and blood. In this, therefore, he must either take up his cross, or so far renounce his Master." 4. Advances in mortification - I am crucified unto the world; I am dead with Christ; I live not, but Christ liveth in me. 5. "Christ liveth in me. This is the fulfilling of the law, the last stage of Christian holiness: This maketh the man of God perfect. He that being dead to the world is alive to God; the desire of whose soul is unto his name; who has given Him his whole heart; who delights in Him, and in nothing else but what tends to Him; who, for his sake, burns with love to all mankind; who neither thinks, speaks, nor acts, but to fulfill his will, is on the last round of the ladder to heaven: Grace hath had its full work upon his soul: The next step he takes is into glory."
