Book Overview

In his Journal, John Wesley gives his readers a vivid picture of his life in eighteenth-century Britain and America. Wesley's account, originally written in code and later published in instalments, records the journeys of the man who regarded the world as his parish. Covering fifty-six years of his life, the Journal chronicles his controversial open-air preaching, his inner doubts and conflicts, his journeys on horseback and by ship, and his encounters...

Completely Engrossing! Shockingly Honest & Utterly Real!

John Wesley endured much opposition and persecution to his message of salvation and love through Jesus Christ. His journal reveals a very mortal but spiritual giant of a man. I love this book and will treasure it always. It is one of the best investments I ever made in a Christian or secular book! Beautiful and truly remarkable!

Reflections on a Man of Depth Who Made a Difference

Wesley was a passionate man, highly emotional. All you have to do is read the reflective writings in this book to see for yourself. At the same time, he was scholarly, analytical, logical. Wesley was deeply spiritual. In sum, he was multidimensional. Fortunately we get to share some of the difficulty he encountered as we read what he went through at various stages of his life. He agonized over a woman, seeking God's will on the matter. Modern writers would call him a "hopeless romantic." He wrote, "My heart was with Miss Sophy all the time. I longed to see her, were it but for a moment."Wesley's personal library must have been extensive because in his will, which is included in this book, there are numerous references to books. The man traveled extensively as one on a mission from God. Many lives were positively influenced by this man of God. His legacy remains in books such as this one. For that we can thank God.
