He stands as the preeminent evangelist of Georgian England. No other man had such a profound impact on the world of his day - and on ours. In an era when high matters of state were in contention (the Seven Years' war, the American Revolution, the French Revolution, the rise of Napoleon, etc.) God sent this man into the fields to affect the eternal lives of common laborers and housewives, scullery maids and archbishops, miners and aristocrats. Persecuted and in danger of his life many times, Wesley insisted on proclaiming the truth of God's love and grace to fallen man, whether or not the doors of the Established Church were shut against him. The Methodists who loved him so deeply were melded into a cohesive force by the Wesleyan Revival, and the fire of the holy Spirit leaped the Atlantic to blaze in the heart of a new nation. Here is the true story of God's adventurer in the 18th Century. Here is a look into the controversies that swirled around Wesley as preacher and theologian, missionary and organizer, and observations on his amazing capabilities as an administrator. Here, too, is a portrait of him as a courageous author and debater who never stooped to bitterness or vindictiveness.
