Show Summary Details


This chapter sets out the case for considering Wesley as much more than the ‘sweet singer’ of early Methodism. It sets his life within its context, and shows how his influence and leadership abilities helped to shape the new Methodist movement. A brief but thorough summary of his life, and of his sometimes troubled relationship with his brother, is set out.

Keywords: life; sermons; early Methodism; evangelical conversion; Charles Wesley
