This chapter considers Wesley as the powerful and successful preacher he clearly was. Contemporary sources are cited and analysed, together with entries from Wesley's copious and largely unpublished Journal. The open‐air preaching is examined, and what can be observed of Wesley's style is set in the context of the eighteenth‐century sermon genres.
