The Rev. John Wesley (1703-1791), the founder of the Methodist Church, was an enthusiastic preacher for the Lord, a prolific writer, and a prestigious Oxford scholar. For over two centuries, his treasured sermons have provided keen insight, deep analysis, and provocative applications of the great truths of the faith for minister and layperson alike. Utilizing both primary and secondary works, John Wesley's 52 Standard Sermons: An Annotated Summary presents a concise yet useful report on each of his messages. Additionally, other pertinent historical and theological information on Wesley's life, culture, intrinsic/extrinsic influences, his understanding of Christianity, and his powerful exhortations of spiritual (re)formation and public philanthropy are presented--all with the goals of helping readers understand Wesley's call for Christian Perfection, developing proficient evangelism, and pursuing personal sanctification and piety. For pastors, for theologians, and for everyday Christians, this book is a handy resource for understanding Wesley, his doctrine, and, moreover, it provides insight into the great biblical truths that Wesley considered relevant for following Christ's great commandments of loving God and one's neighbor. ""I was thrilled to hear that Dr. Knox was publishing these annotated sermons. Any student of John Wesley knows that these sermons give enormous insights into Wesley's thought process as well as his passionate commitment to Christ. Dr. Knox presents an insightful overview of Wesley's life that includes watershed events that shaped Wesley's thinking. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to understand John Wesley at a deeper level. --Mark M. Goodwin, Pastor, Portland First Church of the Nazarene, Portland, OR ""John Knox is a scholar incapable of writing a dull sentence, having the knack of finding just the right phrase from Wesley's sermons to catch us up afresh in Wesley's passion for the faith. Along with a perceptive biographical introduction, this book will entertain, educate, and challenge a new generation of readers to plunge into Wesley's sermons for themselves."" --Roger J. Newell, Professor of Religious Studies, George Fox University John S. Knox is an online instructor with Liberty University's School of Divinity and the Scholar-in-Residence at The Biblical Studies Center in Boise, Idaho. He has taught Bible, History, and Religion for years at several Christian universities in the United States. He lives in Idaho with his wife, Brenda, and their two sons, Jacob and Joseph. He is the author of The Letter of Alon (CrossLink, 2013) and Sacro-Egoism (Wipf & Stock, 2016).

John Knox

Scottish theologian and leader of the Reformation in Scotland, John Knox was born near Haddington in Lothian. After attending university, probably at St. Andrews, Knox returned to Haddington, where he entered the Catholic priesthood in about 1540. He also became tutor to the sons of several influential families with political ties to Protestant reformers. Knox's sympathies for Reformation doctrines soon were revealed by his support of George Wishart, a Scottish Reformer who was put to death for heresy in 1546. During the years of political and religious turmoil in Scotland, Knox was captured by French forces in 1547 and held prisoner until 1549. From this experience, he emerged as the voice of the Scottish Reformation, convinced of his calling to defeat the Catholic church, which he now termed "the synagogue of Satan." After his release from prison, he worked with the Protestant regency ruling for Edward IV in England and helped shape The Book of Common Prayer. When the Catholic Mary Tudor came to the English throne in 1553, Knox left England and eventually moved to Geneva, where his strong Presbyterian beliefs were finally forged from the teachings of John Calvin. In Calvin's "Bible Commonwealth" at Geneva, Knox had found the ideals of the true Protestant church. His mission became one of wiping out the vestiges of Catholicism in Scotland by leading the true church to enforce its strict religious beliefs and rules of conduct on individuals. To achieve this, Knox reasserted Calvin's conviction of the people's right to overthrow any ruler who attempts to enforce the supremacy of false doctrine (Catholicism) on their subjects. In 1559 Knox returned to Scotland, where he led a group of Protestant nobles intent on ending the power of the Roman Catholic church and overthrowing Mary Stuart. He was now recognized as the leader of the Reform movement. Even before this, however, he had begun to encourage the organization of reformed congregations that assumed the authority to choose their own ministers and elders. Backed by the Scottish Parliament, which outlawed the celebration of Mass, he framed the Confession of Faith and summoned the first General Assembly of the Reformed Church. The articles of the Presbyterian faith that were established were modeled on Calvin's views on theology and church governance. The arrival of Mary Queen of Scots in 1561 touched off years of conflict in Scotland that ended only with her forced abdication in 1567. During this period, Knox defied Mary's authority, denounced her private masses as a disguised attempt to restore outlawed Catholic worship, and tirelessly championed the doctrines of the Reformed church. By the time of Knox's death in 1572, Catholicism in Scotland had been vanquished. Knox's Reformed church now prevailed, resting firmly on the Calvinistic doctrine of predestination and the elect of God. And its severe strictures of right conduct and morality were permanently joined to the ascendant role of the congregation in church government.
