'Vickers is to be commended for producing a synoptic vision of John Wesley's thought that is not just a great introduction for beginners but offers important new insights for those who have been studying Wesley for some time. He grounds Wesley in the particularity of eighteenth-century establishment Anglicanism, and uses this grounding to sketch a broad coherence among Wesley's ecclesiastical, political, and theological commitments. His central thesis is a landmark for future studies of these issues.'

John Wesley is one of the most enigmatic religious figures in the eighteenth century, this Guide for the Perplexed will identify some of the key factors contributing to this perplexity and aid students in their understanding. >
-Publisher


As anyone familiar with both the stereotypes and the scholarship related to Wesley knows, tricky interpretive questions abound: was Wesley a conservative, high church Tory or a revolutionary protodemocrat or proto-Marxist? Was he a modern rationalist obsessed with the epistemology of religious belief or a late medieval style thinker who believed in demonic possession and supernatural healing? Was Wesley primarily a pragmatic evangelist or a serious theologian committed to the long-haul work of catechesis, initiation, and formation?
Wesley: A Guide for the Perplexedsheds new light on Wesley's life and teaching, and aims to help students understand this enigmatic figure.
