John and Charles Wesley provide a vision of God that beckons to anyone interested in a spiritual life.John Wesley (17031791), Anglican priest, theologian and church reformer, and his brother Charles Wesley (17071788), one of the greatest hymn writers of all time, co-founded Methodism, a major movement of Christian renewal. Their vision of Christian discipleship included important spiritual practices that fueled the revival of the eighteenth-century Church of England. Their holistic theology/spirituality affords guidance for the contemporary spiritual seeker who yearns for greater meaning and purpose in life.This unique presentation of the writings of these two inspiring brothers brings together some of the most essential material from their large corpus of work. While John articulated his vision of Christianity through many sermons, journals and theological treatises, Charles expressed his theology in lyrical form through some nine thousand hymns and devotional poems.These excerpts from Charles and John Wesley, with probing facing-page commentary, will provide insight not only into the renewal of dynamic and vital Christianity, but into the struggles and concerns of all who seek to be faithful participants in Gods vision of love in every age.Paul W. Chilcote, PhD, is professor of historical theology and Wesleyan studies and director of the Center for Applied Wesleyan Studies at Ashland Theological Seminary. He also serves as president of The Charles Wesley Society, an international organization devoted to the preservation and dissemination of the prose and poetic writings of the Anglican priest and highly acclaimed hymn writer. He is the author of many books, including Recapturing the Wesleys Vision: An Introduction to the Faith of John and Charles Wesley.
