Overview

One of the first major Methodist theologians, John Fletcher was known by his contemporaries to be a humble man of great faith. A friend of John and Charles Wesley, Fletcher became an articulate defender of Wesleyan-Arminian doctrines, challenging the predominance of Calvinism among his peers. His writings and sermons, many originally written to defend John Wesley from attacks of heresy, influenced generations of theologians and preachers. The Works of the Reverend John Fletcher (6 vols.) includes Fletcher's Five Checks to Antinomianism and Portrait of St. Paul, two works that solidified his place among the top Christian thinkers of his day. Also included are sermons, essays, personal correspondence, lectures, and more, as well as a biography on Fletcher by Joseph Benson and the biography of his extraordinary wife—the first female authorized to preach in the Methodist Church. Students of Wesleyan theology and Calvinism alike will benefit for the Logos Bible Software edition of The Works of the Reverend John Fletcher (6 vols.)

Praise for the Print Edition

I have not known one so uniformly and deeply devoted to God.... nor do I expect to find another such, on this side of eternity.

—John Wesley

Here was a man who had been forgotten by modern Christendom, and deprived of mention by the historians, but who appears to have changed the course of national events through his prayers and zeal. It struck me as being strange that such a saint, although reserved (and thus elusive), should be neglected by us if he had been such a source of inspiration and godliness then. The fortunes of history are beyond human explanation, and sometimes the very ones who ought to be long-remembered are pushed out of the limelight by those who have more voluble supporters.

—David R. Smith

No age ever provided a man of more fervent piety or more perfect charity, and no church ever possessed a more apostolic minister.

—Robert Southey

One of the most pious and useful ministers of his generation. He preached with great fervor the plain truths of the Gospel, and labored incessantly during the week to awaken sinners.

—D. S. Schaff

About John Fletcher

John Fletcher was born in Nyon, Switzerland in 1729. Educated in Geneva, Fletcher was ordained in 1752. He married Mary Bosanquet who became the first female preacher authorized by John Wesley to preach. For twenty-five years (1760–1785) Fletcher served as the vicar of the parish of Madeley. Although he was the "Arminian of Arminians" and preached against Calvinism, Fletcher was remembered by followers and detractors as "not a polemist, but always treated his opponents with fairness and courtesy." (D. S. Schaff)
