Founder of the Methodist movement, celebrated preacher, abolitionist, and gifted writer; the significance John Wesley can hardly be overestimated. Like his friend and contemporary George Whitefield, John Wesley took the proclamation of God's Word beyond the church and into the world. He preached wherever a group of people would listen— a field, a cottage, a town hall—and he did it every day. Although he never officially left the Church of England, the Methodist movement that he planted quickly spread across England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and to colonial America. Today, over seventy-million people belong to Methodist organizations in the Wesleyan tradition all over the world.
