Study the immensely important movement of Wesleyanism and its founder, John Wesley—one of the most influential figures in modern Christianity, North American Christianity in particular. This collection from Baylor offers essential reading for those wanting to understand this tradition and how it relates to past and present Christianity. In Wesley, Aquinas, and Christian Perfection, Edgardo A. Colón-Emeric presents Wesley’s view of Christian perfection as complementary to the theology of Aquinas and an ecumenical bridge between Wesleyan and Roman Catholic traditions. In Spiritual Literacy in John Wesley’s Methodism, Vicki Tolar Burton argues that female and working-class intellectual and social empowerment was a central aspect of Wesley’s Methodism, often overlooked or denied by Wesley scholars. William J. Abraham, in Aldersgate and Athens, focuses on the philosophical aspects of Wesley’s theology by considering his epistemological framework. Finally, in Wesley, Wesleyans, and Reading Bible as Scripture, Joel B. Green and David F. Watson bring together an impressive group of scholars in a valuable volume on Wesleyanism covering major approaches to Wesleyan studies, as well as the contemporary Wesleyan tradition.
