Founder of the Methodist movement. Celebrated preacher. Abolitionist. Gifted writer. John Wesley is known for all of these great qualities and more. Like his friend and contemporary George Whitefield, John Wesley didn't need a church to preach in—he preached wherever a group of people would listen—a field, a cottage, a town hall. And he did it every day. And 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.
The John Wesley Collection (29 vols.) contains all of his theological works, including the four-volume Explanatory Notes upon the Old and New Testaments, plus his journals, essays, letters, sermons, grammars, psalms, hymns, and addresses. Those familiar with the Thomas Jackson edition of The Works of John Wesley are aware they include some of his journals, but these are incomplete and missing large chunks of important entries—sometimes entire years are missing! The Logos edition of the John Wesley Collection (29 vols.) contains the unabridged and authoritative eight-volume journals edited by Nehemiah Curnock. Also included in this massive collection is a three-volume, in-depth biography on this extraordinary man of faith.
With the Logos Bible Software edition, each volume in the John Wesley Collection (29 vols.) is fully integrated with the other resources in your Logos library, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. The Logos edition also allows you to perform powerful searches and word studies, and Scripture references are linked to the wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes the John Wesley Collection (29 vols.) more powerful and easier to access than ever before for reading, sermon preparation, research, and Bible study.
As truly an apostolic man, in saintly devotion, strength of character, and influence among men, Wesley ranks in history with Savonarola, Wycliffe, Huss, Luther, Calvin, and Fox: all era making men."
