The 20th-century Wesley scholar Albert Outler argued in his introduction to the 1964 collection John Wesley that Wesley developed his theology by using a method that Outler termed the Wesleyan Quadrilateral. In this method, Wesley believed that the living core of Christianity was revealed in Scripture; and the Bible was the sole foundational source of theological development.

Though the book is a difficult read at times because of its archaic language, I think it paints a vivid picture of who Wesley was and what he believed. This book clearly portrays Wesley's life as aligned to his doctrine.... A man on a journey to heaven with all of the difficulties that the journey brings.

Outler was one of the best Wesley scholars of the mid 20th century. This work gives an easy to understand overview of Wesley's theology and his times. Sadly, most Wesley / Methodist authors are not as easy to read as Mr. Outler. A great addition for laity, seminary students and ordained clergy.

This book is well written and is a mainstay in Wesleyan history.

Wesley's ideas are worth reading and considering. Outler's helpful comments help the reader. It could be more helpful, however, by indicating more clearly the changes in his ideas over the years.

A good combination of conference notes, sermons, journals. Really good editors notes too. Must read to understand Wesley and his theology.

For those of us who follow in the footsteps of John Wesley in our theological heritage (mine being Arminian), I have grown to love the works of John Wesley. Sadly, much of what comes from the United Methodist Church here in the United States is liberal and very bias against John Wesley. Too often liberal Methodist try to either misrepresent the teachings of Wesley or they deny what he taught such as inerrancy.

That is why you need this book. While this book is a collection of the writings and teachings of Wesley, the book itself is a very indepth analysis of Wesley's teachings. In the book you will not only see his evangelical teachings such as justification by faith but also his Arminian teachings as well against the Calvinist of his day. Wesley's arguments can still be used today against Calvinism.

My only reason for not giving this a five star rating was that a short work such as this can-not cover John Wesley or his teachings. While this work tries to do so, it simply is not a full view of what Arminians, Wesleyans, or John Wesley himself truly believe. However, this is still a must read for every serious theological student.

This book is something of a sampler of John Wesley's writings. It is not a biography or story of Wesley's life. Rather it contains selected samples of his letters, sermons, etc., with editorial introductions. I found the book to be very useful; but you may wish to read a biography or two or Wesley before you read this book.
This book is very readable and provides great insight into the life and thought of the founder of Methodism, John Wesley. The editor does an excellent job with introductions and footnotes. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
