No idea what to think of this book, other than the vague memory from grade school that John Wesley helped found the Methodist denomination.

I do find a few of his chapter titles interesting.
"The Menace of Antinomianism: A Blow at the Root, or Christ Stabb'd in the House of His Friends" and
"The Struggle with the Calvinists/Predestination Calmly Considered" (Haha, just got through hearing Edwards bashing Arminianism...)

So kids, can anyone tell me what antinomianism means? Guess we'll find out......more
Every Methodist should have to read this to become a member of our Church. It's beautiful, artful & compehensive.
