John Wesley was apparently a man who loved God with all his heart AND his mind. If you want to read well-constructed sermons that engage biblical texts as they challenge hearers to take their relationships with God seriously, read this book!

Be still my beating heart! When I read this anthology
Wesley was describing the change which God works in the heart through faith in Christ, I felt my heart strangely warmed. I felt I did trust in Christ, Christ alone for salvation; and an assurance was given me that He had taken away my sins, even mine, and saved me from the law of sin and death.

This is not something you'd want to read before bed. But the timeless truths of Wesley's writings are compacted into this volume. Not designed to be read aloud, these sermons are theological statements which succinctly outline Wesley's beliefs and doctrinal interpretations.

I'm a Methodist. Of course I like these.
