This book by Abraham is a little difficult for the layperson in my estimation. It is a study of John Wesley's use of reason in his Christian experience and explaining his Christian experience. He has done a fine job for us, well researched and presented, he clears the air in one of Wesley's difficult areas of thought.

A very nice little book dealing with some contemporary issues in religious epistemology and connecting it to some of the thought of John Wesley. Some thought-provoking stuff in this book!
