"From the Publisher:" GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR: JOHN WESLEY'S EVANGELICAL ECONOMICS by Theodore W. Jennings, Jr. Provides an important corrective to the view that Wesley was concerned with the salvation of souls only and not with the human social condition.
This provocative volume illuminates a dimension of John Wesley's theology that has received insufficient attention: his deep and abiding commitment to the poor. By focusing on the radical nature of Wesley's "evangelical economics," Theodore W. Jennings, Jr., provides an important corrective to the view that Wesley was concerned with the salvation of souls only, and not also with the social conditions of human beings.
Theodore W. Jennings, Jr., author of The Liturgy of Liberation (Abingdon Press), has taught at the Evangelical Methodist Seminary in Mexico City. (1990)
