Product Description

In his classic book A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, John Wesley offers a comprehensive teaching on the doctrine of Christian perfection. In it, he describes the evolution of his own theological reasoning, telling the story of how he came to understand and to preach this doctrine in his own life. In this work that is part autobiography, part spiritual contemplation, and part scriptural exegesis, Wesley shares tracts he wrote on the topic of perfection, describes the conflicts that sometimes arose over his ideas, reveals his own developing convictions, and offers probing queries for all believers to consider. Included at the end is an account of Wesley's personal experience of "entire holiness."

Author Bio

John Wesley (1703And#8211;1791) is known for two things: cofounding Methodism and his tremendous work ethic. In the 1700s, when land travel was by walking, horseback, or carriage, Wesley logged more than four thousand miles a year. During his lifetime he preached about forty thousand sermons. In 1729, he became a tutor at Oxford University. While there, he founded a religious club that was nicknamed "the Methodists." In 1738, Wesley's life was changed when he was attending a religious meeting in London. He later said that while listening to somebody read Martin Luther's Preface to Romans, "I felt my heart strangely warmed." Afterward, he became a great preacher, traveling throughout the British Isles. Although he never intended to form a new church separate from the Church of England, his followers soon began to form their own organization. The Methodists placed great emphasis on living a holy life, and they had many traveling preachers. Wesley preached his last sermon on February 23, 1791, and died a week later, on March 2, at the age of eighty-seven.
