Publisher's Description

Wesley for Armchair Theologians engagingly presents the life and theology of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. Written by prominent Wesley scholar William Abraham, who aimed to "make Wesley come alive for those who would truly love to become armchair theologians," the book is an excellent, entertaining, and expert guide to the work of this important Christian figure.

Written by experts but designed for the novice, the Armchair series provides accurate, concise, and witty overviews of some of the most profound moments and theologians in Christian history. These books are essential supplements for first-time encounters with primary texts, lucid refreshers for scholars and clergy, and enjoyable reads for the theologically curious.

    One who reviewed this book said "Abraham gives his opinion of Wesley". Of course he does! He's the author, and his opinion is not bad. This is a well written book. Of course it is light, but that is the intent. Great introduction to a wonderful thinker and leader. I have much about Wesley over the years, and I learned a couple of things from this book. So, i would say it is worth your time.

    William Abraham gives HIS view of Wesley. Not only does he somewhat describe Wesleyan theology, he is often very critical of Wesley. If I wanted a critique, I would have not bought a book titled "Armchair Theology". This is a very biased view and I would recommend a different book on Wesley's theology if you want to learn about Wesley from an unbiased source.
