Jack Jackson's Offering Christ not only forwards decades worth of conversations and study of John Wesley's evangelism, but also offers a clearer portrait of Wesley's evangelistic vision, understood through the lens of "offering grace."
Jackson forwards a fresh conception of Wesley's evangelistic vision by analyzing his method of gospel proclamation. Wesley was not constrained by the truncated vision of evangelism that has been dominant since the late nineteenth century, one that all too often centers on group preaching with a sole emphasis on conversion. Rather, he stressed a number of practices that focus on a verbal proclamation of the gospel.
These practices occur in a variety of settings, only one of which is public preaching, and result in a number of responses, only one of which is conversion. Of crucial importance for current theological students, clergy, and church leaders around the world, this book demonstrates that visitation, for the purpose of spiritual direction and evangelism, was in many ways the critical leadership and pastoral practice of early British Methodism. Offering Christ yields important insights into early Methodism that inform both contemporary practices of evangelism and Christian leadership for both clergy and laity.
