The second of three volumes devoted to Wesleys theological writings contains two major sets of material. The first set (edited by Paul Chilcote) contains writings throughout Wesleys ministry devoted to defense of the doctrine of Christian perfection, including "A Plain Account of Christian Perfection." The second set (edited by Kenneth Collins) collects Wesleys various treatises focused on predestination and related issues, often in direct debate with Calvinist writers, including "Predestination Calmly Considered."
