This detailed biography of John Wesley brings to life the remarkable journey of the man who founded Methodism. Written with Southey’s distinctive approach to biography, the book provides an engaging and comprehensive account of Wesley’s life as well as his work. Contemporary critics, however, claimed that since Southey was not a Methodist, he was unable to fully appreciate and capture Wesley’s internal struggles.
