Charles Wesley, perhaps best known for his hymns, "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul," was the younger brother of John Wesley and the co-founder and poet-laureate of Methodism. Although he was an important figure in the history of Protestantism, Wesley's personal lifewas shrouded by a cloak of silence and much of his work went unpublished. In this illuminating reader, John Tyson has collected hymns, sermons, letters, and journal material--many rare and hitherto unknown--to chronicle the life and works of Wesley in his own words. Tyson provides an extensivebiographical-theological introduction, and supplements Wesley's collected works with interpretative and introductory notes, creating a definitive account of Wesley's character and contribution to the Methodist heritage.

Editorial Reviews

"The years between the hardback and paperback editions of the book have not diminished its usefulness... The book draws from a variety of sources, but particularly from Wesley's diary, letters, and hymns. Much of the material is published for the first time in this volume... Highly recommendedfor students of the Wesleys and their theology, religion in eighteenth-century England, and hymnology."--Southwestern Journal of Theology
