9780199295746: Charles Wesley and the Struggle for Methodist Identity

An important new study of the life and ministry of the Anglican minister and Evangelical leader Charles Wesley (1707-88) which examines the often-neglected contribution made by John Wesley's younger brother to the early history of the Methodist movement. Charles Wesley's importance as the author of classic hymns like `Love Divine' and `O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing' is well known, but his wider contribution to Methodism, the Church of England and the Evangelical Revival has been overlooked. Gareth Lloyd presents a new appraisal of Charles Wesley based on his own papers and those of his friends and enemies. The picture of the Revival that results from a fresh examination of one of Methodism's most significant leaders offers a new perspective on the formative years of a denomination that today has an estimated 80 million members worldwide.

Review:

...meticulously researched [and] comprehensive... * Betty Bookmark * an outstanding contribution ... ask for it in your local library or look out for the paperback, but do not miss it. * John Vickers, Methodist Recorder newspaper * ...well-written and readable book... * Gary Best, Church Times * ...well worth a read... * John Samuel, Now * it is one of those few books that says something really new. From henceforth, it will be indispensable to the history of Methodism. * Professor J. R. Watson, Journal of the Wesley Historical Society * This is a must read for all who are interested in the Wesleys and the development of 18th century Methodism in England. * Methodist History * a book that removes a great deal of traditional clutter...it is like seeing Charles Wesley through a window that has been freshly cleaned, so that what was blurred becomes sharp and clear. Lloyd tells the story in its familiar outlines, but with new and telling detail. * J. R. Watson, Proceedings of the Wesley Historical Society * Lloyd provides us with solidly gorunded work on Charles Wesley...He gives a focused picture of the poet-priest as paradigmatic of the Methodist movement in the eighteenth century, the legacy of which the contemporary Church wrestles with. * Tim Macquiban Journal of Theological Studies * excellent and throught-provoking...deserve[s] the highest praise. * Barrie Tabraham, Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
