As anyone familiar with both the stereotypes and the scholarship related to Wesley knows, tricky interpretive questions abound: was Wesley a conservative, high church Tory or a revolutionary protodemocrat or proto-Marxist? Was he a modern rationalist obsessed with the epistemology of religious belief or a late medieval style thinker who believed in demonic possession and supernatural healing? Was Wesley primarily a pragmatic evangelist or a serious theologian committed to the long-haul work of catechesis, initiation, and formation?
Wesley: A Guide for the Perplexed sheds new light on Wesley's life and teaching, and aims to help students understand this enigmatic figure.

About the Author:

Jason E. Vickers is Associate Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies at United Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Review:

"A strong series of guides, aimed at the student market looking for more than just a basic introduction and overview on the subjects addressed. Each one is well written and contains enough information to get a student well-versed in the subjects at hand and form a strong basis for further study." Reviewed in Publishing News, 2008

'Vickers is to be commended for producing a synoptic vision of John Wesley's thought that is not just a great introduction for beginners but offers important new insights for those who have been studying Wesley for some time. He grounds Wesley in the particularity of eighteenth-century establishment Anglicanism, and uses this grounding to sketch a broad coherence among Wesley's ecclesiastical, political, and theological commitments. His central thesis is a landmark for future studies of these issues.'

Randy L. Maddox, Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Duke Divinity School, USA

(Randy L. Maddox)

Vickers's book is worthy of a positive reception by Wesley experts while also serving as excellent entrée into Wesley studies for introductory students (Wesley and Methodist Studies)
