While the most standard treatments of John Wesley's theology focus their attention on his distinctive 'way of salvation', they fail to provide a thorough examination of Wesley's 'means of grace.' This book offers the first detailed discussion of the means of grace as the liturgical, communal, and devotional context within which growth in the Christian life actually occurred. Knight shows how the means of grace together form an interrelated pattern that enables a growing relationship with God.

About the Author:

Henry H. Knight III is Donald and Pearl Wright Professor of Wesleyan Studies at Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. He has served as a pastor in the United Methodist Church and has published several books and articles on Wesley's theology.

Review:

...illuminates the shape of Wesley's thought... (Don E. Saliers, Emory University)

...careful and balanced... (Rex D. Matthews, Candler School Of Philosophy)

...well worth publishing... Knight draws together several streams of recent scholarship to highlight the dynamic and relational nature of both grace and holiness in Wesley's theology...a very significant contribution to Wesley studies. More importantly, it is a contribution to the larger Christian community as we seek to understand the nature and nurture of Christian life. (Methodist History)

...a most valuable study of Wesley's spirituality, freeing it from some misunderstandings and abuses and valuable not least in its examination of Wesley's sacramental theology... (Methodist Recorder)

...well-produced...marvelously comprehensive in that they avoid both formalism and enthusiasm...Knight has read Wesley with thoroughness...A valuable piece of work. (Gordon F. Wakefield)

It is a must for anyone pursuing scholarly work on John Wesley's theology, and will be of real interest to anyone else who want to learn more about Wesley. It is one of those relatively rare books that is both profound and very readable and understandable. (E. Dale Dunlap)

...quite original...an interesting and ofter stimulating approach to Wesley's theology and system of piety which deserves careful reading... (Proceedings Of The Wesley Historical Society)

With critically appreciative treatments of John Wesley's understanding of both baptism and the Lord's Supper, Dr. Knight has given a very fine appraisal of Wesley's understanding of the means of grace. The work is fully and carefully documented and there is much evidence of close acquaintance with both earlier and contemporary works on Wesley's theology. ...this new work is the first to attempt a systematic treatment of all the means of grace that John Wesley practised personally and encouraged his converts to do likewise. In spite of the danger of using a much over-worked cliche, Dr. Knight's study is an original (and very welcome) contribution to Wesley study. (The Evangelical Quarterly)
