"This exciting book explains how John Wesley read the Bible as a philosophically informed High Church, Arminian Anglican and how he was thereby able to reconcile scripture, reason, and tradition in a way which remains exemplary and important." — R. John Elford, Liverpool Hope University "This is an important contribution to two disciplines—biblical scholarship and Wesley studies—and I am delighted to see it published." — Kenneth G. C. Newport, from the Foreword "Dr. Bullen has produced a comprehensive and illuminating study of John Wesley's doctrine and use of the Bible. He makes clear that, though for Wesley Scripture was always the supreme authority for faith and life, he also made creative use of tradition, reason, and personal experience as offering contemporary, as well as historical, understanding for Christian Bible study." — John A. Newton, CBE, Wesley Historical Society
