The Study of World Christian Revitalization Movements in Wesleyan & Pietist Studies

This book is a collection of essays by Wesley scholars reflecting a range of topics from biblical studies and practical theology, to systematic theology and theological methodology, as well as historical and interreligious theology. When the Methodist tradition emerged during the eighteenth century in Britain, it did so as a revival movement. John Wesley, with his brother Charles Wesley, organized, galvanized, and expanded Methodism into a religious society within and beyond the Church of England. They embraced the mantle of preaching the gospel and spreading scriptural holiness across the land. While their ministerial designs were uniform, the eclectic nature of Wesley’s interests is indicated by his variegated publishing record, but what unified his writing and preaching was a calling to share the faith of holy living. These essays written in honor of Dr. McGonigle reflect Wesley’s theological, evangelical, biblical, and pastoral concerns as well as the unifying theme of holiness which binds together Wesley’s commitments.
