John Wesley was an 18th-century preacher, theologian, and cleric who helped found the Methodist movement with his brother, Charles. Arguably one of the most important Christian voices of his day, Wesley wrote in his journal on a daily basis, capturing his views, thoughts, feelings, and prayers on paper to share with the world. The journal contains 50 years' worth of this great man's reflections and experiences and is widely considered one of the great spiritual classics.

The great unknown of the Southwest is conquered by a one-armed man and his crew of adventurers, placing the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon on the map of the American continent. It is a journey no human being had ever made before. Dangerous rapids, narrow canyon walls offering no escape, terrifying river waterfalls, capsized boats, near drowning, lost equipment and disillusioned men are dramatically described by John Wesley Powell, leader of this adventurous party.
"No justice done to JW Powell by narrator"
John Wesley was a man of God who was soaked in the oil of heaven. He helped to spark revival in America and across Europe with his unorthodox style of outdoor preaching. His sermon Salvation by Faith is an important piece of literature that is filled with truth and grace. It is straightforward and is a famous sermon of Wesley's. It is my prayer that this book influences you to receive all that God desires for you, and that you would be edified and encouraged to pursue Christ in holiness and humble devotion.

These poems have been brought together in order that these spiritual truths and impressions, presented in poetical form, will comfort and edify God's people as they wrestle daily with the world, the flesh, and the devil.
