Publisher's Summary

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.

Not full journal

Indeed this is not the full journal and much is skipped. However, it still contains hours and hours of John Wesley's journal.

The narrator does a remarkable job reading it; he voice is clear, his pace is just right, and his style lively yet not distracting.

This is fantastic!

A Journal, Not a Story

If you are interested in the life of this man, these journal entries provide some insight into his beliefs, thoughts and life experiences. It is a plodding but rewarding venture. John Wesley’s impact on both sides of the pond has been instrumental in many people of the Christian faith. If only I had his discipline.

Wonderful listen!

John Wesley was a remarkable man. He cared so much for the people of Britain that he traveled thousands of miles every year on horseback to share the love of Jesus Christ with them. He continued even into his eighties when most would’ve retired. Thousands found forgiveness of sin from God as a result of his efforts. In addition to the religious side of the book, it’s also a great way to learn more about the history of the British working class of the 1700s. Fascinating listen!

"O LORD, Thou preservest man and beast"

I listened to this book for the purpose of learning more about John Wesley, and I was not disappointed. From these writings, I heard Wesley's faith grow and could see the incredible providences that marked his long life and protected him throughout. This version of the journal is cut down by 3/4 but still very extensive. The narration style by Derek Perkins seems perfect for this type of work.

I learned a lot.

Times have changed but the gospel has
not, nether have the needs of the people. This book is such a good example of how the spirit can touch even the most rebellious people.

Intimate History

I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into John Wesley's life. As the introduction states, and I'm paraphrasing, Wesley gives us an accurate account of 18th century Great Britian, while Wesley's anecdotes provide us with insights into the man and his exceptional life.

An excellent summary of an extraordinary life

What a life John Wesley lived for his Lord. His vast labours and his deep sincerity shine forth in this reading of his journal. What an inspiration to us who strive to walk with his Lord in our age.

Highly recommend.
