9780349116570: John Wesley: A Brand from the Burning: The Life of John Wesley

John Wesley led the Second English Reformation. His Methodist 'Connexion' was divided from the Church of England, not by dogma and doctrine but by the new relationship which it created between clergy and people. Throughout a life tortured by doubt about true faith and tormented by a series of bizarre relationships with women, Wesley kept his promise to 'live and die an ordained priest of the Established Church'. However by the end of the long pilgrimage - from the Oxford Holy Club through colonial Georgia to every market place in England - he knew that separation was inevitable. But he could not have realised that his influence on the new industrial working class would play a major part in shaping society during the century of Britain's greatest power and influence and that Methodism would become a worldwide religion and the inspiration of 20th century television evangelism.

From the Inside Flap:

The Life of John Wesley portrays the founder of Methodism against a vividly rendered backdrop of the religious, social, and political landscape of eighteenth-century England. Through the power of his personality and the strength of his faith, Wesley became the leader of the English religious revival that arose in opposition to the established Anglican Church, and his theology continues to have an impact on religions worldwide.
Roy Hattersley follows Wesley?s spiritual journey, tracing his constant, often agonizing attempts to define the nature of virtue as well as the path to sanctity. The story of Wesley?s theological progress is vastly enriched by Hattersley?s revealing portrait of Wesley?s complex personality. A genuine scholar, Wesley published more work than any other author of the eighteenth century. He possessed phenomenal energy, traveling huge distances to preach and proselytize. Wesley practiced, as Hattersley writes, ?every form of personal discipline (diet, exercise, carefully planned day) except emotional restraint.? This candid account of Wesley?s relationship with women?falling desperately in love three times in his life, each time failing to make his intentions clear, and eventually ending up in a disastrous marriage?brilliantly brings to life Wesley?s human side, largely ignored in previous reverential biographies.
A wonderful synthesis of personal, social, and spiritual biography, The Life of John Wesley sheds new light on the variety of things that motivated one of the most interesting and significant figures in religious history.

From the Back Cover:

“This is a first-class biography, lucid and always interesting even on the dogma and theology. Hattersley asks all the right questions and seems incapable of writing a dull page.” —The Independent on Sunday
“Roy Hattersley has written a full and fair biography of a man it is possible to admire but harder to like. He is particularly clearsighted about the nature of Wesley’s theology, which was essentially conservative, and always pragmatic.” —New Statesman

“He [Roy Hattersley] is finely understanding of Wesley’s dogged spiritual journey.”
Times Literary Supplement

“Hattersley’s achievement is the admirable clarity with which he guides us through his theological labyrinth. With humour and sympathy he explores Wesley’s peculiar psychology within social and religious contexts, so that we can see how his interior quest shaped the greatest popular religious revival of his time.” —Sunday Times
