Customer Reviews for Westminster John Knox Press Wesley for Armchair Theologians

Westminster John Knox Press Wesley for Armchair Theologians

Called the most important Protestant since Luther, the founder of the Methodists preached Christ to hundreds of thousands of people, formed small groups to foster discipleship, and actively helped the poor and downtrodden. Abraham gives a remarkably evenhanded presentation of Wesley's emphases, achievements, and legacy. 192 pages, softcover from Westminster/John Knox.

One who reviewed this book said "Abraham gives his opinion of Wesley". Of course he does! He's the author, and his opinion is not bad. This is a well written book. Of course it is light, but that is the intent. Great introduction to a wonderful thinker and leader. I have much about Wesley over the years, and I learned a couple of things from this book. So, i would say it is worth your time.

William Abraham gives HIS view of Wesley. Not only does he somewhat describe Wesleyan theology, he is often very critical of Wesley. If I wanted a critique, I would have not bought a book titled "Armchair Theology". This is a very biased view and I would recommend a different book on Wesley's theology if you want to learn about Wesley from an unbiased source.
