With the updating of the text, make easy for the readers to understand of the important teaching by John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement.
The topics cover: Needs and ways to Salvation, the Grace of God through Jesus Christ, on Holiness, and sermons on Christian living.
Highly recommend for people who are holding on the Faith.
