Zondervan John Wesley's Teachings, Vol. 1: God and Providence

John Wesley's Teachings is the first systematic presentation of John Wesley's theology ever produced. Wesley was a prolific writer and commentator on Scripture---his collected works fill eighteen volumes---and yet it is commonly held that he was not systematic or consistent in his theology and teachings.

Drawing from primary texts, church historian and theologian Thomas C. Oden demonstrates that Wesley displayed a remarkable degree of internal theological consistency over his sixty years of preaching, writing, and ministry.

In volume one, God and Providence Oden explores to critical doctrines that have often caused controversy for Wesley, but the nonetheless embody the full orthodoxy of the broad Christian and evangelical tradition. Sub-categories examined here include:

  • God's Attributes
  • Scripture
  • The Wesleyan Quadrilateral
  • Creation & Fall
  • Sin
  • Humanity
This series of 4 volumes is a text-by-text guide to John Wesley's teaching. It introduces Wesley's thought on the basic tenets of Christian teaching: God and Providence (volume 1), Christ and Salvation (volume 2), The Practice of Pastoral Care (volume 3), and Ethics and Society (volume 4).

In everyday modern English, Oden clarifies Wesley's explicit intent and communicates his meaning clearly to a contemporary audience. Both lay and professional readers will find this series useful for devotional reading, moral reflection, sermon preparation, and for referencing Wesley's opinions on a broad range of pressing issues of contemporary society.
