About the Authors
  • This three-volume account of the life of John Wesley (1703–91) was published in the year of his death. Written by John Hampson (c.1753–1819), a Church of England clergyman and former Methodist preacher, the work also contains a thorough review of Wesley's writings and a history of Methodism. Hampson's excellent overview of contemporary assessments of the preacher is more balanced than John Whitehead's two-volume Life of the Rev. John Wesley (1793–6), which has also been reissued in this series. Volume 1 explores Wesley's lineage and early life, including his journey to America in 1735 and his conversion in 1738. Volume 2 traces the growth of Methodism in both England and North America, covering Wesley's itinerant preaching and theological differences with his brother Charles. Volume 3 is predominantly concerned with a critique of Methodist theology, activity and mode of preaching.
