Pulpit Helps, March 2008
Charles Wesley (1707-1788) was the cofounder of Methodism and the author of more than 9,000 hymns and sacred poems. John Tyson here traces the remarkable life of this influential man from cradle to grave, using rare including previously unpublished hymns, letters, and journal materials. Readers also get a glimpse into Wesley’s heart and mind through the window of his hymn texts. This is a biography that any student of church history or hymnody will welcome.
