Charles Wesley, perhaps best known for his hymns, "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul," was the younger brother of John Wesley and the co-founder and poet-laureate of Methodism. Although he was an important figure in the history of Protestantism, Wesley's personal life was shrouded by a cloak of silence and much of his work went unpublished. In this illuminating reader, John Tyson has collected hymns, sermons, letters, and journal material--many rare and hitherto unknown--to chronicle the life and works of Wesley in his own words. Tyson provides an extensive biographical-theological introduction, and supplements Wesley's collected works with interpretative and introductory notes, creating a definitive account of Wesley's character and contribution to the Methodist heritage.

"A fascinating contribution to Wesley studies, making available material which is normally only accessible to users of the Methodist Archives and Research Centre. It may either be used as a source book, or simply read and enjoyed."--Proceedings of the Wesley Historical Society "[This book] can be recommended without hesitation to academic and seminary collections on Church music history and theology. American readers should be particularly interested in the documents concerning Wesley's Georgia sojourn in the 1730s." --Library Journal "Charles Wesley: A Reader is hghly recommended for students of the Wesleys and their theology, religion in eighteenth-century England, and hymnology."-- Southwestern Journal of Theology "Wesley's writings...are of great interest, particularly with regard to the history of Protestant theology."--Virginia Quarterly Review "This volume helps us better understand the place of Charles Wesley in the Christian tradition and his invaluable contribution to the Methodist movement. Selections from Wesley's sermons, journals, letters and hymns reveal his extraordinary grasp of Christian faith and life. Furthermore, the author's introductory essay and notes provide an excellent commentary on Wesley's role as theologian, preacher, hymn writer and church leader."--Charles Yrigoyen, Jr., Editor, Methodist History.

"The years between the hardback and paperback editions of the book have not diminished its usefulness... The book draws from a variety of sources, but particularly from Wesley's diary, letters, and hymns. Much of the material is published for the first time in this volume... Highly recommended for students of the Wesleys and their theology, religion in eighteenth-century England, and hymnology."--Southwestern Journal of Theology
