About the Book

Wesley’s Wars discusses the theological wars that John Wesley waged on behalf of “true religion,” a religion of the heart. They were fought to protect the people in his society who trusted him with their spiritual health, and he took that seriously. He waged war on incorrect ideas of original sin, predestination, the church, and Christian perfection.
