John Wesley’s most significant and enduring theological contribution was that of Christian Perfection, the idea that as we grow in faith, God’s spirit lovingly changes us until we become perfect in love. Unlike human perfection, Christian Perfection is grounded in the completeness of the Christian experience, rather than in a sinless life.
A Plain Account of Christian Perfection is Wesley’s definitive work on the subject, offering a complete discussion of the doctrine and the process of entire sanctification along the spiritual journey.
The writings represented in The John Wesley Collection resourced the early Methodists in their quest to spread the gospel. In each of his works, John Wesley was vitally driven by the practical reality of the inner witness and outer working of the Holy Spirit. The relevance of these writings continues to the present day. It is our prayer that this collection would once again resource a great global awakening to the gospel, fomenting a revolution of Holy Love.
