The second of three volumes devoted to Wesley’s theological writings.The second of three volumes devoted to Wesley’s theological writings contains two major sets of material. The first set (edited by Paul Chilcote) contains writings throughout Wesley’s ministry devoted to defense of the doctrine of Christian perfection, including "A Plain Account of Christian Perfection." The second set (edited by Kenneth Collins) collects Wesley’s various treatises focused on predestination and related issues, often in direct debate with Calvinist writers, including "Predestination Calmly Considered."


"John Wesley produced a number of extended theological treatises, especially on topics that defined the Wesleyan branch of the Evangelical Revival, such as the doctrine of entire sanctification or Christian perfection. He also wrote extensively on controversial topics that differentiated Wesleyan Evangelicals from Calvinistic Evangelicals, such as the doctrine of limited atonement and its corollary doctrine of election or predestination. This volume gathers crucial, extended theological texts on these topics in a critical edition commensurate with the Bicentennial Edition. Scholars and Wesleyan Christian leaders have long awaited the publication of this volume of essays, and will be delighted to know that it is now available for their use."
