John Wesley: Fearless Evangelist, Controversial Leader & Peacemaker.
How can Christians today reach a world that is becoming increasingly intolerant to the teachings of the church? During his life in 18th century England, John Wesley experienced greater hostility than exists today in the West. John Wesley forged his ministry in the midst of mobs, riots, and angry diatribes, yet this fearless evangelist found a way to reach the very enemies in need of transformation with the message of the Gospel. This complex personality drove one of the most significant renewal movements of the English-speaking world--a movement that transformed the spirituality, morality, and work of the church for the next three centuries. There is a lot we can learn from this great man of God as we read through the life of John Wesley.
