Summary

John Wesley was an 18th-century preacher, theologian, and cleric who helped found the Methodist movement with his brother, Charles. Arguably one of the most important Christian voices of his day, Wesley wrote in his journal on a daily basis, capturing his views, thoughts, feelings, and prayers on paper to share with the world. The journal contains 50 years' worth of this great man's reflections and experiences and is widely considered one of the great spiritual classics.

Not full journal

Indeed this is not the full journal and much is skipped. However, it still contains hours and hours of John Wesley's journal.

The narrator does a remarkable job reading it; he voice is clear, his pace is just right, and his style lively yet not distracting.

This is fantastic!

Intimate History

I thoroughly enjoyed this insight into John Wesley's life. As the introduction states, and I'm paraphrasing, Wesley gives us an accurate account of 18th century Great Britian, while Wesley's anecdotes provide us with insights into the man and his exceptional life.

Thank God for John Wesley!

I thank God for John Wesley’s detailed account of his Christian walk. It was seeing how God was with John always, even in the little things like taking a fall, that really encouraged me and gave me clarity. It was also John’s reflection on worry and it’s effect. Changed my life.

Inspirational but somewhat tedious

This is certainly an inspirational autobiography, and well worth listening to. It is, however, quite long and at times pretty tedious.
