Much has been written about John Wesley's heartwarming experience that propelled him to preach salvation all over the UK, but little is known about the other facets of his life that made the movement he started have the effect of saving England from the ravages of the French Revolution.

You will be surprised to discover much about Wesley that you never knew, his skills in organizing prayer groups, his writing of over 200 books, how he established free health clinics for the poor, supported the abolition of slavery, and even his painful failure at marriage. His preaching among average citizens assured that the Wesleyan movement would grow into one of the largest evangelical movements in the 18th and 19th centuries.
