About the Author

Jason E Vickers PhD is Director of the Centre for Evangelical United Brethren Heritage and Assistant Professor of Theology, United Theological Seminary, Ohio, USA. He is author of Transitions in Methodist Christology (Abingdon Press, forthcoming) and editor of the Cambridge Companion to John Wesley (forthcoming 2009).


'Vickers is to be commended for producing a synoptic vision of John Wesley's thought that is not just a great introduction for beginners but offers important new insights for those who have been studying Wesley for some time. He grounds Wesley in the particularity of eighteenth-century establishment Anglicanism, and uses this grounding to sketch a broad coherence among Wesley's ecclesiastical, political, and theological commitments. His central thesis is a landmark for future studies of these issues.' Randy L. Maddox, Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies, Duke Divinity School, USA--Sanford Lakoff
