Item Description...
Vicki Tolar Burton argues that John Wesley wanted to make ordinary Methodist men and women readers, writers, and public speakers because he understood the powerful role of language for spiritual formation. His understanding came from his own family and education, from his personal spiritual practices and experiences, and from the evidence he saw in the lives of his followers. By examining the intersections of literacy, rhetoric, and spirituality as they occurred in early British Methodism-and by exploring the meaning of these practices for class and gender-the author provides a new understanding of the method of Methodism.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thorough treatment of a long-neglected aspect of Wesley's Methodism  Dec 14, 2008
Burton provides a cogent and insightful analysis of Wesley's activities as a reader, author, abridger, and publisher of texts, as well as a detailed consideration of the impact that Wesley's textual practices had on his followers. Among other topics, her book lays out more clearly than any to date the influence that Wesley's father Samuel, and his mother Suzanna had on his development as a reader; the role that his textual practices played in bringing about his conversion; the spiritual and rhetorical uses he made of his diaries and published journals; and the ways he went about encouraging his followers, including women and lay preachers, to read, speak, and write about their own spiritual journeys. Burton also provides a detailed accounting of Wesley's 254,512 volume book inventory at the time of his death in 1791. Burton's book will be useful, not only to those interested in Wesley, but also in reading and writing practices in Britain more generally throughout the long eighteenth century.
