John Wesley: A Methodical Man

Published on

It has been said that "when John Wesley was carried to his grave, he left behind him a good library of books, a well-worn clergyman's gown" and the Methodist Church. The quotation attributed to John Wesley in this presentation has no historical source linking it to John Wesley. It is something that he could have said. The purpose of the quotation is to illustrate the sixfold methodological mantra that John Wesley or perhaps an anonymous contemporary penned for the edification of a future generation.
