The Revd Dr Herbert
McGonigle reviews a recent addition to the
Wesley Fellowship catalogue below. It is obtainable
from The WF Book & Sales Officer at the
Wesley Papers: Papers Presented
to the Wesley Fellowship Conference in 2000, edited
by Paul Taylor, (The Wesley Fellowship in Association
with Moorley's Print and Publishing, Ilkeston,
2002, pp. iv, 98. £11.60, including UK postage.
These are the four Papers
from the Wesley Fellowship Residential Conference,
held in 2000.
- Dr John Colwell compares
the teaching of John Wesley and Thomas Aquinas
on the extent to which Christians are able
to love God and their neighbour with 'perfect
love' in this world.
- Bill Graham examines the
education of John Wesley's preachers and his
36 pages, together with some 272 Endnotes,
provide a wealth of carefully researched information
on this topic.
- Geoffrey Fewkes provides
us with a brief biography of Reader Harris
(1847-1909), the founder of the originally-named
Pentecostal League of Prayer, and a comparison
of John Wesley's and Harris's views on regeneration
- The fourth Paper is by
our late, and highly esteemed, co-founder
of the Wesley Fellowship, Bill Parkes. Bill
outlines the life and ministry of the American
Methodist camp-meeting preacher, Lorenzo Dow
(1777-1834). Dow was prominent in the early
days of Primitive Methodism and preached with
great power and conviction. Sadly in his latter
years he fell away into Freemasonry and died
apparently in spiritual darkness.
All four Papers provide a wealth
of information on the subjects dealt with and
Wesley Papers is very good value at £11.60,
