Description

Between 1876 and 1903, the English intellectual historian Leslie Stephen, the Irish historian William Edward Hartpole Lecky, and the American historian and educator (not yet turned politician) Thomas Woodrow Wilson, fixed their separate attentions upon John Wesley, each for a different purpose and each achieving a different conclusion. Each recognized Wesley as a significant contributor to the history of his times; each viewed Wesley's evangelical organization as one means of raising the spiritual and moral values of the British nation; each identified significant weaknesses in the man, in his organization, in his overall accomplishments. The editorial notes in these volumes supply necessary expansion upon the writers' generalizations, and thus strives to sharpen, clarify, and correct the focal points of each argument.
