John Wesley Wesley traveled constantly, generally on horseback, preaching twice or thrice a day. He formed societies, opened chapels, superintended schools and orphanages, wrote commentaries and other religious literature, replied to attacks on Methodism, conducted controversies, and carried on a prodigious correspondence. He is believed to have traveled more than 250,000 miles in the course of his ministry, and to have preached more than 40,000 times.

In 1750 Wesley published a monolithic fifty-volume set of books called A Christian Library: “Extracts from and Abridgments of the Choicest Pieces of Practical Divinity Which Have Been Published in the English Tongue.” In this collection of writings,he mostly ignores the church fathers (represented only by the apostolic fathers and Macarius), the great medieval scholastics, and the reformers. Instead, Wesley focuses on recent centuries (from as far back as the sixteenth up to his contemporaries like Jonathan Edwards in the eighteenth), English works (including both Puritans and Established churchmen who took turns persecuting each other), and above all, “Practical Divinity.”
