    "The Sermons of John Wesley: A Collection for the Christian

    "The Sermons of John Wesley: A Collection for the Christian Journey" is quite possibly the best compilation of Wesley sermons to date. Masterfully organized and easily accessible, Collins and Vickers have produced a work that will lead the way for the next generation, eager to experience the holy love of God. John Wesley's life goal in publishing his sermons was to pass on the genius of the Methodist life, faith, and practice. In this new collection, Collins and Vickers take every step to insure that Wesley's legacy lives on. Most importantly, Collins and Vickers have shed the common tendency to present Wesley's sermons in chronological order. This new collection has been intentionally ordered to reflect a Wesleyan understanding of the way of salvation or the ordo salutis in particular. In reading Wesley's sermons, the reader is no longer asked to survey Wesley's personal chronology or biography, but is invited to engage the timeless truths held within the sermons themselves. Being a student of Wesley, I greatly recommend this text to anyone searching for a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, the magnificent work of God in our lives today, or John Wesley's theology in general.

    As a student and fan of Wesley, I eagerly nab anything that comes out pertaining to him. Being well read across the spectrum of contemporary and historical Wesleyan scholars, for my money, Collins is without equal and his latest piece only strengthens that opinion. What Collins has endeavored to do with this latest work is to compile Wesley's sermons in such a way as to illustrate the Wesleyan picture of the ordo salutis. Beyond being incredibly convenient, this is also incredibly powerful in helping the Christian to better understand their faith and their journey. Wesley's words are every bit as timely and relevant today as they were in the 18th century; and this book provides an excellent resource for those looking to either discover or rediscover Wesley.

    This edition of the sermons of John Wesley will be a treasure for years to come. Instead of arranging the order of Wesley's sermons chronologically or according to the historic 44 or 52 standard sermons, Collins and Vickers have arranged them with the intention of contributing to the theological and spiritual formation of the Christian life. With an eye on serious Christian development, the sermons are presented in terms of "the way of salvation" with justification/regeneration and entire sanctification as the "two foci" of redemption, bringing this edition of Wesley's sermons to a total of 60. Indeed, this edition of Wesley's sermons is sure to be a helpful tool for personal devotions, new converts/catechesis classes, and small group discussions. Lovers of all-things-Wesley will want to make sure to invest in such a valuable edition of Wesley's sermons.
