This book is a definite must have for those who want to understand either John Wesley or his idea of Christian Perfection or both better. Reverend Olson treats this book with the care that it deserves and brings a deeper and clearer understanding to a subject that has been sadly misunderstood by many. For both the serious scholar as well as the casual reader this book is full of important information and revelations that helps the reader truly come to understand the positions that Wesley took. John Wesley has been a man embraced by many traditions and Rev. Olson helps us to understand more clearly just how Wesley's ministry affected modern Christianity as well as how he was affected by those who he related to throughout his life. And how those relationships as well as his understanding of his relationship with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ helped to form a view of theology that would impact the world for generations to come. Do not miss making this book a part of your Wesley collection. If you want to understand Wesley better get this book. If you want to understand your faith better get this book. If fact just get this book you will not be disappointed.
