This is the second volume to Wesley's Journal to appear in the critical edition of The Works of John Wesley. Covering the period from late 1783 to 1743, it documents, in Wesley's own words, the formative years of the Methodist revival in Great Britian. Previously unpublished material from Wesley's private diaries supplements the account in the published Journal of such key events as Wesely's first adventure in "field preaching," the growing breach between Wesley and the Moravians, the formation of the first Methodist Societies, the establishment of the New Room in Bristol and the Foundery in London, and the emergence of the "lay preachers" or "circuit riders." * Each volume in the series is reich with footnotes that identify quotations, references, trace key themes, and offer vital background information.
