Price Upon Request
  • Description
    COMMENTARY: John Wesley was a Anglican minister and theologian; credited with founding the evangelical movement known as Methodism. Wesley spent two years in America with the Georgia Colony from 1736-1738. His presence was requested by the founder of the 1733 Georgia Colony, James Oglethorpe. Wesley was to be the minister of the Savannah parish, as laid out in the “Ogelthorpe Plan”. On the way to Georgia, Wesley first met the Moravian settlers, who were deeply rooted in pietism; their deeply personal religion became his influence for the foundation of Methodism.
