The Works of John Wesley Volume 29: Letters V (1774-1781)
Randy L. Maddox, William Kellon Quick Professor Emeritus of Wesleyan and Methodist Studies, has edited a new volume of letters from John Wesley.
The correspondence presented in this fifth volume of Wesley’s letters includes a large number of his pastoral letters to various female and male lay persons in his societies. It also traces the fluctuations of Wesley’s stance on the British colonists in North America (and their Whig supporters in England) from the growing flames through the closing battles of their revolution. The volume includes over 180 items not found in previous editions of Wesley’s letters.
Maddox’s scholarly interests focus on the theology of John and Charles Wesley and theological developments in the later Methodist/Wesleyan tradition. In addition to numerous articles, he is author of Responsible Grace: John Wesley’s Practical Theology, a contributor to Wesley and the Quadrilateral, and editor of Aldersgate Reconsidered, Rethinking Wesley’s Theology for Contemporary Methodism, The Cambridge Companion to John Wesley, and Volume 12 of The Bicentennial Edition of the Works of John Wesley.
Maddox is an ordained elder in the Dakotas Conference of The United Methodist Church, and has served as a theological consultant to the Council of Bishops on several projects.
