3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Wesley avoided the limelight and was reluctant to face crowds but he had remarkable preaching ability, drawing people to him by his warmth and affection. It as while at Oxford that he became dissatisfied with the attitude of other undergraduates whom he thought lazy and ill-disciplined, so he and like-minded students came together to make better use of their time in study and prayer. On June 23rd, 1739, Charles preached to a crowd of 10,000 at Moorfields - the evangelical revival was under way and the Methodist movement started to gather speed. Like his brother John, Charles travelled to many parts of the country preaching to vast gatherings or small bands of followers, suffering persection, hardship and violence

Charles Wesley : a reader by Charles Wesley( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Wesley, perhaps best known for his hymns, "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "Jesus Lover of My Soul," was the younger brother of John Wesley and the co-founder and poet-laureate of Methodism. Although he was an important figure in the history of Protestantism, Wesley's personal life was shrouded by a cloak of silence and much of his work went unpublished. In this illuminating reader, John Tyson has collected hymns, sermons, letters, and journal material--many rare and hitherto unknown--to chronicle the life and works of Wesley in his own words. Tyson provides an extensive biographical-theological introduction, and supplements Wesley's collected works with interpretative and introductory notes, creating a definitive account of Wesley's character and contribution to the Methodist heritage
The evangelical doctrines of Charles Wesley's hymns by J. Ernest Rattenbury( Book )
