Susanna Wesley

The Complete Writings

Edited by Charles Wallace, Jr.

With this publication of her complete works, Susanna Wesley gains a public voice for the first time. Reading her letters, spiritual diary, and longer treatises, historians, theologians, and literary scholars maty now assess her reputation as more than merely the mother of Methodism's founders. A well-read, consientious, and expressive writer, she used intellect to stand up against entrenched 17th- and 18th-century patriarchy, even when represented by her father, her husband, and her sons.
