Gooch connects modern day readers with the 18th century world of John Wesley.  This book is more then an academic or historical account of Wesley’s life.  It also offers contemporary readers to connect to their Wesleyan heritage by comparing contemporary issues to topics Wesley addressed during his day.  Wesley was deeply concerned with salvation of the individual, but Wesley also attended to needs that seem very current such as health care, poverty, slavery, and the need for growth as disciples of Christ through small group ministries.  Each chapter includes questions for reflection to help readers understand the different dimension of the Wesleyan tradition.
