Christian Library

Among his many writings,
John Wesley
edited and abridged a number of devotional classics and republished them in what he called
A Christian Library

These "Extracts from and Abridgments of the Choicest Pieces of Practical Divinity Which Have Been Published in the English Tongue," as Wesley subtitled them, were first published in 50 volumes in 1750. The present digital collection was scanned from the 1821 edition of these classics, published in 30 volumes.

Thanks to Drs. Stanley Crow of Boise, Idaho, and Herbert McGonigle of the
Nazarene Theological College, Didsbury, England for allowing the Wesley
Center to scan their personal copies of the these priceless volumes. And
thanks to Dr. Randy Maddox of Duke University for allowing us to use his
index of Wesley's sources and his expanded table of contents.
