This is the first collection of the complete writings of Susanna Wesley, the mother of John, Charles, and Samuel Wesley, the founding fathers of Methodism. As an outstanding female figure of the seventeenth and eighteenth century, her writings should interest not only Methodists' but feminists and scholars of English social and religious history as well.
Readership: Scholars of Methodism and the Wesleys, women's studies, English history.
"Susanna Wesley should be reckoned with. Professor Wallace's work both makes that clear, and makes it possible. By publishing this body of previously unavailable material in a single volume he performs a signal service to religious, feminist, and literary studies." - N. H. Keeble, Review of English Studies
