During this spiritual crisis, John Wesley was directly influenced by Pietism. The Wesley poetry has stood the test of time, and is more in demand than it was years ago. The volume is enriched by original notes, brief but illustrative; it is adorned with a beautiful portrait of the Rev. Charles Wesley, and it contains facsimiles of the old title-pages; which, together with the table of contents, the index, the headings to each poem and to every page, and the original.
