Beautifully illustrated children’s story based on the life of John Wesley as seen by his horse ‘Gospel’.
One of the most enduring images of John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, is astride his horse as he travelled the country to spread the word of the gospel. But what about the horse?
This children’s book is beautifully illustrated by Leah Heming and tells the story of some of the key places and events in Wesley’s mission through the eyes of his horse ‘Gospel’ including his sermon on the beach at St Ives, his hostile reception in Salisbury and the riot that greeted Wesley in Wednesbury, Staffordshire, his visit to Oxford University and Newgate Prison. Suitable for children aged 3 to 8 years.
