Biography of the ‘Mother of Methodism’, Susanna Wesley.
Both John and Charles Wesley were considerably influenced by their mother Susanna. She was a gifted, intelligent woman whose spiritual strength enabled her not only to cope with family circumstances that would have crushed most women but also to communicate her faith to her children, to the people round her, and to later generations through her writings. This book captures her role not only as a beloved daughter, faithful wife, and loving mother, but also as a preacher and ‘the mother of Methodism’.
