Will John break all the rules and take his message outside the church walls to the needy and outcast?

John Wesley: The Man and His Mission — Journey throughout England and follow the story of one of the most influential people who ever lived. From a childhood upbringing in the small town of Epworth in the north of England to a scholarly education at Oxford University, and from humble beginnings in Bristol to an influential base in London, John Wesley’s impact is still felt, though not completely recognized, today. From an early age, John Wesley had a calling on this life to serve. Throughout every phase of his life, Wesley was a man of influence and he was recognized as a natural leader. His dramatic rediscovery of the biblical message of God’s grace offered freely to all led him outside the walls of the church to preach to the masses. Discover the makings of a man who traveled the length and breadth of England more than any other, who was able to inspire the poor, the middle class, and the leaders of his day, and who is widely regarded as one of the most persuasive figures in world history. The work of John Wesley spread throughout the world and today, hundreds of years after his death, still influences social justice, politics, and religion around the world. This beautifully produced documentary, hosted by Wesley expert Keith Garner and shot at key locations, provides a comprehensive view of John Wesley’s life and legacy. Bonus Features on the DVD: John Wesley's interactive timeline and historical events, John Wesley sermons delivered by Keith Garner.
Wesley Country (BOOK) — A Pictorial History Based on John Wesley’s Journal, compiled by Richard Bewes. 9.5" x 12.5", hard cover. John Wesley was born on June 17th, 1703 at Epworth, Lincolnshire and died in his 89th year on March 2nd, 1791. During the course of his long and active life he covered almost a quarter of a million miles in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland by horse. This made him by far the greatest traveler of his day within the British Isles. However, this book is not just about John Wesley and his travels but also a vivid picture of England during the Georgian era, enhanced by over 250 wood cuts, wood and steel engravings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries as well as 16 plates and many coats of arms of important places. The layout and treatment of script gives the book a natural period flavor. John Wesley's journals have been called "the most amazing record of human exertion ever penned by man," and great pleasure will be given to the reader in observing Wesley’s reflections on society in the many cities, towns and villages he visited. The treatment in this book is geographical with each section chronologically arranged, e.g. his seven visits to Bristol recorded here span a period of fifty years, giving us an eyewitness account of changing England among all classes of people. Another interesting feature of his journal is the quotations, descriptions and meetings between John Wesley and famous people of his time; to name but a few — Dr. Samuel Johnson, George Whitfield, William Wilberforce, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, William Pitt and Thomas Gray. We also have at the beginning of each section in this book a brief but illuminating historical background to over 200 cities, towns and villages which is especially helpful as a backcloth in appreciating John Wesley’s travels. 120 pages.
The Great Awakening — Nearly 100 years after the Pilgrim’s landed at Plymouth Rock, the New England colonists had largely traded the Christian ideals of their fore-bearers for the gods of material success. But then the Great Awakening swept through New England and the other British colonies bringing about a powerful spiritual renewal. Through the use of extensive source material, unique still images, and interviews with history scholars, this documentary traces the origins of the Great Awakening and follows its progression throughout the colonies. The DVD celebrates the radical and lasting changes brought about by this movement of God’s Spirit while promoting the need for spiritual awakening in our time. Includes Optional English subtitles.
