What makes a Methodist? How can we re-ignite the spark of genius that motivated such commitment in our cloud of witnesses?
The essence of Methodism's genius resides in two famous Wesleyan mantras: 'heart strangely warmed' (inward experiences with a fire in the heart) and 'the world is our parish' (outward experiences with waterfalls of cutting-edge intelligence). For Wesley, internal combustion, the former, led to external combustion, the latter.
In the 18th century, Methodists in general (and in their younger years, the Wesley brothers themselves) were accused of being too 'sexy.' What else could all those 'love feasts' and 'strangely warmed hearts' be about? Why else were all those women in positions of leadership? With this book the author hopes to bring back to life some of Methodism's sexiness so that our current reproduction crisis can be reversed.
