Preparation of John Wesley Letters, 1756-1765

I finished editing a volume of John Wesley’s letters for the on-going Bicentennial Edition in the last year. This will be volume 27 in the series. Yesterday I sent in part of the back cover description: “The correspondence presented in this third of seven planned volumes of Wesley’s Letters illuminates critical developments in the Wesleyan movement in the period between 1756 and 1765 including very significant rifts between John Wesley and his brother Charles and between John Wesley and his wife Mary, Wesley’s attempts to deal with radical enthusiasts and separatists (such as Thomas Maxfield) within the Methodist movement, his relationship to Greek Orthodox leader Gerasimos (Erasmus) Avlonites, and Wesley’s activities related to the Seven Years War.”
