Book Description:
The book has two basic objectives and is accordingly organized into two main parts. Part I describes and analyzes the various ways in which the Wesleys' concept of 'the religion of the heart' (that is, the affective dimension of Christian faith) has been understood and embodied in the Methodist tradition. The six historical essays of this section show that although heart religion has been a central feature of the Wesleyan movement as a whole, disagreements over how it should be expressed and fostered have caused or contributed to some of the schisms within that movement. Part II seeks to retrieveand rehabilitate the original Wesleyan concept of heart religion and to demonstrate its relevance for the contemporary church. The five constructive essays of this section show how 'vital piety' can be fostered in local Methodist and Holiness congregations today, but also how aberrant forms of this, such as anti intellectualism, fanatical emotionalism, and maudlin sentimentality, can be avoided. Special attention is given to the role of heart religion in worship, preaching, pastoral care, educational ministry, and programs for spiritual and moral formation
