This is a collection of 141 sermons preached by John Wesley (including several by his brother Charles), compiled and divided into five separate series. The First series, published in 1771, contain 53 sermons given by Wesley during his initial years of preaching and evangelism (with the Moravian Brethren, and from 1739 on revival tours throughout Britain and Ireland with George Whitefield); these date from 1738 to 1747. The Second series, published in 1788, consists of 55 sermons which first appeared in the Arminian Magazine. The remaining three series contain 33 additional sermons or discourses, some of which where published by Wesley in other forms, others of which were never intended for publication. These sermons reflect the full range of Wesley's mature thought. According to the title of the first series, these sermons are defined “as constituting, with Mr. Wesley's Notes on the New Testament, the Standard Doctrines of the Methodist Connexion”.
