In this commentary on John Wesley's "Notes on the New Testament", James MacCormack has provided a readable and, at the same time, instructive guide to the seminal work of the founder of Methodism. As the author points out, Wesley's own estimation of the value of the "Notes" was very high, and his directions to his preachers and societies concerning their use were clear. Indeed, he wrote them for all who have "a desire to save their souls". The "Notes" became one of Methodism s standards of doctrine in 1763, and to this day the "Notes" and the "Sermons" (now 44 in one volume) are required reading for Methodist preachers. As the Constitution of the Methodist Church in Ireland states "The doctrines of the evangelical faith which Methodism has held from the beginning and still holds are based upon the divine revelation recorded in the Holy Scriptures". "Notes on the New Testament", which is the record of the evangel, have a natural place in such a constitution. In this work, James MacCormack invites us, both general reader and specialist, to revisit what can truly be regarded as one of the classics of religious literature.
