A Christian Library

First Edition

Among his many writings, John Wesley edited and abridged a number of devotional classics and republished them in what he called A Christian Library

These “Extracts from and Abridgments of the Choicest Pieces of Practical Divinity Which Have Been Published in the English Tongue,” as Wesley subtitled them, were first published in 50 volumes in 1750. The World Methodist Museum houses the First Edition of all 50 volumes.
