In this definitive study, first published in 1960, John Deschner examines John Wesley's understanding of the person & work of Christ. Recognizing that Wesley does not offer a systematic theology, the author probes the characteristic emphases & tensions presented in Wesley's works, primarily in the writings that constitute the doctrinal standards of Wesleyanism. Deschner's twofold approach (1) seeks to uncover Wesley's intention in what he says about Jesus Christ, and (2) views the Christology as the developmental result of theological conversion occurring in Wesley's life. The author considers Wesley's perspective on the prophetic, priestly, and kingly offices of Christ in the contest of Christ as Immanuel ---"God with us".
