From Everlasting to Everlasting

John Wesley on Eternity and Time


Elfriede K. Naglee

This book treats the theology of John Wesley, Anglican priest and founder of Methodism. His views of eternity and time are described and analyzed. Though not a systematic theologian, he possessed a systematic theology, inherited from the Bible, Rabbinic sources, Patristic authors, and classical thinkers of the Western Church from the Protestant Reformation to the Enlightenment. His depiction of time forms a PILGRIM'S PROGRESS of man's movement towards eternity a parte post. Special topics treated: The being and existence of God; the Creation; nature of souls; angels; salvation history; and eschatology.
Contents: From everlasting to everlasting treats John Wesley's understanding of God in eternity, the creation in time, and God's plan to consummate time and creation in Christ by granting them eternity a parte post.
