This resource displays the variety of ways in which the Wesleys' concept of 'the religion of the heart' (that is, the affective dimension of Christian faith) has been understood and embodied in the Methodist tradition. The author offers some practical suggestions on how a livelier piety, a more deeply felt faith, can be fostered in local congregations, without leading into anti-intellectualism, fanatical emotionalism, or maudlin sentimentality. This part approaches theology, worship, preaching, pastoral care, and educational ministry.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a welcome and thorough study of Wesley's 'religion of the heart'... * Proceedings Of The Wesley Historical Society *
There is much good meat here...I commend this book to readers who want to explore the heart of our tradition springing up in very varied styles in the "Many Methodisms," especially in the black and very divergent feminist forms. This is a well-produced set of essays... * Methodist Recorder *
These 11 essays trace the development of religions of the heart, especially in the United States. They trace the historical, social, and cultural dimensions of the German Pietists, the African-American tradition, the Holiness movement, and the experiences of women in American Methodism. They also consider the state of heart religions today, centering the discussion on issues like preaching, education, the passions, faith and grace, and orthopathy. Contributors include ministers, philosophers, theologians, and behavioral scientists. * Reference and Research Book News *
