The theological concerns of Charles Wesley are expressed primarily through his repertory of over 9,000 hymns and sacred poems. They include inquiries into the meaning of the Church's sacred rites, festivals, and seasons (e.g., Holy Communion, Baptism, Advent, Christmas, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost) and a host of other concerns, such as conversion, sanctification, perfection, holiness, grace, and love. This volume prepares the reader to read Wesley's poetry, showing the plethora of literary, theological, and societal influences on his thought and writing; and brings together a collection of hymns and sacred poems that are representative of his theological perspectives. The reader is given the opportunity to become better equipped to grasp the meaning of Wesley's profound lyrical theology and its implications for contemporary theology and life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"S.T. Kimbrough not only presents a collection of Charles Wesley's hymns organised theologically, but he also gives guidance on how to read Wesley's hymns as theology. ....Kimbrough can help Anglicans gain from the wisdom that Wesley had to share." -Sarah Heaner Lancaster, Modern Believing, Vol. 57 Iss. 3, August 2016 "There are useful and informative essays on the historical, ecclesial, and theological contexts of Wesley's writing, historical biography, and a scriptural index for the collection. But what makes this book more interesting than many reference works is the seriousness with which Kimbrough takes congregational singing, in a global context." -Jennifer H. Smith, Wesley and Methodist Studies, Vol. 8 No. 2, 2016
