Analyzing Blake's works theologically through a wide-angled lens that encompasses the major religious movements he addressed in his art, Jesse concludes Blake was a theological moderate who defended an evangelical faith akin to the Methodism of John Wesley. She argues that, once we collate the different messages he constructed for each of his target audiences, we find him advocating a system that would have been recognized by his contemporaries as Wesleyan in character.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[T]his is an interesting and provocative book.... Jesse has opened up important and unexpected areas of inquiry that are likely to yield a greater understanding of Blake's polyphonic work in a heterogeneous religious milieu. * Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly *
Jennifer Jesse has written an accessible introduction to William Blake. It encompasses an admirable assembly of critical learning and acumen, assessing the achievement of several generations of Blake scholars. The book will be a reference point for all those seeking a profound consideration of issues related to Blake's work and its contexts. -- Robert W. Rix, assistant professor, Department of Culture and Global Studies, University of Aalborg
