Product Description

Details

The story of John Wesley's love affair with Grace Murray and the role that Charles Wesley played in preventing their marriage has long fascinated historians. Most have tended to view John as the victim and been hugely critical of the behaviour and actions of the others involved. This book shows that this is unfair and sets out what happened between John and Grace within the context of her entire life.

What emerges in Gary Best's new study of Grace Murray is a picture of a remarkable woman – a pioneer female class leader and preacher within the early Methodist movement. It shows how throughout her life Grace had to come to terms not only with the doubts and fears that can beset Christians at times, but also with the prejudices of her day.

The author is a well-known Methodist historian. He has written a number of books, including a very well-received biography of Charles Wesley. He is also an author of detective stories, one of which,’The Jacobite Murders’, features Charles. Since 2009 he has been the Warden of the New Room, Bristol.
