A Christian Library by John Wesley

Among his many writings, John Wesley edited and abridged a number of devotional classics and republished them in what he called A Christian Library. These "Extracts from and Abridgments of the Choicest Pieces of Practical Divinity Which Have Been Published in the English Tongue," as Wesley subtitled them, were first published in 50 volumes in 1750. The present digital collection was scanned from the 1821 edition of these classics, published in 30 volumes.
