From the Back Cover

Is There a Way to Heaven? The great evangelist John Wesley believed there is, and he developed his theology to help people make the journey from sin to salvation. In Wesley's 'order of salvation, ' God's grace is the keynote from start to finish. The Way to Heaven is a twentieth-anniversary revision of John Wesley's Message for Today. Dr. Steve Harper presents Wesley's writings and the ideas of Wesley scholars in language that is clear and accessible but never simplistic. Written in the spirit of Wesley, here are 'plain words for plain people.' The heart of this book is a thoughtful and inspiring look at Wesley's theology of grace and its power to transform. Included are two new chapters. 'Vision and Means' explores Wesley's mission and methods, and 'To Serve the Present Age' considers the impact and relevance of his message today. In addition, an updated reading list facilitates further study, and questions at the end of each chapter stimulate personal reflection and small group discussion. Ideal as a textbook or for personal study and reflection, this book will advance your knowledge and piety as you travel 'the way to heaven.'

Harper has given us an excellent review of the theology of John Wesley, particularly as it concerns his major concern, how to get himself and those under his care to heaven. The is a clear, easy the read and understand book, presenting ideas that are not as simple as described. They are described correctly and fit for the consumption of any religious person because it was not written for the theologian, but even they may find it welcome.

This is an easy to understand overview of the theology of salvation of John Wesley. It could be improved with some form of glossary for the lay-person, some illustration, and maybe even some narrative. But, overall, if you are looking to gain a basic understanding of John Wesley, and you possess a novice understanding of theological terms, this can be a great tool for personal study, a Sunday school class, or small group.

The teaching in this work is freeing, sound, consistent, and tremendous!

Or, rather, I want to try. It struck me, as I read, how far we have strayed. I have come to the Methodist church after growing up Baptist, and despite my misgivings about some of it's practices orginally, I find myself in love with the dream of Wesley. This book helped me see some of his vision without getting overly deep (er, over my head, so to speak). At times, it feels rather like reading a book report. I found myself wanting to skim over some of the dryer parts. But, it was a worthy read, and I took some good notes for future study.

A great redition By Rev Steve Harper of the practical theology of John Wesley, in easy to understand examples of God's grace and our response. A must for understaning the basics of Methodism for young and old alike. This book has also become a corner stone for our confirmation classes. Highly recommend it.

I truly enjoyed this reading. It was an easy read, short chapters with questions and addition reading at the end of each chapter. This book went well with the online course I am taking. For the Wesleyan who wants to know more our our founding father, John Wesley, this is a must read.
