New Volumes Explore Private Letters of Charles Wesley
The Oxford University Press has published the first in two volumes looking at all 700 surviving letters of Charles Wesley.
Wesley co-founded Methodism with his brother, John, and wrote scores of hymns, including the ever popular "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".
The first volume of The Letters of Charles Wesley focuses on his correspondence between 1727 and 1756. The second volume, to be published at a later date, will include letters up to the year of his death in 1788.
