The theology "de jour" orginates with John Calvin, with an emphasis on the elect and "sovereign will of God.  So much Calvinism saturates our air that Christians may not know there is another way of thinking about their faith, one well represented by Wesley. But no matter what people think, many act in ways that promise to change the world by offering grace and hope but also food and shelter to hurting people. In other words, they might believe like Calvinists but they are live like Wesleyans. So it behooves us to learn more about Wesley.This book is not intended to put down Calvin but to point to significant difference between Calvin and Wesley. Each wrote about major tenets of the church: who God is and what God's will is for us; the place of Scripture; the atonement of Christ; the role of human responsibility; the work of God’s grace, the relation of the church and world; and how these beliefs can connect to how people practice their faith. But Calvin and Wesley were different and following their prescriptions will lead us down different paths.
