About the Author

Julie Ann Lunn is Lecturer in Practical and Social Theology at Nazarene Theological College, Manchester, UK. She teaches in the areas of Practical Theology, Pastoral Theology, and Christian Spirituality, with a particular interest in Wesley Studies. She is also an ordained Methodist minister.


'This is an important contribution to study of the Wesleyan tradition and of Christian spirituality broadly. Lunn joins those seeking to help Charles Wesley's distinctive emphases on the Christian life take their place alongside the emphases of his brother John. Drawing deftly upon his hymns, sermons, letters, and journal, Lunn illuminates the centrality of resignation in Charles Wesley's understanding of Christian holiness or sanctification-not just as one virtue among others; but as the basic orientation conducive to Christian growth. Highly recommended.'

- Randy L. Maddox, William Kellon Quick Professor of Wesleyan and Methodist Studies, Duke Divinity School, USA

"This book automatically commends itself to admirers of Charles Wesley, but Lunn's spirited retrieval of the resignation theme and her success in setting it in its wider context should also bring the subject to the attention of a wider readership in the areas of theology, pastoral work, and spirituality."

- Fred Sanders, Torrey Honors Institute at Biola University, USA
