The Supernatural Occurrences of John Wesley


The Supernatural Occurrences of John Wesley

"The Supernatural Occurrences of John Wesley" is a non-fiction book written by American author Daniel R. Jennings and published in 2005 by Sean Multimedia. Relying heavily upon actual quotations from the writings of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, Jennings presents various types of supernatural phenomena as they were recorded by Wesley. These phenomena included visions, dreams, miraculous healings, instances of persons passing out during Wesley’s sermons, supernatural answers to prayer, the unusual fates of some of Wesley’s critics, and cases of demon possession.

Historical Context

The book cannot be truly understood without understanding some of the historical context regarding Wesley and his influence. Two groups today trace their heritage back to Wesley. Both of these groups have developed differing ideas regarding Wesley and his attitude towards miracles. These groups are the more cautious (when it comes to miracles) Methodist/Holiness Churches and the more accepting Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches. Each of these groups has contended that Wesley was more like their own. The book claims that both sides have molded Wesley into their own image and that he would have fallen into a middle position between the two.
