Murray is largely a fan of Wesley. He writes as a Calvinist (as Banner of Truth books tend to be) and so he wrestles with Wesley's antagonism towards Calvinism. He believes that some of Wesley's outlook is determined by a misunderstanding of the nature of mainline Calvinism. He recognises Wesley's organisational genius and incredible passion. He has many positive remarks on the nature of the man. However, he also portrays Wesley as a man who neglected his wife (he did not hear of her death until days after her funeral) who could be mean-spirited when engaged in theological disputes.
As well as speaking of Wesley, Murray details something of the life of three other Methodist preachers. Of particular interest is Gideon Ouseley who worked in Ireland. Reading about these men fires you up for mission and challenges you to be more engaged in prayer. I found these lives to be truly inspiring.
