Description
Part of the video series titled "English Hymns That Shaped Our Faith." The Wesley brothers, John and Charles, are legendary in the history of Protestantism. In the eighteenth century, they provided needed invigoration to the Anglican Church of their day, and the Methodist and other Wesleyan churches date their origins to them. While John preached a message of holiness and faithfulness to Scripture, Charles devoted most of his time to church music, becoming probably the most prolific writer of spiritual poetry in history. Filmed entirely in England, in the places where the stories happened, Professor of Church History Jerry Rushford gives the background of this giant of hymnody.
