About the Book
This book is about justification and sanctification in  John Wesley’s theology. And while Wesley remained close to the sixteenth-century Reformers in his treatment of  justification, he goes beyond both Martin Luther and  John Calvin on his doctrine of sanctification. For Wesley, sanctification takes place after justification. Sanctification is a journey in spiritual growth, leading to “the full measure of the stature of Christ.” And all Christians are on this journey, beginning with the new birth in  Christ, until the end of their earthly pilgrimage.
