This book describes and examines the Wesleyan attitude toward and programs with the poor from the time of John Wesley to the present. The chapters consist of revised versions of ten presentations given at a major symposium on "The Wesleys and the Poor: The Legacy and Development of Methodist Attitudes Toward Poverty, 1730-1999," in October 1999 at Southern Methodist University. The contributors represent the best of current thinking on a broad spectrum of concerns, including historical, theological, musical, institutional, and pastoral issues related to poverty and the church in the Wesleyan heritage.
