This volume, first published in German in 1976, still stands as the most definitive, comprehensive treatment of John Wesley's social ethics.

John Wesley's Social Ethics offers a balanced treatment that dispels notions that Wesley can easily be categorized as only an evangelist or only a social reformer.  It demonstrates that Wesley's theological and spiritual concerns were catalytic in his social program.  It encourages a rethinking of the importance of theology for social ethics in the Methodist tradition.
