Spiritual Literacy

Spiritual Literacy in John Wesley's Methodism: Reading, Writing, and Speaking to Believe (Studies in Rhetoric & Religion)

Michael Cartwright has highly recommended the above book to understand more fully the nature of early Methodism.  Burton's argument is that John Wesley wanted to make ordinary Methodist men and women readers, writers, and public speakers because he understood the powerful role of language in spiritual formation (p. 1).  I look forward to reading it and learning what it may mean for ministry today.
