Sermons on Several Occasions

by John Wesley

Summary

Sermons on Several Occasions is a collection of 141 sermons compiled into five series. In his first series, John Wesley presents what the Bible says concerning the way to heaven. In his second series, Wesley sheds light on several important Christian doctrines and practices. The first two series were edited and organized for publication by John Wesley himself. And while one can assume that Wesley is responsible for all of the sermons in this book, it is important to note the circumstances under which the final three series were published. Unlike the first two series, the latter three series were published without Wesley's knowledge. Consequently, the final sermons are not arranged by topic, and it is possible that some of them are not Wesley's own compositions. Even so, these additional sermons are very valuable contributions to the collection as a whole. The final three series contain sermons on a wide variety of interesting topics, including love, death, faith, and even natural disaster. This collection, especially the first two series, contains Wesley's most humble and honest attempts to teach truth to those who seek it.
