A Plain Account of
Christian Perfection

John Wesley

This book is an account of John Wesley’s journey to understanding the doctrine of Christian perfection. Perfection is, according to Wesley, “purity of intention, dedicating all the life to God,” In this book, he gives a numbered list, in chronological order, of the steps he took toward grasping the doctrine. He concludes that the belief is based on Matthew 22.36-40 (“‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ Jesus replied: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself'”). Perfect love is the basis of Wesley’s perfection doctrine, and it comes only through sanctification by grace alone.   (via CCEL)

  1. Love all of these, but sorely wish our communities were also mindful of such profound luminaries as Saint Isaak the Syrian, Saint Theophan the Recluse, Saint Maximos the Confessor, the Cappadocians, etc. May it be blessed.
