John Wesley is a fiery preacher who is stirring up the people on the streets of London. One day, while peddling his father's wares, young Robert Upton meets Wesley and his life is changed forever.

At first Robert doesn't know what to think of Wesley and his fellow Methodists. He even helps some other boys break up an evening church meeting by beating loudly on old pots and pans. But soon Robert sees how Wesley's preaching changes the lives of many people. He hears people talk about being "converted," but isn't sure what it means.

Robert and his father start going to Wesley's meetings whenever they can. Gradually, Robert begins to understand what Wesley's preaching is all about. As he allows God to work in his life, Robert finds that his own heart, like Wesley's, is strangely warmed.

"Louise A. Vernon gives us a glimpse of what John Wesley was like and the impact he had on 18th century England. We see Wesley through the eyes of Robert Upton, a poor English boy of ten or eleven whose father becomes a follower of the hated Methodist heresy. An interesting story about a man with whom every Christian young person should be familiar." Christian Teacher

"A good historical fiction about an interesting era." -- Mennonite Brethren Herald
