Read full description of the books:
This book was a very interesting look into the life of Susannah Wesley and her family. I greatly enjoyed it.
What I Liked: I haven't read many books about people who lived in this time period, so that fact alone was intriguing to me. I've also heard a lot about John and Charles Wesley, the sons of Susannah and Samuel Wesley and I have sung several hymns that Charles wrote, so I was greatly looking forward to getting a peek into the life of this family and what I saw I must say was...interesting.
Susannah's married life appeared to be one of misery. I'm sure it had it's good moments, but being married to such a strong-willed and opinionated man who held the view that his wife was only there to serve him made for a very sad and unfulfilling marriage that wasn't exactly Biblical--where it says for husbands to treat their wives with love and as equally valuable in the family of Christ. But, I know the relationship between Samuel and Susannah was typical for that day and age, but it served as a good reminder to me to make sure I marry a man that I can respect, because Samuel was not a man of exceptional character. He was constantly in debt because of foolish choices and he seemed to always be looking for opportunities to better himself and his own situation, at times leaving his family in the dust. (Samuel was not all bad; he definitely had his good, loving, kind moments and those were quite touching.)
Even through Susannah's difficult married life, the desire she showed to teach her children in the ways of the Lord was inspiring. I'm thankful for the godly influence she had over her sons, Charles and John, for I am sure that at least some of their Godly character was encouraged at a young age by their Godly mother.
It saddened me that Susannah did not come to a true understanding of salvation until the very end of her life. Her Christian life was based more on works then the grace of God through Jesus Christ's sacrifice for us. I am glad, though, that she came to a realization of the gospel before she died and is now rejoicing in heaven. Praise God.
What I Didn't Like: There wasn't anything that I disliked about this book. This author did a very good job with this biography in giving us a peek into the life of the Wesley family.
I give this book 4/5 stars for a good and interesting biography on the life of Susannah Wesley.
