John Fletcher of Madeley has long been overlooked by biographers and yet has been held in very high esteem by those who have read his works and studied his life. He is held to have been one of godliest men who ever lived in England. This reprint is of the definitive biography from 1882.
“It is a source of great joy to me to see the republication of a work such as this one. I trust that all who read this book will find their souls stirred and hearts encouraged. The life of such an eminent preacher of the gospel will not fail to challenge to emulation those who now run the race. ‘Wesley’s Designated Successor’ is an invaluable account of a truly remarkable man who, though he is dead, still speaks.”
