Hymns Of Praise: Charles Wesley

Description:

Meet Charles Wesley in this fascinating one-man drama

Charles Wesley penned more than 6,500 magnificient hymns. Some are among the most beloved in Christian history--“Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” "Christ The Lord Is Risen Today," and many others appear in the hymnals of every Christian denomination.

In Wesley's time, congregational hymn singing was a revolutionary idea. Anglican churches had marvelous choirs, but the congregations rarely sang. Everything changed when brothers John and Charles Wesley, on their way to Georgia, were inspired by a group of Moravians singing vibrant German hymns. John became quite fluent in German and translated many of the Moravian hymns into English.

Following his conversion, Charles often wrote a hymn every day, and the brothers published numerous hymnals. Charles' poems were often sung to popular tunes of the day. He even rewrote popular songs to give them a spiritual message. His hymns speak clearly of the theology and belief of the early Methodist movement.

You'll hear the true stories of the early days of Methodism, the events that led up to his conversion, his brother John's "Aldersgate Experience," and the astonishing events that unfolded as the Wesley brothers first began to preach--and sing--in the fields of England.

this was presented in an unexpected way. He was an excellent orator and covered a lot of information on both he and his brother.

I didn't realize this was a play when I got it. It is not particularly well filmed (it keeps showing the audience--I would have rather just focused on the performance). But it gives a lot of really good information about Charles and John Wesley. I am blessed hearing the story of Charles' Wesley life and journey to grace and salvation.
