Abstract

This article reexamines the systematic nature of John Wesley's theology, drawing on recent reconceptions of theology as a praxis-oriented reflection. Gerhard Sauter is used as a model of these reconceptions. Central to these new conceptions of theology is the question whether one's praxis-related reflection is guided and unified by a central orienting concept. Such a concept is clearly evident in Wesley's theological reflection--the concept of responsible grace. This concept is clarified by a study of Wesley's doctrine of grace. This concept exercised a critical role in Wesley's other doctrinal affirmations and distinctions.
