This little book is
John Wesleys most definitive explanation and defense of the doctrine of Entire
Sanctification. It was tremendously important to Wesley and the early
Methodists, but over the ensuing years changes were made in the formatting of
the text. Presumably these changes were intended to render it more readable to
the audience in each era for which such alterations were made. As readership
changed with the passing years and more changes were made to accommodate each
generations usage, the original manuscript became festooned with modifications
that moved outside Wesleys usage and style. But in A Plain Account of
Christian Perfection one must exercise caution. As H.E. Schmul warned, even
a slight change in punctuation may alter the intent of Wesleys original text.
Correcting this manuscript bore out Dr. Schmuls observation. Therefore an
extant copy of the Fifth Edition has been the resort for this volume, as
Printed by J. PARAMORE, at the Foundry, Moorfields: And sold at the New

Preaching-Houses in Town and Country, 1783. (From the original title page.) (#5843 / 110 pages) Trade paperback.
