Product Overview

John William Fletcher (1729-1785), English divine, was born at Nyon in Switzerland, his original name being de la Flechre. Fletcher was a contemporary of John Wesley (the founder of Methodism), a key interpreter of Wesleyan theology in the 18th century, and one of Methodism''s first great theologians. Of French Huguenot stock, his given name was actually Jean Guillaume de la Flechre. Fletcher was renowned in the Britain of his day for his piety and generosity; when asked if he had any needs, he responded, .,." I want nothing but more grace." He often preached with John Wesley and became known as a fervent supporter of the revival. Refusing the wealthy living of Dunham, he accepted the humble one of Madeley, where for twenty- five years (1760-1785) he lived and worked with unique devotion and zeal. His biography, Fletcher of Madeley, by Margaret Allen was published in 1905.
