    One thought on “Susanna Wesley

    1. Ed on said:

      I really enjoyed this small biography. The author did a great job doing research when there was very little available. He mostly read old letters between Susanna and her husband and children. Susanna bore 19 children in 19 years and 9 of these died in infancy. However she had a strong character and took an interest into each surviving child training them in the Lord. If women today think that they have a rough time then they should read this book.

    2. Tiffany Spencer on said:

      Wow, how different life was then! Susanna Wesley was a strong woman, a devoted wife, and a loving mother. She had 19 children, only 9 of which survived to adulthood. Mr. Dallimore expounds on the home life of Susanna and her husband Samuel as well as several different accounts of the growth and adulthood of their children. He gives a good view into her spiritual understanding and her late-in-life possible salvation experience.

      I really wanted to learn more about Susanna Wesley, so this book fulfilled that need. That said, it was written with a little too much speculation and sentences that began with "it can be assumed" or "we can deduct that"

    4. Karen Maskarinec on said:

      Easy reading about a very inspirational woman, and the hard life she lived. I said in a "halfway" review that the author did not include footnotes, but that is not true; he did, but as I observed, he prefaces many statements with stuff like "no doubt" or "we can be certain" when he has just mentioned contradictions, and SELDOM explains HOW we can be sure. I found this to be irritating. I'd rate the book 2 stars, because it wasn't bad, but neither was it great.

    5. Elizabeth Finney on said:

      Not a great bio. I felt the author drew conclusions without making it clear HOW he came to those conclusions. He seemed torn between the sad events of her life (husband constantly in debt, burying nine children) and praising her as the mother of John and Charles Wesley. Her daughters' lives were for the most part heart-breaking. Now I'm interested to read more about John and Charles, and certainly I give thanks for not having been born in those times (1669-1742).

      I read this book very quickly, and it held my attention. I didn't realize how much hardship she experienced.

    7. Chuck Bonadies on said:

      Did you know that Susanna's children didn't think she was saved until a few years before her death? Not Dallimore's best biography, but nevertheless a fun read.CB
