"There is scarcely any doctrine in the whole compass of 1 revelation, which is of deeper importance than this." Such is John Wesley's comment concerning the providence of God. Wesley, himself, had a keen interest in providence. In his Journals alone he makes no less than forty-eight direct references to providence along with many inferences. These, along with many more references in his other writings, show a lifelong concern with the subject.

The purpose of this study was to make a thorough investigation of Wesley• s doctrine of divine providence in relation to man. Then, on the basis of this investigation, the author sought to determine the ultimate end of his doctrine of providence and its operation with regard to man in the light of its ultimate end.
