The Wesley raps were no more extraordinary, as described, than those at the Belfast circle; rather less so, in fact.** As to the other noises, the crashing among the bottles, which, however, were not broken, is rather specially interesting to me, for a friend of mine has frequently heard the same sort of thing in his own house; a sound as if all the crockery in the house were smashed all at once, yet nothing is found broken.

The family of John and Charles Wesley, the founders of Methodism, experienced over a period of a few months, the phenomena of a poltergeist. Author Wright has compounded letters from the family to each other discussing the experiences and the impact of the haunting on their lives.

Included are brief sections of John Wesley's journal as he notes his adventures exploring paranormal events and his interviews with those who experienced them.

For lovers of paranormal mysteries, the book is a fun read. For those wishing to explore the interests and thoughts of John Wesley, the book adds a little known perspective on the great evangelist of what became known as the Great Awakening.
