Wesley was a lover of the Bible. He believed in divine inspiration, religious authority, and truthfulness. In the Preface to his Sermons, Wesley talked about the importance of the Bible, especially for the sake of salvation, and he famously described himself as homo unius libri (Latin, "A man of one book"): "I want to know one thing, the way to heaven-- how to land safe on that happy shore.   Often, Wesley had a book open in front of him as he rode.

Maddox notes that Wesley “used 1 John for his sermon text much more frequently (comparative to the number of verses in the book) than any other biblical book.” Wesley said 1 John — “We love [God] because he first loved us” — is “the sum of the whole gospel.”.   The quote appears to come from a book entitled, How To Pray: The Best of John Wesley on Prayer, where it is attributed to Wesley. I'm not sure where the editor or compiler of this book came up with this quote, but it is false to say it came from Wesley. First off, it should be noted that the language of this quote is very modern.

In Wesley, Wesleyans, and Reading Bible as Scripture (Green and Watson, ed.s.), Maddox observes how John Wesley himself read the Bible, with an eye to hinting at how we might follow Wesley's lead.
