The Wesley Works Editorial Project was launched in 1960 to provide a critical edition of the writings of John Wesley. Frank Baker was appointed Editor-in Chief in 1969. Richard P. Heitzenrater served as General Editor from 1986–2014. Randy L. Maddox is the current General Editor.
The first four volumes emerging from this project appeared as the Oxford Edition of The Works of John Wesley (1975–83). The directors then gratefully accepted the offer of Abingdon Press to assume publishing responsibility, and the name was changed to The Bicentennial Edition of the Works of John Wesley.
