great info Jul 16, 2007
This book was exactly what I was looking for. I found my answers. The book was new and arrived fast.
Excellent Read Jul 14, 2007
Good book for anyone, Christian or not. Well written theology on the Methodist religion.
When are they gonna show up? Oct 16, 2004
I have read a number of introductions to the Methodist Church/doctrine/history type books, and I really think that "Meet the Methodists" may be the worst one. I didn't find much in it that clearly represented any Methodist beliefs as they are taught by Wesley and the Church. What I did find was a sort of fuzzy Liberal American Protestantism that has little to do with the mainstream of Wesleyanism. You would do much better to read "John Wesley's Message Today" by Lovett Weems Jr. OR "Eight Life-Enriching Practices of United Methodists" by Henry H. Knight III OR "A Pocket Story of John Wesley" by Charles A. Sauer (that last one is more like a glorified pamphlet but it is a very good concise introduction to the Wesleyan revival).
You won't meet anyone! Apr 14, 2004
As an active Methodist, a devotee of John Wesley, and a reader of many tomes on this denomination, I found this book poor on almost every score. You won't get to know any great Methodists well from this book. You also won't learn much about Methodist doctrine.
You will get a watered-down, highly liberal slant on what the United Methodist Church is up to today, with a little skewed history tossed in. If that's what you want, order it. If you want to find out about Wesley, order a biography or his own writings instead. If you want to learn about Methodist Doctrine, read the nice little volume of that title by Campbell.
Sharp Little Book Feb 15, 2004
This is an excellent introduction to the history and beliefs of Methodism. For anyone who wants a good introduction to John Wesley and the Methodists, this is it. I've used it to teach new-member classes and have found it to be very helpul!
