Item description for Reclaiming the Wesleyan Tradition: John Wesley's Sermons for Today by Douglas M. Strong, Sarah Babylon Dorrance & Robert P. McDonald-Walker...
Overview Concerned that even Methodists don't really appreciate the basic tenets of John Wesley's theology, a group of Methodist pastors and professors crafted this well-written introduction to his work. Readers will find this study challenging and rewarding as they explore everything from humankind's creation in the image of God all the way through sin, grace, justification, and the riches of spiritual rebirth and sanctification. While it sounds like a difficult undertaking, this program is so well-conceived that it draws the readers in. An excellent structure provides daily assignments in reading and writing about the sermon. The authors supplement each sermon with clarifying analyses of the theme, and provide a wealth of helpful notes, hymns, and prayers. Best approached in a group, this study will generate hours of theological discussion and open portals for deep spiritual growth.

Rediscover theological riches! Apr 10, 2008
Reclaiming the Wesleyan Tradition offers a short course in the practical teachings of 18th century British preacher John Wesley. Instead of spending time writing abstract theology, Wesley's theological insights are found in his sermons, which have not been the easiest pieces of literature to read since they are written in the voice of an 18th century Anglican priest. The authors of this book make the language real, providing commentary, guidance, and a most important glossary. They also suggest daily readings and ways to engage in the study within a small group, which is a very Wesleyan approach as well. My group and I gained fresh insights into our own lives of Christian faith from this 18th century preacher.
