Reviews - What do customers think about United Methodist Questions, United Methodist Answers: Exploring Christian Faith?
nice little book answers alot of Methodist questions Apr 5, 2010
Good to have around for the curious to pick up, find some quesions and answers and ponder. Might even help out in new member classes and for the young Methodists around us.
Good, concise, introductory resource Dec 7, 2009
I picked this book as the basis of a five-week small group study class I led at my Church, the class titled, "Are You Smarter than a 5th-Grade Methodist?" The book was a useful resource. Its brevity is both an attribute and a weakness. Being so concise, it flirts with superficiality. In his effort to strike a peppy jocular tone, author Joyner at times comes off as silly and forced. One could do worse, though, and it is a good introduction on the Methodist Church.

United Methodist Questions, United Methodist Answers Very rewarding as I reviewed the questions, then read Bible references, and Answers made clearer. You may skip around and go where your interest leads you.
Joyner hits a "homerun" again! Sep 27, 2007
Joyner hits a homerun again with this Question and Answer style book from a United Methodist perspective. This is a well-balanced, thoughtful, yet very practical exposition of United Methodist beliefs and practices. I have given several of these to churches and individuals who need to be reminded of our United Methodist roots and ethos. A great study book or a primer for Pastor/Parish Relations Committees and church boards.
