WONDERFUL Jun 26, 2007
This book is a great read and VERY pertinent. It really makes you think and Belton had lots of great ideas. VERY FUNNY.
Funny without being irreverent May 12, 2007
I bought this book shortly after joining a United Methodist church. As a former southern baptist, I found this book very helpful in discerning the differences between the denominations. I've since recommended this book to several friends and family members.

I concur with Laura's analysis of this book. This is actually an introduction to UMC theology/doctrine, but it is presented in a very readable format. It describes what makes United Methodists distinctive from other denominations while allowing for diversity of belief. Buy it!
Outstanding Jul 22, 2004
Attention ALL United Methodists (whether or not you think you're confused)! This book provides exactly what the title suggests and does so in an organized, intelligent, and humorous way so I won't waste your time elaborating. Buy the book. Better yet, buy 4 copies. Give one to your church library and submit an article for the next issue of your church newsletter calling attention to the new addition. Take the 2nd copy to your Sunday School teacher and volunteer to use the book to teach the next several weeks for him/her. (I'm sure they deserve a break.) Give the 3rd copy to your youth director. (I sure wish it had been available to me as a youth.) Keep the 4th for yourself and loan it out often. I slightly disagree with the authors opinion that the "Bible Belt" is a state of mind. Perhaps, but I think we struggle with these issues much more in the south than anywhere else. Buy the book. You won't regret it.
