Item description for Evangelical and Methodist by Riley B. Case...

In this volume, Riley Case tells the story of the "populist" branch of the Methodist movement in America. Drawing on a variety of sources, and focusing particularly on the twentieth century, he paints a portrait of Methodism more interested in holiness than respectability, more concerned with winning souls than building institutions, more insistent on scriptural truth than cultural relevance.

Reviews - What do customers think about Evangelical and Methodist?

Long Over Due!  May 18, 2006
Pastor Riley Case's "Evangelical & Methodist" (2004, paperback) is a book that is long over due. His history of the Good News movement within United Methodism is well documented (with 28 pages of endnotes) and poignant (I've penned dozens of remarks on every page).

For those who have worried about the dwindling numbers in the United Methodist Church (UMC), Case presents hope as well as a history of the denomination's growing evangelical reform movement. He persuasively argues that much of the UMC's demise results form the 20th century progressive (liberal) elites' strangle hold on Methodism's highest offices, general agencies and seminaries. He plainly explains that the Church's Wesleyan spirit calls for renewal.

The book's most poignant portion is chapter 11- "The Struggle for Doctrinal Integrity". Here Case considers evangelical theological and Christological components from the Scriptural and Wesleyan positions (noting that these perspectives are frequently missing from contemporary United Methodism). His quiet pronouncement is deafening! One wonders if the Church will ever hear such prophets.

Case provides considerable discussion about how to reinvigorate the UMC. He proclaims that United Methodism should be a home in the Wesleyan tradition for liberals, progressives, conservatives and evangelicals. He has little patience for "the far left" as those who only "except [the Church's] name and money" (page 202) and for "pluralism" with its legitimizing "of all sorts of deviant ideologies" (page 208). Pastor Case doesn't mince words as he calls for Church renovation.

This book is recommendable to all United Methodists, student of American religion, church history buffs and those wishing to renew their denomination. Order your copy soon.
