Item description for A Wesleyan Spiritual Reader by Rueben P. Job...
Overview What can we learn from John Wesley that will help us to better know and serve God in Christ. Ruben Job answers that question in this 26-week devotional experience. Each week, a major theme in John Wesley's writing is explored through scripture, carefully selected Wesley quotes, and a reflection by the auhtor. These elements are woven into a pattern for daily prayer and reflection. While the book is intended as a personal spiritual resource, those who teach and preach will find the brief, thematically selected Wesley quotations worthy of repeated reference.
A Wesleyan Spiritual Reader provides resources for a 26-week devotional experience.
