Item description for Making Disciples: Faith Formation in the Wesleyan Tradition (v. 1) by Sondra Matthaei...

Overview
Matthaei examines the elements of John Wesley's theology and ministry that contributed to a Wesleyan ecology of faith formation, an interconnecting network of the relationships, structures and practices that created an environment for nuturing and sustaining a holy life in communion with God and others. Insights gained from this research into John Wesley's total educational enterprise can then provide the impetus for faithful and imaginative approaches to Christian faith formation today. This is a practical and lively book that will be informative for academics and Christian educators in local churches alike.

Publishers Description

How is it that we come to know ourselves as Christians? What were the elements of John Wesley s work that contributed to spiritual formation for a Christian life, and how did these elements interrelate? Focusing on matters of formation and transformation in faith, Sondra Matthaei answers such questions in light of early Methodist practices of formation. Through research and dialogue with Wesleyan scholarship and constructive proposals related to the life of the church, this insightful study encourages faithful and imaginative approaches to spiritual formation in churches today.

The focus of this book is on matters of formation and transformation in faith. The book answers the question "How do we come to know ourselves as Christian?" and analyzes this question in light of early Methodist practices of formation and an ecology of education within the Methodist movement. The reader will come to understand John Wesley's idea of character formation and moral transformation. The reader will understand how Christian and vocation are shaped through spiritual formation and will understand the role of structures and relationships (family, school, church, etc.) in spiritual formation.
