Item description for Polity, Practice, and the Mission of The United Methodist Church: 2006 Edition by Thomas E. Frank...

Overview
"Commissioned by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry for use in United Methodist doctrine/polity/history courses." This in-depth analysis of the connection between United Methodist polity and theology addresses ways in which historical developments have shaped--and continue to shape--the organization of the church. This revised edition incorporates the actions of The United Methodist General Conference, 2004. The book discusses continuing reforms of the church's plan for baptism and church membership, as well as the emergence of deacon's orders and other changes to ordained ministry procedures. The text is now cross-referenced to the Book of Discipline, 2004, including the revised order of disciplinary chapters and paragraph numbering. Denominational statistics are updated, along with references to recent works on The United Methodist Church and American religious life

Reviews - What do customers think about Polity, Practice, and the Mission of The United Methodist Church: 2006 Edition?

Great companion to the UMC Discipline  Mar 28, 2008
Extremely useful resource for pastors, seminarians. Also for lay leaders mystified by the church's polity and practices.
 
Primer for the UMC Book of Discipline  Dec 1, 2004
This book was helpful while trudging through the UMC Book of Discipline 2000. (The 2004 is now available.) It helped to spot problems, provided some history, and pointed to possible future difficulties. If you must read and understand the UMC Book of Discipline, this book can be a simple way to start.

Its usefulness is limited to UMC clergy and lay leaders. If you need to learn your way around the heirarchy and the bureaucracy, this is a place to start. Another book to consider is "The Organization of the United Methodist Church" by Jack Tuell.
