Item description for Waking from Doctrinal Amnesia: The Healing of Doctrine in The United Methodist Church by William J. Abraham...

Asserting that the "return to Wesley" that is represented in the Quadrilateral is "intellectually wrongheaded," William J. Abraham argues that the Quadrilateral is not, and should not be, United Methodist doctrine. Abraham's lively treatise makes a provocative appeal for a reasoned exploration of the significance of the UMC's doctrinal identity. He reveals how churches have faced incompatible doctrinal proposals within their midst and examines the specific issues facing the United Methodist church as a whole.

Reviews - What do customers think about Waking from Doctrinal Amnesia: The Healing of Doctrine in The United Methodist Church?

Doctrine and Practice  Dec 1, 2004
Abraham's book has already proven prophetic and continues to point toward future difficulities in UMC polity and practice. What purpose is there for a Book of Discipline, if it can generally be ignored with impunity? The underlying problem may be that very few UMC clergy and laity are familiar with Methodist Discipline. It absolutely contains doctrines and creeds, despite the naysayers.

Abraham calls for a reawakening to the UMC Book of Discipline and the propagation of knowledge about it. Without fundamental Christian doctrine, the UMC begins to look like the Peace Corps or a Masonic Lodge. The UMC is so much more than a proponent of social justice and rituals. We should not lessen the significance of the Incarnation, or Scriptural teachings.

As a result of the factions found in the UMC, we are seen by the public as a congregation of people who can believe anything. Abraham points us back to the Book of Discipline and shows that if we are to remain a connectional church, then we simply must afford more consideration to the rules upon which we have agreed.

I like this book. It is short, easy to read, and hits home in a direct and forceful way. We have had quite enough of the much abused Outlerian quadrilateral. Let's revisit our creeds.
