Connections: My New Book Is Out!

I am happy to tell you that my new book, Five Marks of a Methodist, is available. You can get it right now directly from Abingdon Press at a discounted price via this link:

Or you can place a telephone order: 800-672-1789.

Amazon shows they will have it available on March 17th:

The book is a contemporary re-presentation of the five marks of a disciple that John Wesley put forward in his writing, “The Character of a Methodist.”  Along with “The General Rules of the United Societies,” it provided the foundation for the launch of Methodism.

Some of you will recall and will have made use of Bishop Rueben Job’s Three Simple Rules.  My book is “in the family” with that excellent little book, sharing a similar size, style, and approach.

You do not have to be a Methodist to benefit from the book, for even Wesley himself roughly equated a Methodist with any person seeking to be an effective disciple.  But if you are in the Wesleyan tradition, the book will help you connect even more strongly with your heritage.

You will find the book beneficial for personal reading and for use in small groups.  It includes questions for personal and group reflection.  And its size and style makes it an excellent gift book for someone you know who desires to grow in their faith.

The book is available in either a traditional book format or as an ebook.  Join me in praying that God will use this book as a means of grace for those who read it.

    Steve. By virtue of our creation we who are created in God’s image have sacred worth . We are all sinners nonetheless. Sexual sin within the body of Christ according to Paul is most greavious. See 1Cor. A significant part of the UMC will not a accept a doctrine such as sacred worth that excuses sexual sin of homosexuality. Roy
