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.
