Product Description

In How Great a Flame, Logan connects John Wesley's passion to reach people with the good news of Jesus Christ within the current realities a time when people seek spirituality and yet dismiss the church as "not spiritual" or irrelevant.

Through stories from the early Wesleyan movement, Logan challenges our understanding of evangelism. He illustates the interconnection of piety and social witness in those early days of revival and urges us to reclaim our heritage.

"As the twenty-first century unfolds, the ground has shifted beneath the feet of church-going Americans," Logan writes. "The society that once called itself Christian now has new values, new habits, new saints, new gods, and, so it assumes, new and better places to get its religion than the neighborhood church on the corner. The contemporary church finds itself in the posture of trying to maintain... rather than imaging itself as an apostolic, missionary people."

Logan identifies six bad habits of the church and offers practical advice for healthy, effective congregational ministries of outreach and evangelism today. The book includes questions for reflection and group conversation.

Logan connects the passion of the historical figure, John Wesley, to reach out to people with the good news of Jesus Christ with the current realities of the church. In the challenges of a time when people seek spirituality and yet, dismiss the church as "not spiritual," Logan dispels this notion and shows how grace and concepts of "societies" invite others into deeper relationships with God. In describing current church problems, Logan offers practical prescriptions for healthy congregational ministries in outreach and evangelism.
