The Bible was central to John Wesleys faith and the Christian movement he founded. In Scripture and the Wesleyan Way, you will discover a Wesleyan approach to the Bible and the Christian life through a Bible study using Wesleys own words.
In this study, authors Scott and Arthur Jones use John Wesleys sermons to illuminate the Bible passages at the heart of Wesleys understanding of what it means to be a real Christian. Each chapter explores a key Scripture text and one of Wesleys sermons on it. Through their insightful and engaging study, Bishop Jones and his son Arthur show how the teachings of Wesley address questions that many of us in the twenty-first century still struggle with today.
