Publisher's Description

The Bible was central to John Wesley’s 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 Wesley’s own words.

In this study, authors Scott and Arthur Jones use John Wesley’s sermons to illuminate the Bible passages at the heart of Wesley’s understanding of what it means to be a real Christian. Each chapter explores a key Scripture text and one of Wesley’s 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.

Chapters include:

  1. What is the Bible’s Message? 
  2. How Can I Be Saved?
  3. A, I a Real Christian?
  4. Do I Have to Obey the Law?
  5. Am I a Sinner?
  6. How Can I Connect with God?
  7. Why is the Christian Life Not Easier?
  8.  What about My Money?

Additional components for an eight-week study include a DVD featuring Scott and Arthur Jones and a comprehensive Leader Guide.

John Wesley discovered a challenging yet hopeful message in the Bible, which profoundly shaped his personal life and the Methodist movement he founded. As you study the Bible with John Wesley, you will hear his call to live a real Christian life and be inspired to respond to this call with faith and boldness.
