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.

In this exciting and inspiring study, Scott J. Jones helps seekers and believers to envision and practice discipleship as a way of life. Presenting Christianity from a Wesleyan perspective, Jones invites participants into a deeper, more thoughtful, more active commitment to Christ. Each week a different presenter shares their personal faith experience. Presenters include Adam Hamilton, Olu Brown, Felicia Hopkins, Jessica Moffat Seay, Jorge Acevedo, Rob Fuquay and author Scott Jones. Mini-videos conclude each week with an interview or ministry story from the presenter’s home church. Participants then read on their own from the student book and the Bible and then once a week the group comes together to explore what they’ve read and to view another video.

Recharge. Reboot. Reorder. Whatever you want to call it, we need a process that helps us continuously renew our relationship with God so that we don’t drift away from our faith. Based on The Wesley Covenant for Renewal, Five Means of Grace is a six-week, video-based study that will show you how to reorder your life through prayer, searching Scripture, receiving the Lord’s Supper, fasting, and conferencing (worshiping together).

We hear a lot about “spiritual journey” these days. But it’s more than just trendy wording. Although he didn’t use the phrase, that’s what Joh n Wesley was really all about—taking steps and continually walking a path that transforms the heart and helps us grow into the likeness of Christ. This six-week study, designed for use in either small groups or as a churchwide experience, attempts to reclaim and, in a sense, reinterpret Wesley’s idea of “Christian perfection.” Participants learn how to develop a pattern of daily Scripture reading, prayer, and personal reflection and guided questions help define spiritual life goals and create strong church community bonds. The Daily Workbook fosters personal spiritual growth as group members develop their own pattern of daily Scripture reading, prayer, and personal reflection (five readings per week). The Program Kit includes the Participant Book (Daily Workbook), the Companion Reader (devotional), a Leader Guide with downloadable toolkit, and a flash drive with the contents of the downloadable toolkit.

We’re used to answers popping up on a screen right in front of us. But when the questions examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life, finding the answers takes more than simply typing a few words and pushing a button. Adam Hamilton believes that powerful answers to many of our complicated questions are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In Creed, he explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe, and why it matters, which in turn leads readers to confront and examine their own core beliefs and go beyond reciting the Creed’s familiar words. The book is part of a six-week churchwide program for Lent, Easter, and beyond that includes a Leader Guide, DVD, youth and children resources, card pack, and Leader Kit.

Henri Nouwen, the world-renowned spiritual guide and counselor, understood the spiritual life as a journey of faith and transformation that is deepened by accountability, community, and relationships. Though he counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles were never written down. Now two of his longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, have taken his famous courses in spiritual direction and spiritual formation and supplemented them with his unpublished writings to create the definitive work on Nouwen’s thoughts on the Christian life. Stories, readings, and thematically organized questions for reflection and guided journal writing provide an unparalleled resource, both for individuals and for small groups. The 3-volume set also includes a Cokesbury Exclusive special essay. Cokesbury. 540201. 3-Book Bundle. $50.97; $24.99

Bible Studies DISCIPLE FAST TRACK

Disciple Fast Track studies are ideal for busy people who want to fit an in-depth Bible study into their schedule. The studies retain the familiar Disciple format with its theme word, theme verse, statement of the human condition, daily and weekly assignments, and prayer. Classes meet for a total of 24 weeks. Fast Track groups meet for a total of 24 weeks, devoting 12 weeks each to the Old Testament and the New Testament. Participants read a manageable 3–5 chapters of the Bible daily in preparation for the weekly meetings, which last approximately 75 minutes. A separate Leader Guide provides group facilitators with step-by-step instructions for leading each week’s session with minimal additional preparation. On the DVDs, hosts provide 3–5 minute video insights related to the week’s session and help the group think about what they’ve learned and how it applies to their lives. Flexible for use with small groups of 8–14, or for large groups of 15–100.

MAKING DISCIPLES

IO N

S

William Willimon

Making Disciples is a 13-session mentor-based confirmation program that pairs confirmands with adult mentors who guide them through a variety of learning experiences that will strengthen the student’s understanding of the faith while connecting him or her with the community of believers in a personal way. It can be used as a stand-alone program, or in conjunction with your current curriculum as a special experiential unit. This confirmation program is more like a process and less like a reading assignment, more engaging and congruent with the nature of the Christian faith than existing programs. Using an “apprenticeship” approach to confirmation, Will Willimon produced a series of learning experiences where adult mentors and confirmands are both teachers and learners at the same time. This timetested approach has been extensively revised and updated for use in today’s churches that take seriously Christ’s command to be engaged in disciple making. Topics explore the basics of Christian faith: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit , worship, the Bible, gifts, ministry, baptism, spiritual life, death and resurrection, the Church. Abingdon Press.

Confirmation Hands-on, investigative learning about what it means to be a Methodist COLABORATE: Methodist Confirmation.

15 S

ES

SI O Each of the Colaborate: Methodist Confirmation units has its own handbook containing fifteen lessons that guide students through a process of discovery. With intriguing questions, in-depth infographics, and punchy graphics, each page pulls students into the content to drive engagement with the Bible, Methodist doctrine, and each other. The short videos use humor, exaggeration, and assumptions to tease out the problem statement of the lesson. They are intentionally a bit provocative (and age-appropriate!) in order to maximize the effects of problem-based learning. Sparkhouse.

re:form Traditions, Methodist includes 4 sessions (Backstory, Beliefs, Practices, and Tradition Today). For each lesson, the Leader Guide provides a theological background on the question presented in the video, offers suggestions on supporting youth as they tackle the tough questions, and includes direction for the individual and group activities included in the Anti-Workbook. The Anti-Workbook is highly interactive and includes 24 pages of vivid illustrations and offers multiple types of engagement activities including drawing, interviews, photo reports, scrapbooking, Web searches, and an occasional thumb war. re:form Traditions is designed to be used alongside the core re:form curriculum, or your current curriculum, in settings like confirmation classes where additional denominationalspecific material is preferred.

Leadership Faith communities for people who typically have never been to church FRESH EXPRESSIONS: A New Kind of Methodist Church For People

S

We live in a culture that is increasingly non-religious and multi-religious. A wave of new Christian churches are emerging to reach unchurched and dechurched people, churches that gather and network with people who typically have never been to church. The new faith communities listen to people and go where they are on the journey toward Jesus. They are deeply ecumenical but do not lose their distinctiveness because they learn fresh ways to communicate their identity through discipleship. The Fresh Expressions movement began in the United Kingdom, where it ignited over 3,000 new faith communities. In the United States, the movement is putting down roots in Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Florida. Ken Carter and Audrey Warren offer this book as a group study for church leaders and congregations who are in the grip of Holy Spirit motivation to renew their tradition by reaching people who are dechurched or not yet in a discipleship relationship with Jesus. Each chapter includes two Bible study experiences for group conversation (12 total). Also includes a 6-session study to guide small teams that work with missions and evangelism to reach people who are not interested in traditional church. Abingdon Press. 9781501849206. $14.99; $9.99

This book gives tactics to get your church moving forward in mission by looking at biblical passages where God commands us to “Go.“ God calls us to break stereotypes and witness in surprising and unexpected ways. God tells us to “Go,“ but most churches don’t. We all know that we are supposed to go and make disciples to transform the world, but drag our feet or sometimes simply refuse. Dr. Mark Teasdale says it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a wide range of options available to us. We don’t have to be held back. God’s mission for us and our churches is more exciting and rewarding than we can possibly imagine. We don’t have to worry about winning or losing, succeeding or failing.

Leadership Reflections on the tasks, joys, and challenges of ordained ministry PASTOR: REVISED EDITION: The Theology and Practice of Ordained Ministry William H. Willimon

Ordained ministry, says Will Willimon, is a gift of God to the church—but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. Always a difficult vocation, changes in society and the church in recent years have made the ordained life all the more complex and challenging. Is the pastor primarily a preacher, a professional caregiver, an administrator? Given the call of all Christians to be ministers to the world, what is the distinctive ministry of the ordained? When does one’s ministry take on the character of prophet, and when does it become that of priest? What are the special ethical obligations and disciplines of the ordained? Pastor: Revised Edition explores these and other central questions about the vocation of ordained ministry. It draws on great teachers of the Christian tradition to demonstrate that, while much about Christian ministry has changed, its core concerns—preaching the word, the care of souls, the sacramental life of congregations—remains the same. Ordained ministry is a vocation to which we are called, not a profession that we choose. To answer that call is to open oneself to heartache and sometimes hardship; yet, given the one who calls, it is to make oneself available to deep and profound joy as well.

History A record of the beginnings of the Wesleyan/Methodist movement

new THE JOURNAL LETTERS AND RELATED BIOGRAPHICAL ITEMS OF THE REVEREND CHARLES WESLEY, M.A. Frank Baker, Richard P. Heitzenrater, and Randy L. Maddox, editors

As a primary record of one of the founders of the Wesleyan/Methodist movement, Charles Wesley’s Journal is crucial to an understanding of the beginnings of that movement. It is an indispensable interpretive companion to John Wesley’s Journal, diaries, and letters. Since it provides important background to the context of Charles Wesley’s own lyrical theology expressed in sacred poetry, it is likewise absolutely essential for anyone who wants to understand the context out of which Wesleyan theology, worship, spirituality, hymnody, and conferencing emerged. For a church or movement which avers that “it sings its theology,” Charles Wesley’s Journal is an imperative. This volume is part of a series dedicated to providing a complete and accurate published collection of Charles Wesley’s manuscript items beyond his sermons and verse.

History Part of the bicentennial edition of The Works of John Wesley

new THE WORKS OF JOHN WESLEY: Volume 32— Medical Writings James G. Donat and Randy L. Maddox, editors From the beginning of his ministry, John Wesley was committed to nurturing in his own life and in the communities he served “health of body and of soul.” This volume provides a window into his concern for “health of body” by collecting all of his writings related to health and wellness. These range from his best-selling home guide to health care, the Primitive Physic, through his recommendation of electrical-shock therapy, to his concern for nervous disorders. The volume will be of keen interest to all who are committed to recovering Wesley’s holistic understanding of salvation and ministry in the present church, as well as to those seeking a better understanding of medical care in the eighteenth century.

History How Methodism came to represent America’s emerging middle class HENRY FOXALL: Methodist, Industrialist, American Jane B. Donovan

Henry Foxall’s story is full of turning points and transitions. He was a catalyst for the transformation of a Spirit-filled movement into a church denomination and a young nation into an economic powerhouse. Foxall was a friend to Bishop Francis Asbury, a generous contributor to the Methodist enterprise, and a successful business person. But more than that, Henry Foxall’s life is a tale of one man’s impact on both a church and state in a country that enshrines their separation. It is a uniquely American story. This biography of Henry Foxall (1758–1823), sheds light on second generation Methodists and Methodism. Dr. Donovan focuses on Foxall’s role in funding many of Asbury’s projects, thus offering new insight into the beginnings of Methodist institutionalization. Foxall also demonstrates early Methodist embourgeoisement, the movement of the church’s social location from the working classes and poor to the middle and upper classes. Foxall was an early adapter in both institutionalization and embourgeoisement, and since we have few accounts of those developments while they were in process, this work makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of nineteenth-century American Methodism.

to encourage and inform robust conversations about challenging questions being debated by faithful United Methodists. We offer this array of books with differing perspectives for your study, reflection, and edification as together we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

LIVING FAITHFULLY: Human Sexuality and The United Methodist Church David L. Barnhart, Jr., Rebekah Jordon, Alex Joyner, and Jill M. Johnson There is deep disagreement about what The United Methodist Church should teach about homosexuality, same-gender marriage, and the ordination of LGBTQ persons. In 2019, a special session of General Conference will be held to consider these issues and how they will be addressed by The United Methodist Church in the future. Living Faithfully is designed to help you understand the shape of this debate and what it means for the present and the future. Each chapter includes background on the Bible, Christian theology, history, stories from diverse viewpoints, and United Methodist structure and practice to guide reflection and conversation. You’ll also find definitions of key terms and information about upcoming events. This four-week study will help you understand and grapple with various views about the ministry and teaching of The United Methodist Church around issues of human sexuality. It will lead you to have honest, well-informed, and grace-filled conversations with others about these matters and the calls for change. And it will help you discern, in prayer and conversation, how you can respond faithfully in love of God and neighbor. A Leader Guide is included with lesson plans to help facilitate a four-session small group study. 9781501859779. $12.99; $8.79

IS IT TIME? Helping Laity and Clergy Discuss Homosexuality One Question at a Time Adolf Hansen

Conversations about human sexuality are taking place all over The United Methodist Church—in local congregations, among leaders, and in conferences. Adolf Hansen, an ordained elder who is theologianin-residence at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, Indianapolis, contributes to this conversation by presenting questions for laity and clergy to explore as they engage in open dialogue in an atmosphere of mutual respect, even when the conversation partners disagree. The author says, “My hope is that persons who read this book will become aware of the wide variety of issues related to the subject of homosexuality; will be encouraged to reflect on each of them; will think through the meaning of whatever answers they give to the questions the book raises; will grapple with the implications of the stances they take; and will engage in conversations with others—both in a one-onone setting and in a group.” (from the Introduction) When we do that, he argues, we can move on to the wider issues and give our full attention to the mission of the Church: to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 9781501859731. $14.99; $9.99

How might United Methodists bear witness to graceful and mutually respectful ways of living in the Wesleyan tradition amid enduring disagreements about same-gender relationships and related church practices? The contributors engage the question by asking themselves: • How do I approach this question in light of my particular social location? • What do I believe is most at stake, most at risk, and most needed at this time in the life of The United Methodist Church? • How does my understanding of Scripture and our theological task shape how I envision how we might best live into the future? 9781501859717. $17.99; $11.99

Each chapter concludes with a jointly written “communion” section that has ideas for working together as leaders, lay people, and congregations with practical steps to pave the way. 9781501859335. $16.99; $11.49

new Coming in April ARE WE REALLY BETTER TOGETHER? An Evangelical Perspective on the Division in The UMC

Rob Renfroe and Walter Fenton

The authors set out to address the division within The United Methodist Church and contend that remaining united is hurting the Church and the proclamation of the Gospel. Recognizing that conservative and progressive Methodists are sincere in their beliefs, the authors doubt that one side will convince the other to change their minds. They therefore suggest that a fair and amicable separation is the best course of action. “The United Methodist Church is at a crossroads. We are a divided church and the truth is we are a hurting church. Some of us believe that our differences are so great and the ongoing battle so destructive that it’s time to part ways. For over four decades conservative and progressive United Methodists have expended enormous emotional, financial and spiritual resources to gain the upper hand in a denomination that has declined every year since its founding in 1968. Surely our efforts and our finances would be better devoted to evangelism, discipleship and missions. For the sake of the lost and the poor, shouldn’t we set each other free to pursue what we believe to be God’s calling upon our lives and our ministries?” (From the Introduction) 9781501863851. $14.99; $9.99 UM18

THE FIGHT FOR MARRIAGE: Church Conflicts and Courtroom

OUR STRANGELY WARMED HEARTS: Coming Out into

Contests Phillip F. Cramer and William L. Harbison

God’s Call Karen P. Oliveto

For leaders in governments and in churches, marriage equality is the most contentious civil-rights dispute in the 21st century. Same-gender couples now have the federal civil right to marry. At a time when 62 percent of Americans approve of same-gender marriage, according to June 2017 Pew Research, churches are having to come to terms with whether to recognize and affirm these faithful partnerships as sacred covenants.

As John Wesley discovered his true spiritual identity, he experienced a strangely warmed heart. Through poignant stories and well-reasoned principles, Karen Oliveto discloses why and how spiritual renewal and a personal call to ministry emerge in the strangely warmed hearts of lesbian and gay Christians.

Attorneys Harbison and Cramer, faithful and active members of a United Methodist congregation, brought one of the marriage equality cases to the US Supreme Court, which resulted in the 2015 landmark decision that permits persons of the same gender to marry. They bring a unique legal and cultural perspective to the controversy. With a firsthand account of the respectful courtroom drama concerning marriage in American communities and states, the authors show why states care about marriage, why the church got involved in marriage more than a thousand years after Jesus’s earthly ministry, and how the church and the state function in partnership to foster the purposes and social benefits of marriage.

In The United Methodist Church (and other Christian denominations), it is difficult or impossible for lesbian, gay, transsexual, and bisexual clergy or laity to become a visible and outward channel for God’s saving grace. This book traces the history of the church’s struggle with homosexuality, highlighting critical incidents in the culture and church polity which shape the church’s response. The controversy is deeply rooted in how God’s people are searching the Scriptures, which are interpreted as a means of grace for some and as a rulebook for others. This book includes first-person narratives of LGBTQ persons faithfully serving in a denomination that denies their calls and—in some cases—their presence. These stories will show how the coming out process is deeply spiritual as one grows into an authentic, God-created and graced self. 9781501858918. $17.99; $11.99

new Coming in May A NEW CHURCH AND A NEW SEMINARY: Theological Education Is the Solution

David McAllister-Wilson

Many churches are “mule churches”—strong for a generation but unable to produce many offspring in new church starts or strong candidates for ministry. The pastors, superintendents, and bishops of these churches think they know what makes a strong church, and think their approach to ministry is the key to success. These churches have nostalgia for the way things used to be, making it hard for them to adapt to change. Before, seminaries prepared pastors to maintain healthy churches in stable neighborhoods. Now, every neighborhood is changing and many churches are losing their members and their confidence. They long for a recovery of their sense of mission and a new kind of leadership. A new kind of seminary is regenerating to foster hope, wisdom, creativity, and engagement with the great issues of our day. 9781501858895. $19.99; $13.49

new Coming in May THE 19: Questions to Kindle a Wesleyan Spirit Carolyn Moore Wesley’s historic questions have been asked of those considered for full connection (ordination) since as early as 1784. The questions also have a broader Wesleyan context. Many of these questions were originally used with the people Wesley called “Helpers,” lay men and women to whom Wesley gave responsibility for leadership in the Methodist societies. They were class leaders, stewards, local preachers and traveling preachers. The questions addressed topics Wesley believed to be essential for persons responsible for leading others in discipleship and mission in the world. The nineteen questions cover topics from faith in Christ to spiritual practices to debt. The questions around commitment to the rules of the Church have a contemporary urgency in this season of division. Carolyn Moore thoughtfully unpacks each question in a historical and personal way. 9781501861093. $14.99; $9.99

new Coming in May OUR PURPOSE IS LOVE: The Wesleyan Way to Be the Church

David N. Field

We live in a time of great division in the world, and too often we find this polarization mirrored in the church. As Christians, we know we are supposed to love one another, but even that mandate has come to mean different things to different people. What does it mean to love God and neighbor today? David Field challenges us to recognize and reclaim love as the center of our identity and purpose as the church. He presents a Wesleyan vision of the church as the embodiment of God’s love in the world and explores the implications of this vision for our life together. The church is where we become creatures of love, learning to love God and neighbor ever more completely and authentically through the means of God’s grace. As a result, we bear witness to the world by reflecting God’s love more and more perfectly in the way we treat others and order our common life. 9781501868672. $16.99; $11.49 UM18

When we love God with our minds, conversations matter, especially faithful conversations about difficult and divisive topics. This book and four-week study represent the clear reasoning and earnest conferencing by an international group of scholars who met to discuss human sexuality and the future of The United Methodist Church. The contributors to the book informed the Colloquy on the Unity of the Church and Human Sexuality, sponsored by the United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry and the Association of United Methodist Theological Schools. The meeting convened at Candler School of Theology in March 2017. The study addresses how the church can be a witness and provide for a diversified human community. Based on the research of Dr. Charles M. Wood, the Study Guide offers United Methodists an opportunity to think about what has become a cultural and ecclesial flash point— human sexuality—and comes out of the conviction that the church is thirsty for theological conversation. The guide plumbs the depths of the Wesleyan heritage to enhance our faithful witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ at a time when devout followers are deeply divided.

Theology Articulates how faith & facts can coexist and intersect INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN FAITH: A Deeper Way of Seeing Neal F. Fisher

Looking for God is intensely personal and yielding to God is often surprising. Fisher says, “Confronting the genuine joys we experience and the agony and sorrows we endure, we reach out to connect our lives with a source of meaning, an object of devotion that will anchor our lives in something more lasting than ourselves.” The Good News is that God is there for us even before we seek God, because God loves us. We respond by seeing what God offers, because in so doing, we will have a deeper understanding of what is real, what true, and what matters. Fisher says that faith is embedded in a community of faith that nourishes, refines, and confirms this Good News in daily practices of Christian living.

Theology There is no ministry without theology INTRODUCTION TO THEOLOGY FOR MINISTRY Elaine A. Robinson

Written from a United Methodist perspective, this introduction begins, as did John Wesley, with Scripture and an understanding of Jesus, who embodies ministry with theological integrity. From this starting point, author Elaine Robinson moves to defining theology and how it developed. From there, Robinson lays out issues of method and language. In the final section, she systematically discusses basic doctrines of faith, including: God, Christ, Holy Spirit, Church, Last Things, and Humanity. This book is ideal for those who want to learn about the foundational beliefs of Christianity. General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. 9780938162407. $24.99; $19.49

THE CAUSES, EVILS, AND CURES OF HEART AND CHURCH DIVISIONS

A WESLEYAN THEOLOGY OF THE EUCHARIST: The

Presence of God for Christian Life and Ministry Jason E. Vickers, general editor The commitment to the centrality of the Eucharist in Christian practice has waxed and waned though it was greatly valued by John and Charles Wesley. Here, scholars seek to recover the importance of Holy Communion for theology and ministry. General Board of Higher Education & Ministry.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

Stanley Hauerwas and William H. Willimon The work of the Spirit is often thought of as “inspirational,” but it’s more than a personal experience. This book helps readers understand that the Holy Spirit is who God is and what God does as the Trinity, and learn how to prayerfully embrace this gift that created the church and continues to empower us.

Theology Wesley’s foundational text PLAIN ACCOUNT OF CHRISTIAN PERFECTION John Wesley

“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” —Matthew 5:48 In his classic book, A Plain Account of Christian Perfection, John Wesley offers a comprehensive teaching on the doctrine of Christian perfection. In it, he describes the evolution of his own theological reasoning, telling the story of how he came to understand and to preach this doctrine in his own life. In this work that is part autobiography, part spiritual contemplation, and part scriptural exegesis, Wesley shares tracts he wrote on the topic of perfection, describes the conflicts that sometimes arose over his ideas, reveals his own developing convictions, and offers probing queries for all believers to consider. Included at the end is an account of Wesley’s personal experience of “entire holiness.” Whitaker Distributors. 9781629113005. $12.99; $10.99
