At a time when many United Methodist Christians are unsure of the beliefs of their church, Key United Methodist Beliefs is an important contribution. Complicated concepts come alive through the clearly written text and the structure of the book empowers readers to not only go deeper in faith and understanding, but to integrate that experience more fully into their daily life. This is a great book for anyone who takes their faith seriously.--Kimberly D. Reisman, Next Step Evangelism Ministries, Lafayette, Indiana
Imagine looking at basic Christian doctrines not as intellectual puzzles or as obstacles to being a Christian today, but as clues to truth and guides for living! Abraham and Watson know that the church in the post-modern era can no longer afford to ignore or denigrate doctrine, but it must use it to develop disciples of Jesus Christ. This little book is a tool that will be useful for churches that are trying to make disciples in a time of ignorance or bias against the Christian faith.
--Timothy W. Whitaker, bishop, Florida Conference, The United Methodist Church
In an age of increasing Biblical and doctrinal ignorance, Key United Methodist Beliefs has provided medicine for the soul. In a format that is both accessible and interactive, Abraham and Watson explain the basic elements of the Christian faith and discuss the implications of those beliefs for modern Christians. We will find this little volume very helpful in our church, for established believers as well as newcomers into the faith. I believe you will also.--Steve Wende, First Methodist Houston
A great book, simply written to help us all better understand basic United Methodist beliefs. As the author states, “The ways in which we think about God affect the ways in which we think about our lives as Christians.”
--Mike Slaughter, Ginghamsburg Church, Tipps, Ohio
In Key United Methodist Beliefs William Abraham and David Watson uncover the power of basic Christian belief as a foundation for practical and purposeful daily living. Writing from the depth of their Wesleyan scholarship they provide pastors, church leaders, Sunday School teachers, small group leaders--anyone desiring to explore the richness of Christian faith in the Wesleyan tradition--with a succinct and compelling resource for spiritual growth. --Gregory Stover, Armstrong Chapel United Methodist Church, Cincinnati
