Wednesday Giveaway - John Wesley's Teaching Volume One
Wesley was a prolific writer and commentator on Scripture and yet it is often held that he was not systematic or consistent in his theology and teachings. Thomas C. Oden sets out to prove otherwise, and demonstrates that Wesley displayed a remarkable degree of internal consistency over sixty years of preaching and ministry.
Volume One – which is today’s giveaway – focuses on Wesley’s theology of God, providence, and man.
You can click here for an excerpt from chapter one, in which he addresses everything from the relation of God to time, to the nature the material of creation.
“Matter is not eternal, since matter is created . Yet matter once created will not be annihilated but will finally be transformed so as to mirror once again the beauty and goodness of the original creation. Once God makes matter, he permits it to continually change, but not so as to be exterminated. The Almighty has sufficient power, of course, to annihilate atoms, but no reason to do so.”
Both lay and professional readers will find this series useful for devotional reading, moral reflection, sermon preparation, and for referencing Wesley’s opinions on a broad range of pressing issues of contemporary society.
