In recent years there has been much discussion of a crisis in theology and doctrine in The United Methodist Church - as there has in most major Christian churches. Questions about the particularity of Jesus Christ, about the authority of Christian scripture, about the reasons for evangelization and mission, about ecumenicity and the global church, about the meaning of discipline and holiness, and about the distinctive identity of Methodism are sources not only of debate but of serious divisiveness. The book brings together research and writings dealing with theology and doctrine in Methodism. It demonstrates the complexity of the issues and the diversity of sources and traditions that contribute to serious consideration of theology in the Wesleyan tradition.The book brings together research and writings dealing with theology and doctrine in Methodism.
