About the Study
• Do you know what God’s purpose is for you?
• How can the power of God change the way you live?
• What is the goal of the Christian life?
• What is sanctification?
• How are happiness and holiness related?
• How does getting closer to God help us get closer to each other?
These are just a few of the discussion questions prompted and stirred in The Absolute Basics of the Wesleyan Way, a 12-session study packed with dynamic illustrations and compelling analogies that explore the key elements of the Wesleyan movement. The lessons work through three primary sections: John Wesley’s life, his core theological message, and the legacy of Wesley’s leadership on the Methodist church. Like its predecessor, The Absolute Basics of the Christian Faith, this book can be studied individually, but is designed for group use. The accompanying videos are perfect for new member or confirmation classes, and for small-group or youth group settings.
Rich in both history and faith-building, this study walks readers of all ages through a fundamental understanding of the value of scripture, prayer, communion, spiritual relationships, and the power of salvation, as evidenced in the life and teachings of John Wesley. As readers grow in their personal knowledge and understanding of God’s truths, this book gives them the perfect tools to carry their faith into the future.
