The theology of John Wesley has proven exceedingly influential in the religious and spiritual lives of Wesley's followers and his critics. However, Wesley did not leave behind a written doctrine on scripture. This collection presents an array of diverse approaches to understanding John Wesley's charge to read and interpret the Bible as scripture. Contributors move beyond the work of Wesley himself to discuss how Wesleyan communities have worked to address the difficult scriptural--and theological--conundrums of their time and place. With contributions from William J. Abraham, Justo L. Gonzalez, Joel B. Green, Elaine A. Heath, Randy L. Maddox, Karen B. Westerfield Tucker, Jason E. Vickers, Laceye Warner, David F. Watson, Kenneth J. Collins, Robert W. Wall, Reginald Broadnax, Meesaeng Lee Choi, Hunn Choi, Douglas M. Koskela, D. Brent Laytham, Steven J. Koskie, and Michael Pasquarello III, Wesley, Wesleyans, and Reading Bible as Scripture ultimately attempts to underscore what it means to stand in the Wesleyan stream and bring about holiness through--and within--daily occurrences.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Every renewal of the church has been ignited by a renewed encounter with scripture. Who better to provoke a fresh encounter than John Wesley, 'man of one book'? Green and Watson have assembled an exciting, Wesleyan encounter with scripture in this wonderful book. Quite a gift for the renewal of the church." --Will Willimon, Bishop, North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church and Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry, Duke Divinity School
"Green and Watson are superb scholars who have assembled an excellent array of diverse contributors. The role of scripture in the Wesleyan theological tradition is more often assumed than examined, and this insightful book will go a long way toward correcting that deficiency." --William B. Lawrence, Dean and Professor of American Church History, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
