About this title

Synopsis:

James Rutland Wood asserts that God is calling The United Methodist Church to a mission for which it is uniquely suited: to lead contemporary people and societies to a culturally aware biblical faith. Such a faith interprets the Bible in the light of the culture of its authors and watches for the living word the God of the Bible speaks to each person in his or her own culture. Fulfilling this mission will shape the way people access the Bible; the way the Bible informs public policy; and, specifically, the way people and societies accept gay and lesbian persons.

This volume brings together sound biblical, theological, and sociological arguments.  It calls for a faith that remains both biblically based and in touch with the contemporary cultural context and calls to The UMC to lead society to a culturally aware biblical faith.

From the Inside Flap:

"Imperative reading for all headed to General Conference or concerned about what might occur there, particularly as regards homosexuality and abortion. Wood discerns amidst the chaos and conflict of United Methodist life the potential of a vibrant church united in mission and on the biblical witness. He discovers grounds for such unity from conversations with a broad range of UMC leaders, from rigorous, sociological surveys of the 1996 General Conference, and from long, careful observation of Methodist affairs. Here's a sociologist with a word of hope." --Russell E. Richey, Duke Divinity School
