By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on January 23, 2004
Format: Paperback
Since 1972, when the United Methodist Church first added the idea of Wesley's Quadrilateral to its book of discipline, Wesleyan scholars have debated its importance and exact meaning. According to prevailing theory Wesley leaned heavily upon four paths to knowledge, Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience.
The disagreements are many. Did Scripture form the ultimate while the other three formed the support base? Were all four of equal importance? Since Wesley described himself as a man of one book, was Scripture alone his authority for knowledge? Did Wesley really have 5 paths to knowledge? (The Church of England being the 5th.)
If these questions have made you itchy to write a comment of your own, this is a good book for you.

I love the approach to this book. The authors each contribute their own expertise and perspective to this text and make it very interesting to read and understand. It was great to hear the different voices in the text and bring life to the Quadrilateral. After mining through each section and noting the fountain of knowledge within its pages, I was appalled at the Conclusion. I think the writers owe their audience an apology for being so pompous to say, "if you skipped immediately to these pages...Perhaps these concluding pages will entice you to return to the 'meatier' portions of our essays." Jerks. Assuming someone would buy the book and just read the intro and conclusion...really?

A great book for capturing Wesleyan thought. Great for reference. Great for teaching and sermon ideas. I gave copy away and had to get one for myself.
