I’ve gathered together on this page everything substantive that John Wesley said about the Bible. I have not attempted to “tone down” or alter any of his opinions — though I have updated the language in the first quote. My goal here has been completeness.

Daniel Steele (1824-1914): "The higher life has deeper roots than the ordinary Christian life. It is rooted in the soil of the divine word, and, like the century enduring oak, appropriates therefrom all its elements of strength."

"Celebrate Recovery can sometimes be overwhelming. As a leadership team, we took a huge hit when one of our most loved servants turned out to be a five-time child molester and rapist. He had been lying to us for eight years. It was a big shock to all—especially those closest to him... Essential kenosis gives us the ability to understand that these acts were not from God, nor allowed by God, but carried out through the choices of a created being. God is sorrowful for all who are involved." Bethanie Young https://uncontrollinglove.com/2016/11/22/the-relationship-between-good-and-evil/

Friends,

I've decided to run a contest the winner of which gets two autographed theology books.

One book is John B. Cobb, Jr.'s classic, A Christian Natural Theology. It was published 50 years ago this month.

The other book is my own, The Uncontrolling Love of God. It was published 1 year ago this month.

The lucky winner, chosen at random, gets both books. To increase your odds of winning, you get additional entry points for recommending the contest to friends.

Here's the link:

I wish you well!

Tom
