On Wednesday May 25th at 7:30pm.there will be an official book launch for David McEwan’s new book, Wesley as a Pastoral Theologian, at Nazarene Theological College, 40 Woodlands Drive, Thornlands, Qld 4164. The book will be introduced by Philip Almond, Professor in the History of Religious Thought, The Centre for the History of European Discourses, The University of Queensland.\r\n\r\n”In this book, Wesley’s theological methodology is uncovered from the perspective of his holistic vision of the God-human relationship being centred in love and defined by the qualities of trust and passion, rather than an intellectual comprehension of propositional truths about God. Accordingly, pastoral theology is much more important than academic, systematic theology for Christian experience and spiritual formation. In Wesley’s theological method Scripture, reason, community ethos and Christian experience are utilised in an interconnected dynamic network, energised by the presence of the Holy Spirit. This interconnected system is explored through an investigation of the doctrine and practice of Christian perfection as Wesley offered pastoral guidance to the people called Methodists.”\r\n\r\nYou may want to consider purchasing a copy for yourself or adding it to your institution’s library.
