I feel honored to be involved in the creation of the new Wesley Study Bible. It will be valuable for teachers, preachers, Sunday School classes, Bible Study groups, small discussion groups, and individuals who want to know more about the truths of the Scriptures within the Wesleyan tradition written in words that are user-friendly for our time.
I am excited to contribute to The Wesley Study Bible because it takes seriously not only the sacred text but the fullness of Pan-Methodism. As a member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church I was elated that a variety of ecclesial and academic perspectives were used to reflect on the beliefs and teaching of John Wesley.
