Faithroots – A Pastoral Theology Series

How do you know? The Doctrine of Revelation

How can we make sense of a messy world? How can we find meaning in life? What does it mean to live a good life?  This book brings together our first series of posts as we discover that what we believe affects how we live. That means it is important to be able to distinguish between truth and lies about God. Creation, Humanity and New  Creation. So how can we know truth?  This book seeks to answer that question.

How do you know Study Guide

Who is God? The Doctrine of God

Who is God and what does he have to do with me?  Can God be sovereign without trampling on my free-will? What does it mean to say that God is both good and great? What about atheism?  These and other big questions are tackled as we look at the truth and lies we believe about God. Pastoral application is considered with the help of some true to life case studies covering issues such as work, addiction, marital breakdown, relationships and friendship.

Wesley and the slave trade

Did you know that John Wesley, the great evangelist and founder of Methodism had a part to play in the abolition of slavery?  This booklet looks at the arguments Wesley made in his “Thoughts Upon the Slave Trade.”

Some people have suggested that the abolitionists had to argue against Scripture in order to justify their position.  So this study is particularly pertinent as we consider how to make decisions about contemporary ethical issues.
