The year 2006 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic decision in 1956 to accord full clergy rights to women clergy in The Methodist Church. Courageous Past-Bold Future chronicles this historic journey of passion, struggle, courage, and hope. In a moving early chapter, Thompson recounts the stories of the 27 women from 19 annual conferences who were received on probation at the 1956 General Conference, as well as three women elders from The Methodist Protestant Church still serving that year.

Eminent United Methodist historian Russell Richey skillfully analyzes the evolving marginalization of "extension ministers"—United Methodist clergypersons serving the denomination in ministry settings beyond the local parish. Drawing on denominational history, theological argument, and practical experience, Richey offers trenchant insights for reintegrating this vital ministry into the United Methodist connectional covenant today.

Distancing himself from liberals and conservatives but also pointing to the uselessness of a middle way, Rieger explores the theology of grace in situations of human pressure. Following John Wesley in his move to consider the 'works of mercy' as part of the means of grace, the author proposes to us a relational concept of grace that will prosper in dialogue and solidarity with those in distress, the oppressed 'other' who make present the gracious 'Other.'

Henry Foxall: Methodist, Industrialist, American, by Jane B. Donovan
Author: Jane B. Donovan
Paperback
ISBN: 
9780938162117

A tale of one man’s impact on both a church and state in a country that enshrines their separation.

Henry Foxall set the tone for subsequent American Methodists: adapters, entrepreneurs, and leaders. He was the quintessential catalyst for the transformation of a Spirit-filled movement into a church denomination and a young nation into an economic powerhouse. Foxall was a friend to Bishop Francis Asbury, a generous contributor to the Methodist enterprise, and a successful business person. This biography of Henry Foxall (1758—1823), sheds light on second-generation Methodism.
