Item Description...
Since its first appearance in the Discipline in 1972, this formulation has come to be known as the "Wesleyan Quadrilateral." The United Methodist Church has ever since been wrestling with how best to understand, interpret, and apply the concept of the Quadrilateral. Most United Methodists think that Scripture, tradition, reason, and experience can and must be used together in some way theologically, but there is considerable disagreement among them as to how this can best be done. The authors of this volume suggest that the solution lies in a "Wesleyan reappropriation" of a Quadrilateral as "the rule of Scripture within a trilateral hermeneutic of tradition, reason, and experience." They are convinced that Scripture is primary but argue that it cannot function in a manner that negates the other components, for Scripture cannot be read or interpreted without the meditation of tradition, reason, and experience. And they hope that this formulation, resulting from their extended conversations with each other may be the beginnings of a shared theological language with which United Methodism can face the twenty-first century.

Publishers Description
According to The Book of Discipline, Wesley believed that the "living core of the Christian faith" is revealed in Scripture, illumined by tradition, "vivified" by personal experience, and confirmed by reason. The thesis of Wesley and the Quadrilateral is that the Church needs serious conversation about reappropriating the Quadrilateral in a manner that is consistent with historical Methodist identity (beginning with Wesley), a conversation that takes the church's past identity with the utmost seriousness while recognizing present and future cultural trends.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Specific Text  Jan 24, 2004
Since 1972, when the United Methodist Church first added the idea of Wesley's Quadrilateral to its book of discipline, Wesleyan scholars have debated its importance and exact meaning. According to prevailing theory Wesley leaned heavily upon four paths to knowledge, Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience.

The disagreements are many. Did Scripture form the ultimate while the other three formed the support base? Were all four of equal importance? Since Wesley described himself as a man of one book, was Scripture alone his authority for knowledge? Did Wesley really have 5 paths to knowledge? (The Church of England being the 5th.)

If these questions have made you itchy to write a comment of your own, this is a good book for you.
