Now, on the eve of the twenty-first century, United Methodists in the Wesleyan tradition face new challenges. Do the forms in which the church shaped itself for mission and ministry in the present century show promise for the next one? Are there voices within the church that need to be heard, perhaps for the first time? Will the spiritual, human, and material resources within the denomination be adequate to the task? The collection of essays in this volume offers a candid description of the United Methodists in American culture today, as well as a frank reassessment of the way the church recalls its history. Together, the essays present a perspective on reforming the denomination's internal order and external outreach, with faithfulness to its heritage while following its summons to holiness and service.
-Publisher

Includes essays about United Methodist congregations, patterns of giving, ministry in transition, clergy compensation, and the experience of various racial and ethnic groups, both in terms of how these groups were affected by Methodism and how Methodism was shaped by their experience. The collection offers a candid description of "golden era" Methodism, and challenges how the church recalls its history.
