William J. Abraham is the Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University.
Waking from Doctrinal Amnesia: The Healing of Doctrine in the United Methodist Churchby William J. Abraham
Asserting that the "return to Wesley" that is represented in the Quadrilateral is "intellectually wrongheaded," William J. Abraham argues that the Quadrilateral is not, and should not be, United Methodist doctrine. Abraham's lively treatise makes a provocative appeal for a reasoned exploration of the significance of the UMC's doctrinal identity. He reveals how churches have faced incompatible doctrinal proposals within their midst and examines the specific issues facing the United Methodist church as a whole.

This is a highly readable and very relevant book, especially for Methodists. To understand the Doctrinal Standards of the Methodist Church, how they came to be what they are and how they differ from the original standards, this little book is indispensable. If you teach, preach or go to Sunday school, this book is a must.
