This book covers four couples who take a membership training class at St. Mark UMC. The class covers the organization, history, and beliefs of the United Methodist Church. The final division of the book covers what should I now do as a member of the United Methodist Church.

Can be used for training classes of all kinds. It has Scripture, and prayer in each chapter as well as questions for discussion and consideration.

This review was written for LibraryThing Member Giveaways.
Wesley's Wars by J.R. Ewbank is a fascinating theological biopic of John Wesley as pastor and theologian. It is interesting to view his written works as defense against heretical or unhelpful teaching and guardianship of his flock rather than the purely devotional view in which many might view them now.

J. Robert Ewbank has completed a book called “To Whom It May Concern” from WestBow Press, A Division of Thomas Nelson.
It is a compilation of vignettes of things that have happened to members of our family. It is recollections of events and people and of their interactions. Most of these recollections and events are told with a touch of humor, but some of them are straightforward and of daily life and problems we all face.

These little stories are grouped around various events in the author’s life, such childhood, children, Baker University, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, various organizations for which he worked including the ministry, as Union Steel Products, Michigan Standard Alloys, Echlin, Hi-Lex Controls, teaching at colleges and universities, and yes, even a bakery after retirement.

There are some words about his prostate cancer, which after surgery and radiation therapy seems to be in remission—at least for now.
Some are about his difficulties and disillusionment with God, but God has won out largely or particularly through getting to know and love his wife. There are stories about both wives and the love and some of the troubles they had.

The book ends with postscripts and some conclusions that are taken from the author’s life and thoughts.

This memoir is intended primarily for the four children as a Christmas present in 2013. Hopefully these recollections and concluding remarks will be interesting to others so they too will enjoy these memories of one family.

J.
