Rev. Arthur Jones, a fifth generation Methodist minister and lead pastor of St. Andrew United Methodist Church’s Contemporary Worship Services, The Well, has co-authored his first book, ASK – Faith Questions in a Skeptical Age, with his father, Bishop Scott J. Jones.
The questions addressed in the book include: Can only one religion be true? Why is there suffering and evil? How can I believe in science and creation? How can I believe in a God I can’t prove? Can I trust the Old Testament? Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues? Was Jesus’ resurrection real? Why do Christians disagree about so many things?
St. Andrew UMC will explore the book in all of its worship services through a multi-week sermon series, beginning September 13. Authors Rev. Jones and Bishop Jones invite the community to attend a special book signing and discussion at St. Andrew, in Smith Worship Center where the contemporary service meets at the church. No reservations needed, and books will be available for purchase that night.
