The founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley, was an avid reader and student. In his prolific writings, he encouraged others to do the same. John Wesley focused on scripture, tradition, reason, and experience when he studied. These four areas of focus later became known as the Wesley Quadrilateral. Knowledge is critical to an informed faith. God has given us minds to use as we engage the world around us and seek to advance God’s love in all aspects of our lives. We invite you to follow in our founder’s example of study and education in our efforts to resist harm.
We hope that you will find the suggested resources below helpful for personal, small group, or congregational study. The first set of books are curated to match our monthly themes of resistance from January to May. Discussion questions for each book will be added later below.
If you find additional resources helpful during this season, we hope you will consider sharing it with others here.
Resist Harm is not an organization or a coalition. It has no employees, offices, or overhead. However, it does incur expenses for web infrastructure, promotion, printing, and organizing. We are a movement of volunteers and 100% funded by people and churches like you. Anything you give helps to make this movement more effective. To give, donate at Reconciling Ministries Network’s website and designate “Resist Harm.” 100% of your gift will pay for Resist Harm’s direct costs. RMN has graciously agreed to administer the funds donated for the Resistance movement for no charge.
