You've heard the old saying, "You can't fit a square peg in a round hole." You can try to manipulate or force the peg, but really the only way you can make it fit into the round hole is by shaving some of the sides off. But once you do that, you can change the peg. In the same way, if we adopt the tenets of fundamentalism, we'll inherently change our Wesleyan faith- we'll end up with something different. In Square Peg, well-respected educators, pastors, and ministry leaders demonstrate the distinct differences between Wesleyan theology and fundamentalism. Through historical, biblical, scientific, and theological exposition, you'll explore the history of fundamentalism and its impact on denominations in the Wesleyan tradition, the differences in their views on Scripture, and the relationship between modern science and the Christian faith, and much more. In order to help Wesleyan churches remain true to their theology and identity, it's important to understand how our tradition will never be able to fit into a fundamentalist framework.
