In Three Simple Rules, Rueben Job offers an interpretation of John
Wesley's General Rules for today's readers. For individual reading or group study,
this insightful work calls us to mutual respect, unity and a deeper daily
relationship with God.

This simple but challenging look at
three commands, "do no harm, do good, stay in love with God," calls us to mutual
respect, unity, and a deeper relationship with God.

“Every year
I review the three general rules of the United Methodist Church with those who are
being ordained. Now I have a wonderful ordination gift to give them in Bishop Job’s,
Three Simple Rules, to start and deepen the conversation as they enter a new
relationship with the church. Bishop Job has described “by attending upon all the
ordinances of God” to be to “stay in love with God.” It’s a fresh language that
speaks especially to long-time Christians and United
Methodists.”    Sally Dyck, Resident Bishop, Minnesota

“Three Simple Rules is a new catechism
for everyone wanting to follow Jesus Christ. These practices for holy living should
replace the membership vows in every church! Don’t let the title fool you. Bishop
Job writes, ‘The rules are simple, but the way is not easy. Only those with great
courage will attempt it, and only those with great faith will be able to walk this
exciting and demanding way.’”      John
Hopkins, Resident Bishop, East Ohio Area
