Biography

Have you heard about John Wesley? Do you like reading about John Wesley? Are you interested in John Wesley’s theology?

Are you interested in what John Wesley thought about the Roman Catholics? How about the Quakers? Did you know that he wrote about the Deists and the Mystics and compared their thinking with that of his “True Christianity?” He also wrote about the relationships between Judaism and Christianity.

John Wesley was a very ecumenical thinker holding together many views that apparently are opposed to each other. We should be proud of our founder.

The book “John Wesley, Natural Man, and the ‘Isms’” written by J. Robert (Bob) Ewbank, discusses all of these issues and more.

Written for the layperson as well as the scholar, there is a Study Guide in the back of the book to help individual or group study. The Guide has questions in the front, which are answered later in the Guide.

Bob has a B.A. from Baker University in Baldwin, Kansas and an M.Div. from Garrett-Evangelical. He is currently active in St. Mark UMC, in Mobile, AL.

Bishop Rueben P. Job of the United Methodist Church has written some kind words on the back cover.

Sam Royappa District Superintendent of the Coulee District in Wisconsin has recommended this book to his clergy and laity.

Dennis Mohler, District Superintendent of the Foothills District in Ohio also comments on the book at www.foothillsdistrict.org/newsletter/october

The book is found on the Newcastle Methodist Church site at www.newcastlemethodist.org.uk.

A review of the book has also been published in the October 15, 2009 copy of The Laity Link which is the newsletter of the Alabama-West Florida Conference Board of Laity. It is also been written up in “The Rainbow,” the magazine of Delta Tau Delta, The “Aware” magazine of Garrett-Evangelical and the Baker University magazine “Baker World.”

The book has been used by a local Sunday School in its entirety and quoted in others.

The book is at many locations on the internet.

“Wesley’s Wars” discusses the theological wars John Wesley waged on behalf of “true religion,” a religion of the heart. They were fought to protect the people in his society who trusted him with their spiritual health, and he took that seriously. He waged war on incorrect ideas of original sin, predestination, the church, and Christian perfection. It is now available through WestBow publishing a division of Thomas Nelson, as well as many other internet locations.

My third book, "To Whom It May Concern" is about my fa, failies even, fiends, parents, grandparents, cousins, experences at work and n the ministry. It is the kid o book that describes life for those who read it, wit a touch of humor added or spice.

Good reading.

Bob

Smashwords book reviews by J. Robert Ewbank

  • Dirty Little Angels on Feb. 22, 2011

    This book by Tusa is a very interesting one about being raised in the slums of New Orleans. I found the book interesting and enjoyed it. Some of the characters seemed to be emotionally a little "leveled" in which they were not as acting out as I would have expected, however enjoyed the main characters. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    This book by Fullam is an interesting read. The ending is not expected, and some of the characters are a little "starchy", they do not seem to me to be fully fleshed out. Of course this may have been in the mind of the author. It will catch your attention even though you are not sure that it is a realistic portrayal of the characters. J. Robert Ewbank "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
  • Surface in Heaven on Feb. 22, 2011

    This book by Joseph Fullam is one about the future and covers basically two characters, one male and one female. They have their times in the future and it is an interesting read, especially for those who like sci fi. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    Enjoyed this romp with Mark HIll. It is a fast read but one that you will definitely enjoy. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
  • Look for Our Mother and Our Father on May 06, 2011

    Don't know exactly how to shelve this book by Anonymous. It is interesting from several points. It forces you to take a look at some of the concepts that underlie our culture and realize that there are options or different ways in which our culture could have developed. The book is shallow in that it does not have the time to get deep into any concept but briefly says that our current culture is wrong and the earlier cultures are right. By earlier cultures he means native Americans and Africans etc. etc The old days were not as bad as our current days. He has some interesting things to say about the presuppositions or science and is somewhat misinformed about Christianity. However it is difficult to argue that what he sees is not to be found in some who call themselves Chrisstian. A good book to have read and to remember that our culture is not always right just because it is our culture. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
  • Death After Midnight on May 26, 2011

    I enjoyed this book by Fetzer. It is a little far out but that adds to the attraction of the book. The characters are sketched in enough for you to follow them and the plot is interesting enough to follow. It can capture your attention for the time it takes to read the book. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
  • Let's Get Digital: How To Self-Publish, And Why You Should on Sep. 19, 2011
    (no rating)
    This book by David Gaughran almost convinces me to self-publish. Unfortunately I do not write novels. I write theology and I'm afraid that no one that I know published theology in this manner. I would have to learn more about how theologians handle these things in order to self-publish, but he almost had me. If I were not writing theology I would definitely consider learning how to self-publish. The book has a lot of information for one seeking ideas. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

    Though I usually do not read teen books or books that are about psychics, I decided to read this one and I'm happy that I did. This book covers the problems that a teen girl has with the psychic abilities that she has and the abilities that others have. It covers the use and misuse of these talents. The story is interesting and keeps you reading to find out what happens to the characters. I enjoyed it. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
  • Sink or Swim on Dec. 28, 2011

    This was an enjoyable book by Juba. She took an unusual experience that most of us would not have and made a fine story out of it. The characters were ones that you would be happy to meet again in another book by her. Liked the plot because it was a little unusual and catchy. Keep on writing Juba. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"

  • Free to Die on March 09, 2012

    This was a compelling book by McElwain and I enjoyed reading it. Could hardly put it down beacuse I wanted to see what happened next and how the main character was going to get out of the problems he faced. As a mystery, those who like mysteries will really enjoy this one. J. Robert Ewbank author "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the'Isms'"
