In Defense of Creation

An on-line guide for study and action.

The United Methodist Publishing House is pleased to make available again this signal work of our Council of Bishops. While the course of history has moved on since its original publication date in 1986, and different countries in different situations are faced with the issues of war in a nuclear age, the basic questions continue to be well stated by this important document.

The text of In Defense of Creation (the Foundation Document) is available for purchase through Cokesbury. The study guides are available here as free downloads.

The original study guide had options of 13 one-hour sessions or 6 one-hour sessions. We have offered the latter option here, so you will be accessing sessions 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 and 11 from the original study. As history has moved on, so has technology. What follows had to be scanned exactly from the previously produced sessions since we can no longer access the original files from which this was printed. Consequently, not even minor updating has been attempted.

You will want to note: You can use the United Methodist Hymnal instead of the Book of Hymns in sessions 5 and 8 as follows: 

"God of Grace and God of Glory" (session 5) UMH #577
"A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" (session 8) UMH #110
"How Firm a Foundation" (session 8) UMH #529
"Be Still My Soul" (session 8) UMH #534

Also, you will find "The General Rules of the Methodist Church," used in session 11, on pages 71-74 of The Book of Discipline, 2000.

We hope that you will continue to find this work challenging and helpful as you seek to lead in congregations and small groups as we grapple with the implications of our faith for our witness in the world.
