Wayman Publishes Article for Lenten Study

By Carla Morris Wayman Publishes Article for Lenten Study

Ben Wayman ’02 assistant professor of philosophy and theology in the Bastian School of Theology, Philosophy, and Ministry and this year’s Andrews Fellow in Christian Unity, has authored an article that is featured in the spring curriculum quarterly Illustrated Bible Life (WordAction Publishing Company, 2017).

Titled “Remember Me,” the Lenten reflection recalls the request of the penitent thief who was crucified alongside Jesus. It refers to the account portrayed in Luke 23:26-46 and focuses on early Christian understandings of paradise. 

A not for profit publisher, WordAction provides curriculum resources to help people of all ages discover God’s Word.  The Illustrated Bible Life series draws from collaborative work of various scholars from the Wesleyan perspective, including The Salvation Army, Wesleyans, Evangelical Friends, Free Methodists, Nazarenes and Evangelical United Methodists.

Greenville College President Emeritus W. Richard Stephens has used Illustrated Bible Life for more than a decade to teach adult classes at the Greenville Free Methodist Church.

“People love it,” he says of the format. “It fosters deeper understanding through commentary, presents alternate views and then reflects on the Wesleyan perspective. A shorthand description of this approach might be ‘scholars speak to laity.’”
