Dr. R. J. Stamps, Dean of the Chapel, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, KY
“Recently, it was my privilege to teach, as well as to preach, at the Robert E. Webber Institute of Worship Studies in Jackonsonville, FL. I was singularly impressed with both the rich scholarship and the profound worship manifest there…indeed, I could hardly tell the difference!
“Charles Wesley appealed to 18th century Methodists: ‘Let us unite the two so long divided: Knowledge and Vital Piety!’ Many have responded to Wesley’s challenge, most with limited success. In my estimation, none have taken it quite so seriously and realized it as successfully as IWS.
“To be part of this worshipping academic community is to witness first hand ‘the human mind being taught to worship and the human heart being taught to think!’ What a delight for my wife and I to be committed partners with this vital ministry to The Church of Jesus Christ!”
