Written for the general reader by one of our greatest living theologians, this book will help you to see more clearly, love more dearly and follow more nearly the way of Jesus Christ.
Here is quite the most beautiful writing on discipleship I know. I am grateful for the inspiration that I find in these pages. I commend it to those who have been on this journey a long time, as well as to anyone who wonders what on earth following Jesus is all about.
Whether you are just starting to explore the Christian faith, or have been a follower of Jesus for years, here is an essential guide for the journey. Drawing deeply on scripture and on inspiring stories of fellow travellers, Rowan Williams writes with a gentle strength that witnesses to the joy to be found in being disciples of Jesus.
In this gentle and challenging book, Rowan Williams gives us both a clear explanation of what discipleship is and a stirring vision of what our discipleship can do. It is a beautifully crafted book that gives the reader real food for thought and sustenance for the journey . . . Each chapter would make for wonderful house group discussion material.
Rowan Williams is one of the great theologians of our time. He is also an inspiring teacher whose godly wisdom helps us understand profound truths.
A wonderful book. . . It perfectly encapsulates the well-worn phrase “simplicity on the other side of complexity”, which makes it accessible as well as heart-warming. . . This gem of a book is clearly born of the authors own deep love for Jesus Himself.
If discipleship is a journey, this book belongs in the rucksack. . . Like the scriptures on which it is based, it deserves repeated reading.
I finished the book with slight surprise: being disciples seems do-able, even with the challenges! I hope this book will be read and shared so that others may be encouraged in being disciples.
A rich treasure trove.
