Excerpt


The last command Jesus gave before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call to "make disciples of all the nations." But Christians have responded by making "Christians," not "disciples." This, according to renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission. Drawing upon previously published articles from magazines such as Christianity Today and Leadership Journal as well as remarks given at various conferences, Willard challenges the thought that we can be Christians without being disciples. He calls on believers to restore what should be the heart of Christianity - being active disciples of Jesus Christ. Willard shows us that in the school of life, we are apprentices of the Teacher whose brilliance encourages us to rise above traditional church understanding and embrace the true meaning of discipleship - an active, concrete, 24/7 life with Jesus.

Excerpt


Seeing both liberal and fundamentalist Christians imprisoned in the epistemological presuppositions of the Enlightenment, Bishop Newbigin attempts to unmask the unspoken and concealed conditions that have intimidated and effectively held Christians in check. The best form of apologetics, he contends, is the preaching of the particular yet universal gospel.

Lesslie Newbigin is a prominent leader of the ecumenical movement and has served as general secretary of the International Missionary Council and as associate general secretary fo the World Council of Churches.
     


 
Jesus' Call to DiscipleshipJesus' Call to Discipleship

Excerpt


This book deals with the role of discipleship in Christianity. Dunn explores the original meaning of discipleship in the early church and then discusses what discipleship should mean for Christians today. The evidence in the Gospels regarding the requirements of discipleship, including the beliefs and daily character of the life of a disciple, are explored, and a firm basis upon which a tradition of discipleship can be defined is found. Important questions addressed are: To whom was Jesus' call primarily directed? What were the characteristics of the community of disciples which formed around Jesus in his lifetime and how has the character of that community, which has become the Christian church, changed over time?

Excerpt


We are told to "love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind" (Matt. 22:37). Uh, yeah, right, all your heart, soul and mind. Just exactly how does one do that? Particularly, how can I love God with my mind? Ever asked those questions? Philippians 4:8 tells us what to do ("think on these things"), but does not give advice on how or in what manner. And very few books have been written offering a viable answer. There are some, however, and James Sire's Discipleship of the Mind is one of the best.

Ultimately, the question becomes one of how "we can learn to honor God in the ways we think," and to answer that, one must first know what it means to honor God. For Sire, a large part of this is making sure that our attitudes about God are correct, i.e., that what we believe about God is based on God's revelation of His character in the Bible. Thus discipleship of the mind starts with a proper (biblical) understanding of wisdom and how fear (of the Lord) and humilty are related to that understanding.

The acquisition of wisdom, biblical wisdom, becomes the method and means for honoring God with one's mind. For biblical wisdom implies action and thought together, so that one's deeds in life are determined by one's worldview. So Sire sets out to describe what he understands as the worldview that best fits the biblical description, Christianity. The answers that Christianity has for various worldview questions become the basis for chapters about reality, human nature, and the meaning of human history. And the application becomes the impetus for chapters on techonology, learning, and cultural enterprises like literature and media.

Sire wants to engage your mind at every step of the process. Discipleship of the Mind is at once informative and practical, pointing us to greater action and devotion. Its bibliography is a wonderful tool for further study, which is, of course, one of the goals of the book. So join with Sire and begin the discipleship of your mind.
