Published by ReSource (2015). Paperback. The question 'what does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus' is a key one for the church today. Alison has wide experience of helping people to answer this question, and this book offers a radical new contribution to the debate. Discipleship, Alison suggests, is about living and sharing our Christian faith, not just being taught it; it is not about what we know, but about who we are becoming. Defining discipleship as 'a form of apprenticeship undertaken in community', and drawing on her experience of working with people in ordinary communities all over the UK and in Africa, Alison offers a compelling mix of personal experience, real life stories and theological reflection. "If you are looking for something to excite people about Christian discipleship, "writes Bishop James Newcome in his Foreword, "this is it." Commendations: "Discipleship is an absolutely central part of our theology and of our Christian practice. And Alison Morgan is one of our finest Christian writers. I commend this book to anyone who wants to grow in Christ and to see their community grow too, spiritually, numerically and as Christ's mature followers." Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool "Alison Morgan writes with a rare blend of wisdom and inspiration. This beautiful book is peppered with story, challenge and hope. I cannot recommend Alison's work highly enough". Mark Russell, Chief Executive, Church Army "Alison Morgan has written a fine book on the Church's greatest challenge of our time - discipleship. Live this book and discover how God can change your life, your church and your community." Bishop Graham Cray, former leader of Fresh Expressions.
