Some Neglected Aspects of Our Calling
Why I picked up this book:
Since I am a blogger that regularly writes book reviews, I received this book from Intervarsity Press.
Who Should Read The Radical Disciple:
I recommend this book for any believer who cares about practically living out his or her Christian faith. It will also be enriching and beneficial for church leaders, and those who are intentional about holistic discipleship. It’s a thoughtful, yet short and quick read.
What’s in Store for You:
This is my first time reading a book written by John Stott, someone who Christianity Today Leadership Journal calls “one of the giants of evangelical Christianity in the last century.” I found his writing clear and easy flowing, grounded in biblical text and affirmed through many years of faithfully serving our God and king. Stott is no longer with us on earth but his words remain to lead, guide, and encourage still.
Stott correctly understands discipleship as a call and obedience to follow Christ, and not simply a profession of Christian faith. He unapologetically calls readers to submit to the authority of Christ, and to consider eight areas where we tend to neglect or forget our Christian calling.
