Cooking breakfast, driving to work, sorting out the laundry, answering e-mails ... All of these activities are as much part of our daily discipleship as praying, singing in church or teaching Sunday school. For the spiritual life is first of all a life.
'This book grounds discipleship in the life of the individual and the church, but sees its outworking as being in the world,' says the author.
Jesus does not call us to a journey of guilt and failure, stuffy religion or a kind of churchy straitjacket. He calls us to a life of obedience, harmony, joy and peace. We become 'liberated disciples'.
It's about becoming a new and different person through the cross of Jesus, and then finding that in Jesus we have found our truest and most authentic selves.
