Portada
Rowman & Littlefield, 1999 - 181 páginas
Discipleship is how the life, example, and teachings of Jesus touch our lives at the practical level. The Synoptic traditions, John, and Paul portray discipleship in ways that are distinct, yet complementary. Following Christ looks at the different ways in which the New Testament deals with discipleship from the earliest writings of St. Paul through the Gospels and up to the Book of Revelation. Following Christ walks you through these models, pointing out the diverse and uniquely personal paths that have been walked before. Accessible New Testament scholarship that speaks to the basic vocation of Christian discipleship. Following Christ is ideal for vocation directors, New Testament scholars, pastors, spiritual directors, study groups, and anyone who wants to see how people in the New Testament responded to Jesus call.
