A new book has recently hit the market: Disciple by Bill Clem. Not to judge a book by its cover, but the book does have a really cool cover graphic. From the sounds of some of the reviews, the contents of the book will exceed the draw of the cover art. The book examines what it means to be a disciple of Jesus and how one becomes a part of the story of Jesus.
The author is interviewed by Mark Driscoll and explains the big ideas in the book in a video interview. A short snapshot of the contents of the video (from the webpage):
“These days, one of the vogue words is “story.” Everybody wants to tell their story and invite Jesus into their story. But… that’s far too small of an understanding of Jesus, and a disciple is someone who takes up the offer to become a part of the story of Jesus Christ. Discipleship is not a fill-in-the-blank formula; it’s about creating an identity and lifestyle in pursuit of Jesus Christ.”
