Apprenticed to Jesus

Discipleship Practices for Growing Christians  

by Thomas R. Hawkins
Clergy & Laity Discipleship Spiritual Practice
Using the call narratives in the Gospels of Mark and Matthew, Apprenticed to Jesus: Discipleship Practices for Growing Christians connects discipleship with the purpose and mission of the church: our participation in God's plan to heal a broken creation. Hawkins locates the origins of discipleship not only in Jesus' call to his disciples but also to God's call to Abraham, Sarah, and Moses. This book is excellent for small groups and pastors, Christian educators, and church leaders responsible for discipleship formation. Apprenticed to Jesus will motivate participants to reflect on their own discipleship in engaging and effective ways. Pastors, Christian educators, and church leaders responsible for discipleship formation will find this an invaluable resource.
