Beginning a Discussion about Discipleship

I have some resources regarding discipleship that would be easier to share via this blog so they are readily accessible.  Here is the first one!

The attached article is an entry from the Oxford Handbook of Evangelical Theology, 2010. I won’t take the time to introduce Dallas Willard to you at this point.  After you read the article you will have a pretty good idea of his capacity for historical insight and contemporary commentary.

This article is particularly helpful in understanding some of the development of the idea of being a disciple and how it has morphed in the past 150 years.  For a fuller consideration, read Dallas Willard’s book Divine Conspiracy.

Here is the link to the article in PDF format: Willard – Discipleship
