    Distinctive Discipleship

    In "The Radical Disciple" John Stott calls for those who call themselves Christians to recognize the distinctiveness of "discipleship" for the true follower of Christ. I had forgotten the compelling nature of John Stott's writing. By the end of the second sentence of chapter one Stott had my attention. Words like radical, non conformist, sacrifice, and holiness are the easiest to assimilate into daily living. "Escapism" and "conformism" are more typical of many well meaning Christians today. Stott points to another kind of conformism in chapter two, a conformity to Christ likeness. He goes on to provide the Biblical basis, some New Testament examples, and the practical consequences. Insightful instruction. Chapters four and five "Creation Care" and "Simplicity" left me unsettled. I am going to have to revisit my personal Christian world view in light of today's environment of political mistrust, international unrest, and religious division. The chapters "Dependence" and "Death" are important and soul searching. Stott's writing is clearly Biblical and cross cultural. John Stott's life exemplifies "The Radical Disciple" he writes about. A Complimentary Review Copy of the book was provided by Inter Varsity Press.

    short read, good points

    In the book The Radical Disciple author John Stott shares eight characteristics of the lifestyle of a disciple of Christ. When thinking what I would share about this book, I realized this is a rather basic book but has information that we need to remember as Christians. It's good to be reminded of the important things of life as disciples.

    Some of the topics covered include nonconformity, maturity, creation care, and balance. The chapter on creation care was interesting since the environment is such a big issue it seems nowadays. The author makes the point that a wasteful lifestyle does not show worship to the Creator.

    The book was read by Grover Gardner. Honestly, I did not really enjoy listening to his reading of this book.

    Thank you to the christianaudio Reviewers Program for providing this audio book to me for my honest review.
