It's time to get serious about discipleship

In this provocative and compelling book, internationally known missiologists Alan and Debra Hirsch cast a dynamic vision of mission-shaped discipleship.

"A desperately needed shot of spiritual adrenaline into our mild-mannered and mediocre attempts at following Christ."--from the foreword by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life

"You may find yourself uncomfortable with this book. If so, the Hirsches have succeeded. . . . It is a call to live a life that has stories to tell . . . to be untamed in your faith and in pursuit of the wild Savior, Jesus."--from the afterword by Neil Cole, author of Organic Leadership

"This dynamic duo gives prophetic voice to what it means to become missional, outwardly-focused followers of Jesus. This is a book to be read and wrestled with."--Margaret Feinberg, MargaretFeinberg.com; author of Scouting the Divine and The Organic God

"Alan and Debra Hirsch are prophets to a church imprisoned by domesticated, consumer values. Untamed is a vision of life with Jesus that goes beyond what other authors have covered."--Skye Jethani, author of The Divine Commodity; managing editor of Leadership Journal

"Refreshing, grounded, thoughtful . . . tantalizing."--Reggie McNeal, missional specialist, Leadership Network, Dallas, Texas; author of The Present Future and Missional Renaissance

"The demand for an intelligible path toward discipleship is one of the greatest needs of the post-Christendom church. In Untamed, Alan and Debra deliver beautifully." --Gabe Lyons, founder of Q and co-founder of Catalyst; coauthor of unChristian

"A captivating vision of the true Messiah. All who are unsatisfied with the boring safety of their tame Christianity need to read this book!" --Greg Boyd, senior pastor, Woodland Hills Church, St. Paul, Minnesota; author of Seeing Is Believing and Repenting of Religion

"Untamed is like Where the Wild Things Are applied to faith. The Hirsches encourage us to live life as a holy, messy adventure in the land of a loving God."--Sally Morgenthaler, author of Worship Evangelism and "Leadership in a Flattened World" in An Emergent Manifesto of Hope

"Untamed . . . is the fruit of a significant and penetrating analysis of American culture, candid conversations with key ministry leaders all over the U.S., and sheer gumption in holding up a flag for a radical, uncompromising discipleship. Untamed is the best book I have read this year."--Andrew Jones, developer, Church Mission Society;TallSkinnyKiwi.com
