""In Becoming a Disciple, we see the fruit of Bourget's years of intercession, spiritual direction, and insightful exegesis--all of this at the feet of Christ. Here we see how the Gospels lead us into intimate encounters and authentic discipleship.""
--Brad Jersak, Westminster Theological Centre (UK); Author ofA More Christlike GodandHer Gates Will Never Be Shut
""Daniel Bourguet'sBecoming a Discipleis a masterpiece in contemplative biblical theology that will inspire you to new levels of attentiveness in both Scripture reading and prayer. Jesus' call of disciples to follow him takes on new richness due to Bourguet's erudition and extreme sensitivity to the nuances of the Greek text. The reader is inspired to draw closer to the resurrected Jesus in a brilliant and practical chapter on Matthew 11:2-30.Reading this book is to contemplate a compelling invitation to becoming a disciple yourself--stepping further and deeper into the mystery of divine intimacy of the Father and Holy Spirit alongside Jesus.""
