Called to Follow (Book Three of the Going Deeper: A Journey with Jesus series) uses the outline of the baptismal covenant from the Affirmation of Baptism service to describe the characteristics of what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus. Christians at all points on their faith journeys will find this to be an in-depth and challenging companion. We learn to live in God daily, “walking wet,” living out our baptism, born anew to become the hands and feet of Christ for the world.
