Below is the format I plan to do this year for each book I read.

148783Title: Following Jesus: Biblical Reflections on Discipleship

Author: N.T. Wright

What’s it about: The book is about the what it looks like for someone to be a follower of Jesus.

Why did I read it: I have the opportunity to lead a workshop at Reload in Chicago this spring. It’s been part of my research.

Favorite idea:
In Chapter 5, Wright makes this statement: “Disciples” means not just head-learners, not just heart-learners, but life-learners. We have to discover, through prayer, study of the Scriptures, and above all devotion to Jesus himself such as we express when we come to his table, how we in our generation can implement the decisive victory which he won.
