Book Description :

There is currently no shared language of vocation among Catholics in the developed, post-modern world of Europe and North America. The decline in practice of the faith and a weakened understanding of Church teaching has led to reduced numbers of people entering into marriage, religious life and priesthood. Uniquely, this book traces the development of vocation from scriptural, patristic roots through Thomism and the Reformation to engage with the modern vocational crisis. How are these two approaches compatible? The universal call to holiness is expressed in Lumen Gentium has been read by some as meaning that any vocational choice has the same value as any other such choice; is some sense of a higher calling part of the Catholic theology of vocation or not? Some claim that the single life is a vocation on a par with marriage and religious life; what kind of a theology of vocation leads to that conclusion? And is the secular use of the word 'vocation' to describe certain profession helpful or misleading in the context of Catholic theology?

Book Description :

Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. MacArthur draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you.

Book Description :

If you want to be happy, make disciples.Jesus told us: "If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love....that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full."Obedience to Jesus produces joy. And He left us a clear directive to obey until He returns: "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the end of the age."So we know exactly what we're to obey-and He promised to be with us as we obey. 'Being' disciples means 'making' disciples. And when we make disciples, we teach them to obey everything Jesus commanded. Why? Because, as we've seen, obedience to Jesus produces joy.When it comes to making disciples, our role is straightforward: we simply obey the commands of our Master. Jesus likened the Kingdom of heaven to a King who put on a wedding banquet for his son-and sent his servants to tell those who were invited that the feast was ready. It's a parable, but it describes in a real way what the Lord is doing to draw people to Himself: Jesus sends those who already belong to Him to bear witness to those who do not yet know Him and invite them to the Marriage Support of the Lamb in the age to come.Our task is simple. Our work is urgent. And our obedience to Jesus is the path to our own joy.

Book Description :

Mark wrote "the beginning of the Gospel" for Christians who thought it was the end. For that he told them a story of another time when Jesus' disciples thought it was the end but turned out to be the beginning. That is why the passion-resurrection of Jesus dominates the Gospel according to Mark. Using rhetorical and literary analysis, the author introduces Mark's story as the beginning of the Gospel as we enter the new millennium.

Book Description :

LENT This Lenten study looks at the twelve disciples as they tried to follow Jesus and live the challenging life to which he had called them. Examining the mistakes of the Twelve can help us to assess our own discipleship in order to see where it may need strengthening. During these weeks of Lent, as we join the Twelve in their on-the-job-training to become disciples of Jesus, we hope to find guidance for our pilgrimage. This seven-session study, appropriate for both group and individual use, provides one lesson for each week in Lent. Each lesson includes a Scripture reference, a brief reflection, questions for study or discussion, a brief prayer, and a focus for the coming week. MARY JANE GORMAN is a writer, teacher, and retreat leader living in Greenville, South Carolina, and she is the author of the book Tending Body, Heart, Mind & Soul: Following Jesus in Caring for Ourselves (Abingdon Press). Formerly professor of economics at Furman University, she has served on the board of United Ministries, a nonprofit community organization, and is a leader in First Baptist Church, Greenville.

Book Description :

The Call Bible Study Book is an intentional 6-session disciple-making study that answers the question "Who am I as a disciple of Christ?" More than a Bible study on identity, The Call is a disciple-making resource that emphasizes practice and mentoring for group settings of multiple sizes to take disciples on a journey into what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. Like all the releases in the Disciples Path series, The Call uses teaching, questions, conversation, exercises, and individual study to facilitate transformational discipleship. It begins by exploring the question "Who is Jesus?" Then it takes group members through the priorities of a disciple, the cost of a disciple, and the fruit of a disciple. Far too often we neglect to teach the trust cost of discipleship. It could end up costing everything, but true discipleship is worth that and even more. The sessions include: 1. Who Is Jesus? 2. What Did Jesus Do? 3. Following Jesus 4. The Priorities of a Disciple 5. The Cost of a Disciple 6. The Fruit of a Disciple The study includes an introduction to the weekly session topic, guided prayer options, and Scripture focus with text and narrative explanation that drives the weekly meeting. Also included each week are discussion questions and group exercises that reinforce the primary teaching points of each topic. Individual study and out-of-group activities have all been crafted to help users take their next step as disciples of Christ. These optional activities include but are not limited to reading plans, prayer exercises, personal study, and journaling. Features: Bible study format, content, and activities created and written by practicing disciple-makers Individual exercises to provide opportunities to practice discipleship A personal Bible study plan Benefits: Examine six facets of what it means to follow Christ. Facilitate transformation through modeling and practice. Use as a "handbook" for one-on-one or two-on-one discipleship situations. Lead effectively--requires minimal leader preparation and allows the facilitator to model what it means to be a disciple. Initiate an intentional discipleship path with individuals or groups.

Book Description :

The words of Jesus still have the power to change the world and set people free. Unfortunately, the problem we have seen over the last 2000 years is that religion and the traditions of men have been slowly pulling people away from the simple truth and original call of Jesus. "The Call of Jesus," by Torben S√łndergaard, is like an easy to understand "instruction manual" pulled from Scripture to help us effectively live the life to which Jesus has called us. Using Jesus' words in Luke chapter 10, Torben refreshingly reveals that Jesus' message was not only for His disciples and those who lived during that period of time, but it is also for all of us who are living today. Will you heed "The Call of Jesus"?

Book Description :

The Christian faith community regards the making of disciples as a prime directive of Jesus himself, though this theme is not dominant in contemporary models of teaching in the church. This investigation seeks to develop a theory of discipling and to test its congruence as an effective educational strategy with the objectives of modern Christian faith communities. After briefly examining the discipling model of teaching as practiced in the world of the Ancient Near East, a detailed study of New Testament texts investigates the practice of discipling by Jesus and his followers and in the church of the first century. An understanding of the concept of discipling is gained by gradually refining its definition as the study progresses through a contemporary examination of other informal models of education. Religious and educational research findings are explored to enable the validity of the discipling model to be determined. Finally, the definition is used as a benchmark to examine various contemporary educational theories within the community of faith. In contrast to the schooling model, discipling has been shown to be an effective model for teaching attitudes, values, and behavior as well as knowledge and beliefs in today's church. Its emphasis on commitment to learning relationships within a nurturing community and active involvement in the mission of Christ to the world, and its capacity to adapt to differences in age, culture, ability, and interests, make it a model of teaching worthy of much greater attention by the Christian faith community.
