Living for Christ in the Daily Grind
J. Heinrich Arnold
Get the Book
Sometimes sensitive, sometimes provocative, but always encouraging, Arnold guides readers toward leading Christlike lives amid the stress and strain of modern life. Perhaps the hardest thing about following Christ is translating our good intentions into deeds. Christ calls us, and we yearn to answer him, but time and again we lose resolve. Is discipleship really possible today? Many of the selections in this book offer answers to specific needs or problems. Others grapple with broader themes such as world suffering, salvation, and the coming of the kingdom of God. All of them pulsate with conviction and compassion, giving fresh hope to those who and themselves lonely or disheartened in the daily search to follow Christ.
Also available, a free Study Guide (English .pdf) for personal or group study, and a Leader's Guide to facilitate group discussion.

Discipleship is not simply a book. It is a cry from the heart of a man passionately alive for God.
Tony Campolo, author, Red Letter Christians
Discipleship helps us to understand what spiritual goodness is all about…It provides a mystic nurturing of the soul that translates into action that makes for justice.
Jürgen Moltmann, author, Theology of Hope
I have not experienced a book like this except when reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Christoph Blumhardt. Arnold sees beyond the present into the wonderful future of God’s kingdom.
Cardinal Joseph O’Connor, Archdiocese of New York
…a clear call to greater conviction and faith. Readers who open their hearts to the witness of this book will be challenged and inspired.
