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.
Henri J. M. Nouwen, from the Foreword
Discipleship is a prophetic book in a time in which few people dare to speak unpopular but truly healing words.
I pray for all who read this book that they may come to follow Jesus more closely in their whole lives. He has not called us to be successful, but to be faithful.
Jimmy Carter, Former President, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
I have found Discipleship to be an incisive and inspirational Christian guidebook. It is a clear call to higher religious ideals.
Elisabeth Elliot, speaker and author
I have been very impressed with Arnold’s work, and find it thoroughly scriptural and very practical – right down my alley.
Tony Campolo, author, Red Letter Christian
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.
