Untamed: Reactivating a Missional Form of Discipleship


SKU: 450

Only 1 Left in Stock!

Discipleship is costly. Are we willing to critique and even challenge much we've been taught for the sake of the kingdom? For this is the radical nature of the discipleship to which Jesus calls us. He did not allow the outside culture to hold him captive; instead he established the kingdom of God and turned the world on its head. Jesus was untamed, and he calls his church to be the same.

In this provocative and compelling book, internationally known missiologists Alan and Debra Hirsch overthrow culturized understandings of theology and culture, and cast a vision for a distinctly mission-shaped way of living the Christian life. Written for any Christian serious about issue of discipleship, Untamed covers such topics as church, humans as bearers of the image of God, family life, culture, and sexuality. Through it all they seek to answer the question, how are we to think and live day to day as followers of Jesus?

Each chapter ends with suggested practices to help readers begin to live out the book's principles as well as questions for group discussion.

"Untamed is a desperately needed shot of spiritual adrenaline into our mild-mannered and mediocre attempts at following Christ." --From the foreword by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose-Driven Life

"You may find yourself uncomfortable with this book. If so, the Hirsches have succeeded. . . . It is a call to live a life that has stories to tell...to be untamed in your faith and in pursuit of the wild Savior, Jesus." --from the afterword by Neil Cole, author of Organic Leadership

"This dynamic duo gives prophetic voice to what it means to become missional, outwardly-focused followers of Jesus. This is a book to be read and wrestled with--a much needed resource for the church today." --Margaret Feinberg, MargaretFeinberg.com; author of Scouting the Divine and The Organic God

"Untamed is a vision of life with Jesus that goes beyond what other authors have covered. Alan and Debra courageously tackle even taboo subjects to show that life with Christ is more than we often imagine it to be." --Skye Jethani, author of The Divine Commodity; managing editor of Leadership Journal
