How can Christians effectively engage today's world while staying true to Scripture? Calling us to listen well to both the Word and the world, John Stott shows how Christianity can preserve its authentic identity and remain relevant to current realities. With the God's Word for Today series, pastor Tim Chester has updated Stott's classic book The Contemporary Christian and made it accessible to new generations of readers. In The Disciple, Stott explores four often-neglected aspects of Christian discipleship in light of Scripture. First, followers of Jesus should be good listeners--to God, one another, and the world. Second, both the mind and emotions have an indispensable place in discipleship, and we should understand how they relate to each other. Third, how do we discover God's will for our lives, and what does the Bible tell us about guidance, vocation, and ministry? Finally, the primary distinguishing mark of a Christian is the first fruit of the Spirit: love. Following Christ encompasses all of life, and today's world desperately needs disciples who embrace their full God-given potential.
