Publisher's Summary

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 the 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.

Uncomfortable Reality

I needed this important book. Though theologically conservative, I am edgy in Missional practice...at least I thought I was before this book. You will not agree with all that this book says, but when that happens, ask why. Your answers might surprise you. Regardless, this is a must read.
