Review:

[On Mere Discipleship]: Alister McGrath offers an appealing and lucid demonstration of theology understood as a "reflective inhabitation" of the Christian faith. This wise and elegant book shows the urgent importance of a Christian mind for faithful discipleship that engages the contemporary world. It should be essential reading for every pastor and every thoughtful Christian layperson. [On ] Author: Jeffrey P. Greenman, President, Regent College, Vancouver
