Description

Christians who serve Jesus among people from a different culture than their own often struggle to find a good way to disciple people. Walking Together on the Jesus Road addresses this need by guiding readers through three essential practices for making disciples across cultures: listening to disciples to get to know them and their context, focusing on relationships with Christ, fellow disciples, and others, and enabling disciples to live out their faith in culturally relevant ways. These practices are the foundation for the long-term, intentional process of helping disciples from other cultures become more like Jesus. The book also engages with practical challenges, such as enabling disciples to find and belong to a nurturing community of faith, as well as contextualizing the way we teach the Bible.

Endorsements

Many times discussions about discipling others cross culturally center around taking the best from our home culture and translating those ideas or materials. This book offers tools to the cross cultural discipler to better discern what intercultural discipleship looks like, and describes the various processes to get there. I would highly recommend reading this book together as a team.
