Following Jesus: Biblical Reflections on Discipleship by N.T. Wright.
In N.T. ‘Tom’ Wright’s Following Jesus: Biblical Reflections on Discipleship, one finds the same compelling insights into the Bible that make Wright’s “The Bible for Everyone” series so popular. Rather than biblical commentary, in Following Jesus Wright describes Christian discipleship based on different images of Jesus Christ and a variety of religious themes. Discipleship proceeds from faith in Jesus Christ: crucified, risen, seated at God’s right hand with authority; all powers, dominions and authorities made subject to him. Discipleship – the commitment to follow Jesus – involves learning; it also involves teaching. The Great Commission is not just about making disciples but also about “teaching them to obey everything Jesus commanded us.”
