Full Product Description
Krish has coined the term dysciples to describe those of us who feel dysfunctional in our following of Jesus. The good news is that dysfunctional discipleship is nothing new and nothing to be ashamed of.
The very first disciples were dysciples too; they were constantly getting even the most basic of things totally wrong. If Jesus best friends and first missionaries were such weak disciples, then that gives us hope. We can be comforted and excited by the thought that Jesus can love and use us, just as he loved and used Peter, James, John, Matthew and co.
The obstacles we face as dysciples today are just the same as those that tripped up Jesus' first band of brothers.
Suitable for a group study - Includes study questions relating t each chapter.

DysciplesDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
This book reassures those who feel like dysfunctional disciples, showing how the original twelve experienced many of the same difficulties and frailties as we do, and how Jesus dealt with them then and still does. With reference mainly to the book of Matthew, and the example of Peter, Krish links many examples from modern life to gospel episodes and shows how flawed followers are no barrier to Christ’s work. I found the links at the end of each section to further study elsewhere in the Bible particularly helpful. Christian life has never been easy and never will be in any age – nor should it be. This is not a twelve-point plan for perfection, nor is it an anodyne pat on the head for the failing, but a call to a realistic and forward-moving discipleship.
