Description

The call to Christian discipleship is a call to adventure. Holy Habits explores the nature of that adventure through a rich mix of biblical material and inspiring stories. The nurturing role of the ten holy habits of discipleship as seen in Acts 2 is then explored. The ten habits are: biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, prayer, giving, service, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship and making more disciples. Each chapter has suggestions for further reflection and action that can be used individually or by smaller or larger Christian communities.

Review quote

Grounded in practice and real-life stories and surrounded by theory, erudition and wide reading, this is one of the best books I've read on discipleship. The examples come from all round the world, from different sources, from Fresh Expressions and traditional Christians, from elderly people and young ones, women as well as men. I love the way the habits are every day, ordinary, do-able ones. This feels very godly. Lucy Moore Messy Church.
