The Politics of Discipleship : Becoming Post-material Citizens
Graham Ward is well known for his thoughtful engagement with postmodernism and contemporary critical theology. In this publication he provides a broader audience with an engaging account of the inherently political nature of postmodernity and thoughts on what it means to live the Christian faith within that setting. Ward provides an accessible guide to contemporary postmodernism and its wide-ranging implications and develops a model of discipleship that informs a faith seeking understanding, which Ward describes as 'the substance of the church's political life'.

'Graham Ward's The Politics of Discipleship is an extraordinary book. Ward does nothing less than help us see how worldA" and churchA" implicate each other by providing an insightful and learned account of the transformation of democracy, the perversities of globalization, and the ambiguities of secularization. Perhaps even more significant is his theological proposal for the difference the church can make in the world so described.' Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University
