On Growing in Wisdom and Hope
For those involved in discipling others and anyone looking for a deeper, richer relationship with God.
Are you looking to move beyond a superficial grasp of faith and find the riches that God promises in His Word?
Learn how we can hold on to hope while journeying through darkness, and live meaningfully in a world where things don’t always seem to make sense.
In exploring Christian discipleship, Alister McGrath encourages us to move beyond a superficial grasp of our faith to discover its depth and riches. He sees discipleship as a process of growth in wisdom: we absorb a Christian vision of reality, allow it to percolate in our minds and then inform how we see things, think about them and act.
Helpfully drawing on the astute and illuminating insights of Dorothy L. Sayers, C. S. Lewis, John Stott and J. I. Packer, the author suggests how we can hold on to hope while journeying through darkness, and live meaningfully in a world where things don’t always seem to make sense.
‘Alister McGrath offers an appealing and lucid demonstration of theology understood as a “reflective inhabitation” of the Christian faith. This wise and elegant book shows the urgent importance of a Christian mind for faithful discipleship that engages the contemporary world. It should be essential reading for every pastor and every thoughtful Christian layperson.’
