Risk-Shaped Discipleship: On Going Deeper into the Life of God


Make Friends with Change.

How do you live out your faith when everything is changing so fast? To those filled with anxiety, fear, and pessimism, Terry Biddington turns the question on its head: How could you possibly live out your faith if the times were not changing. After all, God is all about creativity; creation is all about wonder; the Gospel is all about the unexpected. And the Christian church is—or should be—all about improvising to the tune of hope, personified in the dance of one Jesus of Nazareth. It’s risky. It’s difficult. It’s deep into the life of God.

This book takes as its starting point the reality of change, and it seeks to explore how change may be seen positively by the church. It also seeks to help reinvigorate its teaching and ministry and the way in which Christians understand their spiritual journey. Change is seen not only as a welcome dynamic of the life of faith, but as the very source of unexpected and transformative encounters with God and the transcendent. For God is forever coming into the world, ceaselessly creating and opening up rich possibilities for new beginnings.
