Craig Drurey -11- Craig Drurey authored a book titled Relational Discipleship: Moving Back Home with God. It is published by Wipf and Stock. God is waiting for each of us to return home! In fact, God is already out in the world searching and inviting each person to take the journey back to God's house. Relational Discipleship: Moving Back Home with God approaches discipleship from a fresh perspective and intentionally draws on biblical principles and examples of discipleship. In this approach, the metaphor of a house is used to describe our journey back to God. Hospitality plays a key factor in how discipleship, from this perspective, warmly calls each person forward in each step. Other modes of discipleship are solely focused on transformation of the disciple. Here, in this model, the transformation of the discipler must occur first. Then, the discipler can be a warm host helping other travelers on the path to God's house. Join in the journey today and see how Relational Discipleship offers the call to move back home with God.
