It's time to get serious about discipleship
In this provocative and compelling book, internationally known missiologists Alan and Debra Hirsch cast a dynamic vision of mission-shaped discipleship. Untamed exposes the idolatrous clutter that fills our lives and seeks to recapture what it means to be authentic followers of Jesus. Each chapter ends with suggested practices to help you start living out the book's principles, as well as questions for group discussion.
"A desperately needed shot of spiritual adrenaline into our mild-mannered and mediocre attempts at following Christ."--from the foreword by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life
"You may find yourself uncomfortable with this book. If so, the Hirsches have succeeded. . . . It is a call to live a life that has stories to tell . . . to be untamed in your faith and in pursuit of the wild Savior, Jesus."--from the afterword by Neil Cole, author of Organic Leadership
"This dynamic duo gives prophetic voice to what it means to become missional, outwardly-focused followers of Jesus. This is a book to be read and wrestled with."--Margaret Feinberg, MargaretFeinberg.com; author of Scouting the Divine and The Organic God
"Alan and Debra Hirsch are prophets to a church imprisoned by domesticated, consumer values. Untamed is a vision of life with Jesus that goes beyond what other authors have covered."--Skye Jethani, author of The Divine Commodity; managing editor of Leadership Journal
"Refreshing, grounded, thoughtful . . . tantalizing."--Reggie McNeal, missional specialist, Leadership Network, Dallas, Texas; author of The Present Future and Missional Renaissance
"The demand for an intelligible path toward discipleship is one of the greatest needs of the post-Christendom church. In Untamed, Alan and Debra deliver beautifully." --Gabe Lyons, founder of Q and co-founder of Catalyst; coauthor of unChristian
"A captivating vision of the true Messiah. All who are unsatisfied with the boring safety of their tame Christianity need to read this book!" --Greg Boyd, senior pastor, Woodland Hills Church, St. Paul, Minnesota; author of Seeing Is Believing and Repenting of Religion
"Untamed is like Where the Wild Things Are applied to faith. The Hirsches encourage us to live life as a holy, messy adventure in the land of a loving God."--Sally Morgenthaler, author of Worship Evangelism and "Leadership in a Flattened World" in An Emergent Manifesto of Hope
"Untamed . . . is the fruit of a significant and penetrating analysis of American culture, candid conversations with key ministry leaders all over the U.S., and sheer gumption in holding up a flag for a radical, uncompromising discipleship. Untamed is the best book I have read this year."--Andrew Jones, developer, Church Mission Society;TallSkinnyKiwi.com
