+  The Adventure of Discipleship (full hour)

  • Description: Jesus instructed his followers to drop everything, take up their cross and follow him. Such a task is not easy and it is often marked with hardship, but it's also an adventure. We look at this adventure of discipleship through the lenses of the great adventures of fiction as we discuss responding to the call of discipleship with Daniel Keating.

    • The Adventure of Discipleship

      Jesus tells us that to be his disciple we must surrender everything and, with his grace, brave the path provided for us by God. Such a sojourn will surely be marked by joy, suffering, uncertainty, and above all adventure. Accordingly, The Adventure of Discipleship presents the Gospel through the lens of great adventure stories from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia to popular adventure movies, comic book superheroes, and TV series. While these stories we create and read and retell are but reflections and refractions of the great adventure of discipleship, they provide us with genuine insight into life with Christ. Author Daniel Keating shows why we must respond to the call of discipleship with venturesome faith, as many great saints have before us. Along the way of discipleship, we come to understand the cost of following Jesus, the importance of hope in light of setbacks, and the gift of true friendship in this great adventure. (learn more)
