By choosing to follow Jesus, setting off on the road of discipleship, we embark upon an adventure that will challenge us and take us into unknown territory, Along he way we will surely face all kinds of ‘hills’, times of struggle that present us with a stark challenge: do we press on, growing in strength and determination, or do we give up and turn back?
This book explores what we can learn from the stories of some of Jesus’ disciples: Andrew, Peter, James, Mary Magdalene, Thomas and Matthew. Their experiences, their triumphs and failures of faith and, above all, their relationship with Jesus offer us help and guidance as we seek to follow him as disciples today.
