Item Description...
Overview
Countless Christians live a frustrating live between the guilt of passivity and exhaustion from endless activity for God. Douglas Webster brings Christians this book, The Discipline of Surrender: Biblical Images of Discipleship to help them realize that there is a sense of peace from surrendering our lives to God. Webster explores the bible to illuminate the hear and soul of life in Christ, in hopes of propelling us toward lives of humility, courage, and complete dependence on God.

Publishers Description
The Christian Life often seems to involve swinging back and forth between guilty passivity before God and exhausting activity for God. Douglas Webster helps us get past such a frustrating and false dilemma by showing how Christian discipleship brings together the vitality of discipline under the peace of a continuing surrender to the initiative of God. By exploring the rich images used throughout the Bible, The Disciple of Surrender illuminates the heart and soul of life in Christ. The down-to-earth images of altar and lamb, thorn and trumpet, farmer's yoke and shepherd' staff powerfully convey to us the patter of life poured out on us from God. Mundane objects such as towel and basin, manna and donkey humbly serve as God's object lessons to capture our prayerful imaginations and propel us toward lives of courage, humility and flat-out dependence on God. This book is for all those who are wary of simple techniques or sure-fire methods for following Jesus but who are seeking a deeper, richer and biblically sound source for their spiritual nourishment. Douglas D. Webster (PhD., St. Michael's College, Toronto School of Theology) is pastor of First Presbyterian Church in San Diego, California. He also teaches courses at Bethel Seminary, San Diego, and Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Canada. He is author of eight books, including A Passion for Christ and Soulcraft.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Surrender to the One who can change you life . . .  Jan 14, 2002
What a gentle and humble book! Not to be confused with icons, Biblical images are simple, everyday items that can - if we are striving to find God's glory in all His creation - lead us to a deeper understanding of His power, majesty, and glory! Douglas Webster kindly reminds us that we are without excuse. God has illustrated His will and truth with the mundane - Biblical images like the Unadorned Alter; the Lamb of God; the Thorn in the Flesh; the Towel and Basin; the Empty Tomb; and others. Unlike other books that promote Christian "success," Webster gently points us - through these timeless images - to what a Christian's true calling is . . . "take up your cross and follow Me."
