Endorsements & Reviews-
"I strongly recommend The Radical Disciple to every person who senses how terribly addicted to greed and violence our society and the rest of the world is becoming, and yet refuses to give up hope! This book is especially important to all who recognize that Jesus confronted just such a world and that he taught and demonstrated exactly how we should respond to it. Bill Doulos writes eloquently and with passion about such things precisely because he himself has been putting those teachings into practice in dramatic, concrete ways for many years."

"In writing about faith, culture, justice, and power, Bill Doulos draws us to see ourselves and our neighbors differently. Jesus is among us, and he is in the midst of the silenced and often messy neighborhoods that are frequently marginalized by society's habits and the fears and addictions that too often accompany despair. Doulos believes we are invited to follow Jesus, and even though these essays were written in the 1970s they are clear and compelling today."

"I knew Bill Lane in college, and Bill Doulos in seminary. I have known him sporadically over the past forty years. Bill, as much as any person I have known, has tried to make his life cohere with his words. In this book we hear Bill forty years ago when his disappointment with the church and himself gave a hard edge to his presentation of the gospel message to give away everything that binds us to the world and follow Jesus. The offense that this message gives is not finally due to Bill's style, but to the unvarnished content of the gospel. And Bill gets that right. I like Bill's Afterword best. In it we hear him reconciled to the church and himself through the hard experience of living out the gospel. I hope we can yet hear the same gospel message from Bill enhanced by the experiences of the last forty years."
