About-

In this little book Daniel Bourguet guides our meditations on three scriptural passages that lead the reader along the pathway ordained by Christ into the depths of his being. Successively, the disciple first follows behind Jesus along the way of perfect love (Mark 1:14-20); then experiences what it is to bear the yoke with Christ and there find rest (Matt 11:28-30); and finally enters the mystery of communion in which he is in Jesus and Jesus abides in him (John 15:1-17). It is a pathway passing from vocation to struggle and then to fellowship, but leading always to joy.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In Becoming a Disciple, we see the fruit of Bourget's years of intercession, spiritual direction, and insightful exegesis--all of this at the feet of Christ. Here we see how the Gospels lead us into intimate encounters and authentic discipleship." 
--Brad Jersak, Westminster Theological Centre (UK); Author of A More Christlike God and Her Gates Will Never Be Shut

"Daniel Bourguet's Becoming a Disciple is a masterpiece in contemplative biblical theology that will inspire you to new levels of attentiveness in both Scripture reading and prayer. Jesus' call of disciples to follow him takes on new richness due to Bourguet's erudition and extreme sensitivity to the nuances of the Greek text. The reader is inspired to draw closer to the resurrected Jesus in a brilliant and practical chapter on Matthew 11:2-30. Reading this book is to contemplate a compelling invitation to becoming a disciple yourself--stepping further and deeper into the mystery of divine intimacy of the Father and Holy Spirit alongside Jesus."
--Bob Ekblad, Tierra Nueva and The People's Seminary; Author of Reading the Bible with the Damned and A New Christian Manifesto
