Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking
Discipleship is not simply a book. It is a cry from the heart of a man passionately alive for God and the work of God. Arnold's words blow on the simmering coals of our hearts and set us on fire for Christ.
Midwest Book Review
Written over a span of several decades, Discipleship offers hard-won insights into the challenges of following Christ in the nitty-gritty of modern daily life. Many of the 300 short excerpts are down-to-earth answers to specific needs or problems. Still others address basic questions of Christian practice and belief, while still others grapple with broader themes such as world suffering, salvation, and the coming of the Kingdom of God. And all of them, no matter how uncompromising, are marked by the spirit of quiet certainty and compassion, and all of them will give fresh hope to any who find themselves lonely or disheartened in the daily search to follow Christ.
Anthony Campolo, Eastern College
"Discipleship" helps us to understand what spiritual goodness is all aboutreading it provides a mystic nurturing of the soul that will translate into social action-action that makes for justice in the world.
Richard T. McSorley, S.J., Georgetown University
Anyone interested in union with God in his daily life will find "Discipleship" valuable. Along with "The Imitation of Christ" and the sacred Scriptures themselves, Arnold's writings are a treasure from which flows a spring of living water to nourish the soul.
Don Mosley, Jubilee Partners
Reading Discipleship is like panning for gold near the mother lode; there are nuggets everywhere What strikes me over and over is the sense of down-to-earth authenticity that shines through Arnold's words. These words obviously come from a storehouse full of experiences. There is nothing tentative or theoretical about them. And they are full of love.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
I pray for all who read this book that they may come to follow Jesus more closely in their whole lives. He has not called us to be successful, but to be faithful.
Dale Aukerman, author, Reckoning with Apocalypse
In a masterful way, J. Heinrich Arnold brings together the evangelical offer of God's forgiving mercy and the radical claims of Jesus for total self-giving in discipleship. Arnold writes that "the greatest gift is a burning love to Christ." That love pervades this book.
