God is waiting for each of us to return home! In fact, God is already out in the world searching and inviting each person to take the journey back to God's house. Relational Discipleship: Moving Back Home with God approaches discipleship from a fresh perspective and intentionally draws on biblical principles and examples of discipleship. In this approach, the metaphor of a house is used to describe our journey back to God. Hospitality plays a key factor in how discipleship, from this perspective, warmly calls each person forward in each step. Other modes of discipleship are solely focused on transformation of the disciple. Here, in this model, the transformation of the discipler must occur first. Then, the discipler can be a warm host helping other travelers on the path to God's house. Join in the journey today and see how Relational Discipleship offers the call to move back home with God. ""Craig Drurey has written a brilliant book! The prose is accessible and the ideas winsome. This book makes discipleship matter for the contemporary age, and I suspect it will spark new endeavors in helping us to live lives of love. Get this book!"" --Thomas Jay Oord, author of The Uncontrolling Love of God ""The image of discipleship as heading for the home God has prepared for us is so compelling, and Craig's way of describing that journey is so inviting, I cannot imagine anyone reading this book without thinking, 'This is the life I have always wanted.'"" --Steve Harper, retired professor of Spiritual Formation and Wesley Studies ""Drurey makes a compelling case for integrating hospitality back into disciple-making and holiness teaching in Relational Discipleship. This is an excellent resource for equipping missionaries and other disciple-makers to evangelize North America in our generation."" --R. Mark Montgomery, equipping leader, The Church of the Nazarene ""Craig's use of the metaphor of 'coming home' to describe the journey of discipleship makes this resource readily accessible to persons in the local church. I recommend this book to any leader who struggles with how to encourage believers to grow as disciples of Jesus."" --Richard Fitzgerald, elder, Great Plains Conference United Methodist Church ""As lead pastor, I have been privileged to be involved with Craig in outreach and discipleship ministry for 3 years. I have observed him successfully use this model of relational discipleship as he has nurtured young and seasoned believers in their faith."" --Raynard L.
