"Upper Room Ministries has crafted a practical tool for assisting pilgrims on the journey of transformation," writes one reviewer. "The Way of Transforming Discipleship is for anyone who is on the Way to becoming a true Christ-follower. Not only is this a must-read, but even more so, it is a must-do resource!" A Partcipant's Guide is also available. A group experience of this resource consists of a preparatory meeting, weekly sessions, and a closing retreat. The Way of Transforming Discipleship is appropriate for any group that has completed the Companions in Christ 28-week foundational resource, or it may also be used as an introduction to this powerful initiative.
This new six-week Companions in Christ study challenges Christians from the viewpoint of a white South African pastor who has lived through the political changes in that country and experienced with rare vulnerability the spiritual struggles inherent in the processes of truth-telling, reconciliation, deep pain, and poverty. Trevor Hudson brings a message of vital, transforming spirituality through knowing who we are, changing from the inside out, listening to the groans of others, and discovering the deep spirituality of belonging.
Stephen D. Bryant is editor and publisher of Upper Room Ministries and a United Methodist pastor.
Trevor Hudson has been in the Methodist ministry for the past thirty odd years, spending most of this time in and around Johannesburg, South Africa. Presently he is part of the pastoral team at Northfield Methodist Church in Benoni where he preaches and teaches on a weekly basis. He has written nine books, including A Mile in My Shoes; Listening to the Groans, and Discovering Our Spiritual Identity which have recently been published in the U.S.
Much of his ministry has been shaped by two passions: helping ordinary people experience the transforming presence and power of Jesus in their everyday lives and helping people build the kind of local faith community which seeks to take seriously the suffering of those around them. His interests include watching sports, walking and running, discovering new places, reading and writing.
