This is a practical book. It offers easy-to-read text and plenty of illustrations. It is a good book for anyone wanting to understand what Christianity, discipling, and worldview have to do with everyday life. I have seen high school students and theologians discuss it with equal excitement.
It is written decidedly from a biblical perspective. If you want a book to make plain what others seem to muddle -- buy this book. Darrow Miller does an admirable job of unraveling 25-cent words used by others while never expecting the the reader to learn them. At the end of the book are a glossary, endnotes, and suggestions for additional reading to provide clear background to the book, and where to find more. If only it had an index.
Discipling Nations: The Power of Truth to Transform Cultures uses small words to provide plenty of historic truth. It might be the next best thing available to help Christians, churches, and schools understand why life is as it is, and how to explain it to others.
DISCIPLING NATIONS is an excellent analysis of worldview issues, connecting the glory of God with the development of nations. I found DISCIPLING NATIONS wonderful, delightful, incisive...using excellent graphics and charts, and rich quotes from many other sources.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for teachers, leaders, for Christians imvolved in world missions, for people who care about how to move people from glory to glory, out a culture of poverty, into a culture of development and wholeness. Yes, the glory of God is central to it all. Darrow Miller's DISCIPLING NATIONS shows why and how.
