Discipling in a Multicultural World – Adith Fernando

by | Apr 4, 2019 | Christian Living, Featured

Discipling in a Multicultural World by Adith Fernando compressive work that describes the essence of the discipling process. Fernando brings a wealth of experience as a longtime director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka. His expansive knowledge and lengthy tenure provide a breadth and depth of wisdom that is missing in many discipling resources.

Spiritual Parenthood

Mr. Fernando introduces a subject that is foreign in most discipleship literature, namely, spiritual parenthood. This missing perspective is explored from several different angles and reveals how disciples serve as spiritual parents to their disciples.

The Process of Change

The second half of the book explores how disciples change. The practical section is a primer on sanctification. Fernando addresses real concerns and offers godly wisdom for disciples in an international context.

Discipling in a Multicultural World is a worthy read and helpful addition to a growing list of discipling resources. The real strength lies in its appeal to multicultural contexts.

Finally, a helpful series of appendices is included. Most helpful is a checklist of topics for discussion.
