The Way of Disciples
Eamonn Bredin
290 Pages
ISBN: 9780948183003


Eamonn Bredin invites all who wish to be disciples of Christ to look again at the Jesus of the New Testament and at the struggles of those first disciples who saw Jesus die as a criminal on the cross, and then to embark on a journey of re-assessing their own lives and discipleship on Jesus’ terms. The signposts for that journey include the language that Jesus used, his new images of God and of God’s kingdom, the selfless lifestyle of commitment to the poor and the sinners, his acts and attitudes which scandalised his contemporaries and co-religionists, and, finally, his death and resurrection.Bredin gives the modern reader little chance to hang on to a Christianity that is comfortable in the face of the suffering and pain that still cries out for the redemptive presence of Jesus. All Christians are called to be that very presence, through a truly committed discipleship in the contemporary world.One of the greatest needs of our time is adult education in theology. The treasury of the mysteries of our faith needs to be opened to our people. Fr Bredin’s book is a major contribution. — Austin Flannery OPDisturbing the Peace is a wonderful book for catechists and religious educators. It gives us a scholarly, pastoral and powerful presentation of the core of what we are to teach – the discipleship of Jesus. It is also written with a distinctly Irish flavour. — Thomas Groome
