We are delighted to announce that Alison’s long-awaited book Following Jesus – The Plural of Disciple is Church arrived in our office this week! Mentioned by Archbishop Justin Welby in his recent address to General Synod, it carries a raft of commendations which you can browse here.
Defining discipleship as ‘a form of apprenticeship undertaken in community’, and drawing on her experience of working with people in the UK and across Africa, Alison offers a compelling mix of personal experience, real life stories and theological reflection. “If you are looking for something to excite people about Christian discipleship, “writes Bishop James Newcome in his Foreword, “this is it.”
Alison Morgan is a star! A wise and prophetic book which challenges us to consider the question ‘How do I make my faith in Christ real today?’ The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu
Alison beautifully balances the passionate individual following of Jesus in order to become more like him, with the well-argued emphasis and practical application that the plural of disciple is Church. It should become standard reading, thinking and living. George Lings, Church Army Research Unit
Alison Morgan writes with a rare blend of wisdom and inspiration. This beautiful book is peppered with story, challenge and hope. I cannot recommend Alison’s work highly enough. Mark Russell, Chief Executive, Church Army
