The World of the Word
by Dan Fennell
Discipleship from Moab to Macedonia
In an age of increasing biblical illiteracy, Dan Fennell invites readers on a journey through the lands of the Bible to rediscover the historical reality of the biblical narrative and to a renewed commitment to whole-of-life Christian discipleship.
In this reflective exploration of what it means to believe, readers travel through the world of God’s word – in the Ancient Near East and across the Mediterranean – from Moab to Macedonia. We find ourselves struggling with Israel through the wilderness to Canaan, walking with Jesus and his disciples from Capernaum to Jerusalem, and then partnering with the Apostle Paul on his missionary journeys.
In this wonderful book, devout pilgrims and curious seekers alike are helped to reconnect Christian faith to its historical foundations as the reality of the biblical story unfolds before their eyes. Throughout this discipleship adventure, you will be inspired to walk into the future, having discovered the challenge, fellowship and joy of following Jesus.
