The Discipline of Surrender


The Discipline of Surrender: Biblical Images of Discipleship
[IVP 2001]

By exploring the rich images used through the bible, this book illuminates the heart and soul of life in Christ.  The down-to-earth images of altar and lamb, thorn and trumpet, farmer’s yoke and shepherds staff powerfully convey to us the pattern of life poured out on us from God.  Mundane objects such as towel and basin, manna and donkey humbly serve as God’s object lessons to capture our prayerful imaginations and propel us toward lives of courage, humility, and flat-out dependence on God.
