Summary : You are the right person for this job! It’s one of those words that seems to hold so much meaning but somehow resides just out of our reach: disciple. How do I become one? And how do I become a disciple-maker? There’s no secret formula, nor is there a one-size-fits-all plan for disciple-making, but there are examples to follow. And there are certainly adventures to be had! Disciple-making at its core is learning—and demonstrating—how to relate lovingly to God and to others. These pages are at once practical and packed with stories; they are big-picture-minded and strategy-filled. Read on to see how a disciple-making lifestyle will affect your view of: belonging hospitality relationship-building asking the right questions community and how to best love others In fact, discipleship is already in the heart of every Christian. Don’t let your fear, your insecurities, or your busyness get in the way. If you know how to be a friend, you already know most of what you need to be a disciple-maker. Take one step of obedience.

Summary : In contrast to many studies of New Testament ethics, which treat the New Testament in general and Paul in particular, this book focuses on the person of Jesus himself. Richard Burridge maintains that imitating Jesus means following both his words -- which are very demanding ethical teachings -- and his deeds and example of being inclusive and accepting of everyone. Burridge carefully and systematically traces that combination of rigorous ethical instruction and inclusive community through the letters of Paul and the four Gospels, treating specific ethical issues pertaining to each part of Scripture. The book culminates with a chapter on apartheid as an ethical challenge to reading the New Testament; using South Africa as a contemporary case study enables Burridge to highlight and further apply his previous discussion and conclusions.

Summary : Moss begins by tracing the theme of imitating Jesus through suffering in the literature of the Jesus movement and early church and its application in martyrdom literature. She demonstrates the importance of imitating the sufferings of Christ as a practice and ethos in the Jesus movement. She then proceeds to the interpretations of the martyr's death and afterlife, arguing against the dominant theory that the martyr's death was viewed as a sacrifice, and finding that in their post-mortem existence martyrs continue to be assimilated to Christ, closely resembling the exalted Christ as intercessors, judges, enthroned monarchs and banqueters.

Summary : "Morgan has impersonated the 43rd president onstage before thousands and on television before millions. Discovered at a Bush for president rally in 2004, he suddenly went from selling appliances to becoming one of the top impersonators in the industry.Still, all of this pales in comparison to his love of imitating Jesus Christ. These laugh-out-loud anecdotes illustrate how much fun portraying "Dubya" can be, but they also reveal that underneath John Morgan's presidential exterior lies a man who strives to imitate Jesus Christ."--inside flap.

Summary : Imitating Christ in Magwi: An Anthropological Theology achieves two things. First, focusing on indigenous Roman Catholics in northern Uganda and South Sudan, it is a detailed ethnography of how a community sustains hope in the midst of one of the most brutal wars in recent memory, that between the Ugandan government and the rebel Lord's Resistance Army. Whitmore finds that the belief that the spirit of Jesus Christ can enter into a person through such devotions as the Adoration of the Eucharist gave people the wherewithal to carry out striking works of mercy during the conflict, and, like Jesus of Nazareth, to risk their lives in the process. Traditional devotion leveraged radical witness. Second, Gospel Mimesis is a call for theology itself to be a practice of imitating Christ. Such practice requires both living among people on the far margins of society – Whitmore carried out his fieldwork in Internally Displaced Persons camps – and articulating a theology that foregrounds the daily, if extraordinary, lives of people. Here, ethnography is not an add-on to theological concepts; rather, ethnography is a way of doing theology, and includes what anthropologists call “thick description” of lives of faith. Unlike theology that draws only upon abstract concepts, what Whitmore calls “anthropological theology” is consonant with the fact that God did indeed become human. It may well involve risk to one's own life – Whitmore had to leave Uganda for three years after writing an article critical of the President – but that is what imitatio Christi sometimes requires.

Summary : This dissertation investigates a common motif in theological ethics, the imitation of Christ. It argues that the theological ethics of both Herman Bavinck and John Howard Yoder, in dialogue, can helpfully illuminate ethical discourse on imitating Christ in North American evangelical ethics. Together the understandings of the imitation of Christ seen in Bavinck and Yoder, as representatives of the Reformed and Anabaptist traditions, challenge and refine one another, can build bridges between ethical traditions that are often seem opposing, and aid in articulating a biblically faithful, contextually sensitive, Reformed, evangelical imitation ethic. The imitation of Christ is a motif that has been employed relatively consistently, in Christian spirituality and ethics, throughout Christian history, including as an important ethical motif in North American ethics, but it is a motif often fraught with hermeneutical questions: how does one know what it means to faithfully imitate Christ? This study begins with a historical survey of the imitation tradition throughout Christian spirituality: the writings of the New Testament, early Christian martyrdom, the ascetic movement, the mendicant orders, Thomas à Kempis, and the Reformation. These periods and persons serve to illustrate the richness of the imitation tradition and provide an introduction to the thinkers that Bavinck and Yoder draw upon in their own reflections on the imitation of Christ. This study then explores how both Bavinck and Yoder articulate the proper imitation of Christ in the life of a follower of Jesus. The two are an unlikely pair, but given the recent scholarly attention to Anabaptist-Reformed dialogue, particularly dialogue between neo-Calvinists and John Howard Yoder, there is ample groundwork laid for a constructive dialogue between the two on the imitation of Christ. Upon identifying the understandings of both Bavinck and Yoder on the imitation of Christ, this study places the two in constructive dialogue, arguing that despite their differences, Bavinck and Yoder's imitation ethics ought to be understood through the lens of "intra-family" dialogue and debate. The two share important affirmations regarding the imitation of Christ. A comparative look at the imitation ethics of both Bavinck and Yoder reveals that even amidst sustained difference between the two, shared theological affirmations emerge. Thus, the two theologians can constructively speak to, and critique, one another. This study then seeks to apply the insights gained from a constructive dialogue between Bavinck and Yoder to contemporary, evangelical ethical debates in the North American context.
