'The Walk' and the story Jonah Kule

I sat in bed this morning and read 'The Walk: Steps for New and Renewed Followers of Jesus' in one sitting. It's a book that offers a new follower of Jesus a basic framework on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. It is quite influenced by the work of John C Miller and is a very easy but weighty work that you could helpfully use in one on one discipleship. 

Essentially, it unpacks methodically prayer, reading the Bible, the life of Jesus and Romans in a very practical and helpful way and applies it into the life of a new follower. It manages to introduce a new believer to the 'the deep truths of the faith' in a way that you can then chat through and explore over a coffee with someone over a few weeks or a couple of months. I plan to read this and drink coffee with someone in the autumn.

The story above was both moving and timely as you will read.
