For Jesus discipleship was not measured only by a call from him and not even by a subsequent reorientation of people's live. The designation "disciple" was not intended to set people apart or to have them sit at the feet of Jesus like faithful companions. There is a much deeper purpose in his invitation through which one is called to be sent.
Called to Be Sent develops and completes the theology of discipleship introduced in the author's previous books. This new volume focuses on "sending forth," the phase that follows our radical encounter with human-ity. Here we find the hope and strength to move from an understanding of mission to actually being commis-sioned by Jesus. In short, as Christians we are "gathered for scattering" and "called to be sent," and this book provides much direction.
