“Narrative, Identity, and Discipleship” by Jens Barnett (2009)

Barnett, Jens. (2009), “Narrative, Identity and Discipleship”, in Musafir: A Bulletin of Intercultural Studies, 3:2, Dec 2009, pp3-5. DOWNLOAD

Narrative, Identity, and Discipleship is a brief article which examines our epistemological assumptions of discipleship among MBBs with special reference to socio-religious identity.

I appreciate Barnett’s willingness to grapple with the complexity of conversion and identity for MBBs while avoiding simplistic models and conclusions.

Thank you for posting more from Jens Barnett. Barnett's thinking and fresh perspectives are so helpful.

I love where the PDF says, "... a seeker; divine revelation; an
impossible task; the promise of “with-ness,” faithful obedience; a crisis of faith; miraculous
intervention; expanded faith; joyful worship; leadership and multiplication; and a hunger for more.

What a description of how God moves. This is what I look for in my own work.
