The Politics of Discipleship Reviews

'Graham Ward's The Politics of Discipleship is an extraordinary book. Ward does nothing less than help us see how worldA" and churchA" implicate each other by providing an insightful and learned account of the transformation of democracy, the perversities of globalization, and the ambiguities of secularization. Perhaps even more significant is his theological proposal for the difference the church can make in the world so described.' Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke University
