OtherWise Christian 2 v. 3

RJ’s chapter in OtherWise Christian 2 touches on the significance of naming, but really emphasizes the process by which we grow into our new identities in Christ by following a story from the Gospel of Mark.

RJ’s chapter, “Discipleship,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (forthcoming spring 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing. Please sign up to get updates!
