Summary

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”  
 
Right before ascending into heaven, Jesus stood on a mountain and delivered the Great Commission, instructing all His followers to make disciples of all nations. Promising He would always be with us, He drifted up into the clouds. Two thousand years later, our objective remains and we steadfastly—  
 
Wait, what? Make disciples of all nations? How do you do that?  
 
Jesus’ early followers knew precisely what to do. They knew because the Messiah had spent the three years prior turning them into disciples. They followed His example and “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6), and that example is left for us as well.  
 
In Go Make Disciples, bestselling author Brad Francis takes us through the five aspects of discipleship that Jesus regularly practiced: example, evaluation, education, equipping and experience. Discover how Jesus took a dozen ordinary, uneducated men and turned them into Christ followers who boldly reached their world with the Gospel. After seeing how Jesus made disciples, Brad also offers ideas about how we can adapt His methods for our modern world.  
 
Whether you’ve personally been involved in discipling hundreds, or whether you’ve never known how to even take the first step toward making disciples, Go Make Disciples provides a strong biblical foundation for following Jesus’ commands. If the Great Commission applies to you, so does this book!

    It was a leap of faith for Grace Fontaine to bid farewell to her beloved fiancé, Jess Travis, and send him on a four-month stint on the transatlantic luxury liner The Lone Star. But the trip from Boston to London and back again would increase his salary fivefold and would bring the couple that much closer to realizing their dream of marrying and starting a family. When Grace learns that the ship was captured by pirates, her hope deflates and it eviscerates entirely when the pirate ship is apprehended, with no survivors reported. Two years later, Grace receives word from a doctor in Paris, Tennessee, that her wealthy great-aunt, Iris Brockwell, is on her deathbed and requires round-the-clock care. Grace volunteers, figuring there is nothing left for her in Boston. It isn't long after her arrival in Paris that she meets a charming, driven lawyer named Conrad Hall, who wastes no time sweeping her off her feet and soon proposes marriage. Given his promises to love, protect, and care for her and her great-aunt, how can Grace refuse? Weeks before the wedding, an unexpected guest shows up and threatens to throw a wrench in the plans. Will Grace go through with her marriage to Conrad? Or will an unforeseen turn of events change her mind?

    In this hugely entertaining sequel to the New York Times bestselling memoir An Appetite for Wonder, Richard Dawkins delves deeply into his intellectual life spent kick-starting new conversations about science, culture, and religion and writing yet another of the most audacious and widely read books of the twentieth century—The God Delusion. 
    Called “one of the best nonfiction writers alive today” (Stephen Pinker) and a “prize-fighter” (Nature), Richard Dawkins cheerfully, mischievously, looks back on a lifetime of tireless intellectual adventure and engagement. Exploring the halls of intellectual inquiry and stardom he encountered after the publication of his seminal work, The Selfish Gene; affectionately lampooning the world of academia, publishing, and television; and studding the pages with funny stories about the great men and women he’s known, Dawkins offers a candid look at the events and ideas that encouraged him to shift his attention to the intersection of culture, religion, and science. He also invites the reader to look more closely at the brilliant succession of ten influential books that grew naturally out of his busy life, highlighting the ideas that connect them and excavating their origins. 
    On the publication of his tenth book, the smash hit, The God Delusion, a “resounding trumpet blast for truth” (Matt Ridley), Richard Dawkins was catapulted from mere intellectual stardom into a circle of celebrity thinkers dubbed, “The New Atheists”—including Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Daniel Dennett. 
    Throughout A Brief Candle in the Dark, Dawkins shares with us his infectious sense of wonder at the natural world, his enjoyment of the absurdities of human interaction, and his bracing awareness of life’s brevity: all of which have made a deep imprint on our culture.
