A humorous and engaging account of highly acclaimed author David Wells’ journey to faith.
David Wells, a teacher and a father of three kids from the UK, shares with us his own path to discipleship in The Reluctant Disciple. He is a fantastic storyteller: wry, funny, self-deprecating and down to earth. From watching a dragonfly land on the back of his son’s hand to heading off after work for five-a-side football and a pint at the local bar, every moment in his work has something to offer.
Each chapter includes commentary and questions for reflection, making The Reluctant Disciple ideal for study groups and people on retreat. But it’s just as easy to pick up the book off the shelf and enjoy it straight through.
lives in Devon, UK, with his wife and three children. He spends his working hours at Buckfast Abbey, leading a team of volunteers in adult faith formation.
