Short and straight to the point, James Dunn crystallises from Jesus' own ministry his goals and methods for discipleship. With a strong focus on the history and background of 1st century Judaism, he comes at the topic with a totally different perspective, delving into Jesus' own focus on good news for the poor, his launching of a new Israel and the Kingdom of God. Worth reading, but more importantly, worth applying.
