Christian Outdoor Leadership: Theology Theory & Practice by Ashley Denton

paperback-book-copyPeople today are yearning to be freed from the chaotic pace of modern life. Busyness has only deepened our starvation for experiences that cause true transformation. As Jesus looked into the culture of His day He settled on a surprising strategy to change the world: He chose a group of young Disciples, He used the wilderness as His primary classroom, and He employed adventure to produce radical commitment toward His mission. He knew that people needed time in the outdoors for soul rest and mind renewal.

God has always used wilderness experiences to draw out the best in people by confronting their fears and exposing traps of entitlement. Jesus used the outdoors with His Disciples to sever worldly entanglements that choked their faith.

In an increasingly urban world people need opportunities to encounter Jesus through time in his creation. Ashley Denton’s, Christian Outdoor Leadership, will help you re-discover an ancient discipleship method that produced leaders such as Moses, David, Peter, and Paul: Each of them were profoundly called and shaped by God in the outdoors.
