Morning Meditations site thumbnailJames Pyles over at Morning Meditations recently reviewed my book, The Four Responsibilities of a Disciple. His review is very positive and extremely thorough. He gives an overview of each of the responsibilities I cover in my book, along with his own personal thoughts. Throughout the review, he commends the work, seeing the need for a publication such as this. As a brief overview, he begins by saying,

Both the “look and feel” and quality of content are high and represent a professional job of writing and publishing. I’ll cut to the chase and say right now that I’d recommend this book for anyone who is really interested in what being a disciple of the Jewish Messiah is like as a lived experience.

He also comments, 

Darren makes a good point when he calls a disciple a “lifestudent,” but that only helps the reader realize how challenging being a true disciple of Christ is. Discipleship isn’t a six, twelve, or eighteen-week program you run a new member of your church through and at the end, they are a “full-fledged Christian.” Discipleship takes a lifetime of continual studying and mentoring.

As a wrap-up, he concludes,

Darren Huckey’s book will give you a starting point. It’s well written and well researched, and I think it’s a valuable resource for people who want to become and/or to raise up serious and correctly oriented disciples of our Master…

Many times in our exploration of Jewish sources there will be a text which will help better elucidate a passage within the Scriptures, particularly the words of our Master. I would like to show how one such text does so in relation to Yeshua's double-parable of the Torn Garment and the Wine Skins. For no particular reason, I am going to use the version found in Mark's Gospel account. Let's take a look at this parable together.

No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the patch tears away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins—and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins. (Mark 2:21-22)

Recently, I was interviewed for a second time by Gabriel Rutledge of The Grafted In Perspective. This interview covered my perspectives on Hanukkah for followers of Yeshua and my new devotional for Hanukkah, Eight Lights. Be sure to listen and give us some feedback!

The Koren Ani Tefilla Siddur is one of the latest in Koren’s growing collection of siddurim (prayer books) geared towards a specific demographic. Koren describes Ani Tefilla as “an engaging and thought-provoking siddur for the inquiring high school student and thoughtful adult.” Koren says that Ani Tefillah has been developed in order “to help the user create their own meaning and connection during the Tefilla [prayer] experience.” The name of the siddur is connected with its objective.
