Discipleship is costly. Are we willing to critique and even challenge much we've been taught for the sake of the kingdom? For this is the radical nature of the discipleship to which Jesus calls us. He did not allow the outside culture to hold him captive; instead, he established the kingdom of God and turned the world on its head. Jesus was untamed, and he calls his church to be the same.
In this provocative and compelling book, internationally known missiologists Alan and Debra Hirsch overthrow culturized understandings of theology and culture, and cast a vision for a distinctly mission-shaped way of living the Christian life.
Written for any Christian serious about the issue of discipleship, Untamed covers such topics as church, humans as bearers of the image of God, family life, culture, and sexuality. Through it all, they seek to answer the question, "How are we to think and live day to day as followers of Jesus?" Each chapter ends with suggested practices to help readers begin to live out the book's principles, as well as questions for group discussion.

Thick and rich in authenticity! This book challenges our present day understanding of this man Jesus.
I would absolutely recommend this book. I would recommend the audiobook to those who want to read but have too much travel time in their lives.
The most memorable moments were the discussions on God and orgasms.
The narration was a bit deliberately 'deep and thoughtful' and occasionally dragged down the heart of the book into a monotonous plod. Someone who walked in while I was listening commented that it sounded like a brainwashing session.
I did not listen to this in one sitting, as the book is over 8 hours long, but I turned it on during commute times, and laundry-folding and distribution times.
The narrator consistently and distressingly mispronounced 'nuclear'.
