Darrow Miller and Friends

Discipling Nations New Edition Available Today!

Twenty years ago when Darrow Miller first published Discipling Nations: The Power of Truth to Transform Cultures, he wrote in the introduction, “The message in this book is a work in progress. It has been growing and maturing for a decade now.” He could not know the impact the book would have, nor could he predict that twenty years later, its continued service to the global task of Jesus Christ would demand a new edition. But that’s exactly what has happened, and that new edition is now ready.

Darrow and his team spent two years drilling into the 2001 edition and made exhaustive improvements, updated statistics, added new stories, and incorporated current insights into the world of development and global outreach. Countless readers, well known, little known and unknown, have expressed their appreciation for Darrow’s work. Today, at the announcement of the book’s release, we are including just six.

I’ve just come from the DNA Africa Regional Conference near Nairobi. I was spellbound as I heard incredible stories of what God is doing in Africa in response to the biblical teachings of Disciple Nations Alliance over the last 20 years. God is fulfilling his promise to “heal the land” as his people in Africa are loving their neighbors in ways they have learned in these teachings. The book most referenced as a springboard for this visible transformation was Discipling Nations. I continue to thank the Lord for this powerful book and look forward to its continued use in this third edition.

Discipling Nations is one of the most important worldview books I’ve ever read. It’s a clear, articulate, and theologically sound application of the Christian worldview to all of life, especially the impact the Gospel can have on communities and nations.

Darrow Miller is one of the most influential people in my life. And one of the primary ways he has impacted me is through this classic book. In fact, the older I get, the more I can see the wisdom Darrow has packed into every page. I urge you to take up and read.

Reading this book twenty years ago was an inflection point in my life and career. I finally understood why the presence of the Church in  Africa for over one hundred years had little visible impact on her poverty and social fragmentation. I came to understand that the Great Commission was making disciples of the nations and not in the nations. This book has addressed a missing theological link in the African Church. Hundreds of churches have embraced a biblical worldview that challenges some negative aspects of our traditional African mindset and the secular humanism introduced by the West, systems that have held the Gospel captive to our cultures. Today thousands of lives are living witnesses of visible social transformation in hundreds of communities in over 40 countries in Africa and beyond.

Miller takes his readers step by step on a journey of ‘aha’ experiences as he unpacks how different worldviews produce development-friendly, or development-hostile, soil. He does this with obvious love for scripture and for the poor. This is must reading for every Christian working at home or abroad in impoverished communities.

Dr. Wayne Grudem, Ph.D. Research Professor, Phoenix Seminary.

I am happy to recommend Discipling Nations because it gives an extensive, insightful, and biblically-based explanation of the ways in which a Christian worldview is able to transform the non-Christian worldviews that are so harmful to people in various cultures around the world. It shows how the Christian Gospel is truly good news for all areas of life for all people.

    Discipling Nations was the first book I read on worldview and I used it as the foundation for my years of community development work in Yunnan, China.
