—From the foreword by Rick Warren, founder and senior pastor, Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA
Depending on who you read, Jesus has been represented (and reduced) to a social activist, a tortured reformer, or a cavalier teacher. Against the background, Untamed is refreshing, grounded, thoughtful . . . tantalizing.
—Reggie McNeal, missional leadership specialist, Leadership Network
The demand for an intelligible path toward discipleship is one of the greatest needs of the post-Christendom church. In Untamed, Alan and Debra deliver beautifully.
—Gabe Lyons, co-founder, Catalyst
In this bold, compelling, and inspiring work, Alan and Debra Hirsch . . . share with readers a captivating vision of the true Messiah. All who are unsatisfied with the boring safety of their tame Christianity need to read this book!
