Fully updated and revised third edition!

Have Christians underestimated the power of God’s truth to transform entire societies?

In Discipling Nations, Darrow Miller builds a powerful and convincing thesis that God’s truth not only breaks the spiritual bonds of sin and death but can free whole societies from deception and poverty. Completely revised and updated for the third edition, Discipling Nations will challenge, reenergize, and equip Christians everywhere who labor to see “His kingdom come, His will be done.”

Darrow Miller’s Discipling Nations played a significant role in educating Christians on the crucial importance of a biblical worldview in sparking economic and cultural development, and this revised edition deserves to reach an even wider readership. Ideas are at the root of any successful effort to alleviate poverty because ideas affect behavior—including economic behavior. Having worked in nations around the globe, Darrow is a reliable guide to the major worldviews and their real-world impact.
Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth

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.
John Stonestreet, president of the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview

Francis Schaeffer wrote about worldviews, development specialists write about fighting hunger, and often the twain never meet. Discipling Nations is the best book I have seen at uniting worldview analysis with sound perspectives on development.
Marvin Olasky, editor-in-chief of WORLD magazine

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.
Brian Fikkert, coauther of When Helping Hurts

Darrow L. Miller is co-founder of the Disciple Nations Alliance, the author of numerous books, and a popular conference speaker on topics such as Christianity and culture, apologetics, worldview, poverty, and the dignity of women.

Jesus commanded his followers to "make disciples of all the nations." This includes sharing the Good News of peace with God through Christ with individuals; it also includes planting churches... but discipling a nation is SO MUCH MORE. This concept of "discipling the nations" will take us beyond evangelizing our neighbors and reaching 'unreached people groups' to "obeying all that [Christ] has commanded." God is not satisfied with part of our lives. Mr. Miller's call to live CORAM DEO - live all of our lives before the face of God - both challenges me and fills me with hope. I didn't realize how much my worldview has come from my culture. His case for a Biblical worldview is compelling, especially when compared to the evidence and the competition. More radical than liberalism and with a richer history than conservatism, I expect Mr. Miller's ideas to provoke a strong response from both social action Christians and Church planting missionaries. I realize Mr. Miller's work with Food for the Hungry targets the poorest of the poor - but this concept of "discipling nations" has radical implications for every congregation and mission agency in the world. He leads us to recover the depth and breadth of the Church's Mission. I hope his book stirs the Missions community as much as 'people groups' did at Lauzanne in the early 70's. DISCIPLING NATIONS certainly has the potential.
