The Wesleyan Church seeks to support and enable shepherds who have been called to make flocks of disciples, to shepherd them, and lead them into a deeper Christlikeness.

About the Book

Thad Barnum’s writing is not for the spiritually timid. His poignantly transparent story-telling joins arm-in-arm with readers, leading them deeper into authentic discipleship. Each of Real Mercy‘s fifty readings is crafted around Scripture from the life of Jesus, the model of mercy. Throughout, Barnum artfully weaves story, revealing just how God must build it into a disciple’s soul. For those tired of wading in superficial faith, this latest of Barnum’s Deeper Devotion series ranges far into the spiritually real depths of lives defined by God’s mercy.

THADDEUS BARNUM is senior pastor of Church of the Apostles in Fairfield, Connecticut, and serves with his wife Erilynne on the board for call2disciple. He is the author of Real Love, Real Identity and Real Courage.
