The author explores the current need for discipling within today’s church. He shares research by George Barna, as well as personal experience, to analyze the lack of maturity in the life of the individual Christian. He states: ?The irony is that in our attempt to reach the masses through mass means we have failed to train people the masses could emulate.? Then he identifies Christ’s method and shows how Scripture provides a model for our ministry.
This book is packed with practical help for developing a discipling strategy in a local congregation. The author’s experience provides a rich knowledge base to enhance today’s church. He makes discipling doable for the average church.
