Good resource. Presents the idea of discipleship as a simple, somewhat organic process, growing out of relationships – stemming from Jesus’ example of how He interacted with His disciples. The author has been involved with developing a discipleship assessment tool, available online for a fee, and refers to this assessment throughout the book. The book I received includes a code for one free online assessment.

As described in the introduction, the book is broken up into four parts. The first part of the book digs into what characterizes a disciple of Christ. The second part involves what it looks like to be a disciple. The third part looks at how to grow in specific areas of discipleship. And the fourth part discusses implementing the process in church congregations.
The introduction also states, “We have identified eight qualities and twenty-one supporting characteristics of a disciple.”(page xv). After reading the book, I can appreciate that sentence in the introduction, since those qualities and characteristics are listed through the book as they are discussed. I would love to see a table of information or overview at the end of the book with these qualities and characteristics all in one place as a big picture review.
Overall I would certainly recommend this book.
