Jesus asked all of his followers to go and make disciples, but many of us do not know how to do it.
In this book, Robby Gallaty point us in the right direction with specific steps. One of the first things we need to do is to understand Jesus and the time period in which he lived, and what his lessons mean to us. We then need to learn how to properly build our discipleship groups and how to make them work.
There are lot of helpful endnotes and appendix.
About the Author- Robby Gallaty is married with two boys. He is the founder of Replicate Ministries and the Senior Pastor of Brainerd Baptist Church. He wrote Growing Up: How to Be a Disciple who Makes Disciples and Firmly Planted.
I thought this book was excellent. It was filled with useful and practical information to help people learn what it means to be a disciple and how to do it.
My favorite part of this book was the section where it talk about how we need to know about Jesus’s methods, before we start it ourselves. I learned how important it is when reading the Bible to think about what life was like for the Jews at that time, so I can better relate to the stories being told. This would especially apply to the parables.
The appendix with the answers to frequently asked questions was high on my favorites too, because it discussed in greater detail what to do with your small group of disciples.
It is important to make and equip disciples, so they can go and do the same. We need disciples in the world to spread the word of God.
I recommend it to every adult.
