I admire the courage and character of the author to address a most relevant, practical, and necessary issue, that of discipleship. The wisdom of bringing to the discussion the correlation between the concept of membership versus the concept of discipleship is splendid. In other words, the injunction given by Christ was not to make members but to make disciples, because disciples do not become stagnant or plateau, but grow. Therefore, to do otherwise would be to lose the integrity of our mission and the calling of Christ.
The beauty of the book, however, is to be found in its practicality. It answers the questions “Why be a disciple?”, “How to be a disciple?” and “What does a disciple do?” In the “why”, “how”, and “what” lie the answers to the fulfillment of being chosen to be a disciple. It helps the reader understand and explore the necessity of being a disciple of Christ, especially in the 21st century. I strongly recommend this book to all pastors, leaders, officers and members. It is not a replication of the other books on discipleship, but a fresh look at a pertinent subject with clarity and honesty. Most of all, the conclusions drawn and the implications given are based on Biblical principles.
