In Growing True Disciples, renowned researcher George Barna helps Christian leaders assess how their churches are doing in their commission to make disciples, and reveals models and examples that will encourage and equip churches to dramatically increase their effectiveness. Pastors, pastoral staff, lay leaders, seminary professors, missionaries, and parachurch leaders will all benefit from Barna's expert assessment of what churches are doing, what's working and what's not, and how we can all do better. As a result, churches will begin to see more involved members who want to live out their faith in submission to God and joyfully share their resources with others to fulfill Christ's commission.

Lost Art of Disciple MakingLost Art of Disciple Making

"Every believer in Jesus Christ deserves the opportunity of personal nurture and development," says LeRoy Eims.

But all too often the opportunity isn't there. We neglect the young Christian in our whirl of programs, church services and fellowship groups. And we neglect to raise up workers and leaders who can disciple young believers into mature and fruitful Christians.

In simple, practical, and biblical terms, LeRoy Eims revives the lost art of disciple making. He explains:

  • How the early church discipled new Christians
  • How to meet the basic needs of a growing Christian
  • How to spot and train potential workers
  • How to develop mature, godly leaders

"True growth takes time and tears and love and patience," Eims states. There is no instant maturity. This book examines the growth process in the life of a Christian and considers what nurture and guidance it takes to develop spiritually qualified workers in the church.

 Theological Perspectives on Discipleship

The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus' Essential Teachings on DiscipleshipThe Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus' Essential Teachings on Discipleship

The last command Jesus gave before he ascended to heaven was the Great Commission, the call to "make disciples of all the nations." But Christians have responded by making "Christians," not "disciples." This, according to renowned Christian thinker Dallas Willard, has been the church's Great Omission. Drawing upon previously published articles from magazines such as Christianity Today and Leadership Journal as well as remarks given at various conferences, Willard challenges the thought that we can be Christians without being disciples. He calls on believers to restore what should be the heart of Christianity - being active disciples of Jesus Christ. Willard shows us that in the school of life, we are apprentices of the Teacher whose brilliance encourages us to rise above traditional church understanding and embrace the true meaning of discipleship - an active, concrete, 24/7 life with Jesus.
