I am a firm believer that discipleship is a key ingredient in a believers life. It affirms a strong relationship with what Christianity is all about and prepares one for effective evangelism and function in their respective gifts. DFD is a perfect way to start, as it allows for groups and individuals to examine God's Word and grow in the truth.
I have used the original Design for Discipleship Series for years with new Christians, and I didn't think it could be improved on. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the revised version is even better!! I will use it again and again........ They are well worth the money. DFD #1 is a great way to introduce a new Christian to God, Jesus and the Workings of the Holy Spirit.
I have used the Design for Discipleship as early as the late 70's for mentoring new believers. I recently was asked to mentor a friend that wishes to teach, so we have started with this book, and have completed 3 of the 7, and have noted that there is more application in this revised set, which makes the teaching take hold in your life and in the life of the believer that is being mentored. For new believers, or people that have been in the faith a long time, I highly recommend that you go through this course. I look forward to Tuesday's when we meet, as it is a thrill to go through this courseware.
