    I would recommend this book for people to use in discipling others, especially for someone who has never discipled or mentored another individual.

    The book starts at the beginning and lays a solid foundation for equipping believers or introducing unbelievers to Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and the Gospel. The book is easy to use and guides you through the material. Just have your Bible with you and you are ready to go.

    This review was written for Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples - eBook.
    I wish I would have saved some pain and just read this book the day I first was convicted of sin, repented and put my faith in Christ 7 years ago. This book should be handed out at the entrance of every church building.

    the "crowd" will always be larger than the "core."

    Francis Chan is a best-selling author and the founding pastor of Cornerstone Church, and the founder of Eternity Bible College. He also sits on the board of directors of the Children's Hunger Fund and World Impact. Currently, Francis is working to start a church planting movement in the inner city of San Francisco and also working to launch a countrywide discipleship movement.

    Hence this book. Multiply: Making Disciples is one of those books that you can judge by it's cover. Yes, it's about growing as a church, yes, it's about discipleship - and since it's co-authored by Francis Chan, you can expect that there is a lot of good stuff in there.

    In the book, Chan argues for the true purpose of the church: "making disciples."

    "Jesus' command to make disciples in the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) was not intended solely for the early disciples, nor is disciple-making the responsibility of a special class of Christians. Rather, all followers of Christ are called to make disciples, to fish for men (Matthew 4:19). Many don't actively make disciples because they don't know what it means to be a disciple."

    My wife and I listened to Chan on his Simi Valley podcast and towards the end of his time there, we both agreed that Chan was growing frustrated at the seemingly inactive lifestyle of the global church. I would guess it gets hard week after week to call people to action, to call people to obedience, only to see them return Sunday after Sunday no different than the week before.

    "We don't understand how serious it is when Jesus Christ gives us a command. We just don't get it."

    In reading Multiply, you can still hear that frustration in Chan's voice.

    But it's a maturity issue, it really is. And I would say that I think Chan is a little too hard on the global church. Discipleship is happening, and Christian growth is happening in the world - it really is, but we all move at our own pace.

    Is there a large potion of the church who are content to just "attend" church and squeeze Jesus into their already packed life? Absolutely. But the "crowd" will always be larger than the "core."

    There were other critics of this book who wanted more from it, and I admit as a stand alone book - it'd would have been nice to have some deeper application. (Chan does have a great chapter on studying the bible) But that's the great thing about this book, each of the 24 chapters in Multiply corresponds with an online video, where author David Platt helps expound the book even further.

    This is still a very good book and I liked it better than his last two. The message is indeed needed in the church and I hope its a message that creates a following like Crazy Love did.

    For me personally, Crazy Love is still his best book and probably the reason is because he wrote it. Forgotten God is co-written by Danae Yankoski. Erasing Hell is co-written by Preston Sprinkle. And as a reader and a Francis Chan fan, I would rather he got back into writing. I have no way to be sure, but I'd guess that the reasons why his last few books don't have the same fire as Crazy Love is because they are not 100% one voice.

    Thank you to David C. Cook publishers for a review copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Good book if used for a group study in discipleship; otherwise, not as captivating as Chan's previous books. Would be well used in discipleship training venue.
