This book is not just another discipleship manual but rather, as the cover indicates, presents a unique focus that is easily applied to any good system of discipleship. Without contradicting any christian teaching, this book contains ingredients that may corroborate and enrich any good discipleship system. The author begins with the example provided in Acts 1:13, where we a group of determined disciples are found praying in the upper room. Their lives and examples serve to motivate and inspire others to commit themselves to join them in that upper place of prayer. The author paints a picture of a staircase that, although metaphorical, is very real and practical. He describes 25 steps that when put into practice progressively build on each other. Each step represents a virtue, quality or ability that is found in any good disciple. Lively anecdotes illustrating basic but foundational principles are interspersed throughout. However, as the reader advances through the steps of the narrative the tone changes and the narrative advances to higher, more complex concepts. These illustrations, culminating with the final chapter, 'The Photograph Album,' serve to challenge and inspire all disciples, even those who are already consider themselves mature and experienced.
