Mr. Eims makes an excellent case for why every believer's goal should be to become a mature disciple and to disciple other believers, esp. those who are young in the faith. I found his explanation of the process of disciple-making to be both practical and do-able. The explanations of how to disciple (as well as the practical Appendix "Training Objectives for a Disciple") were really helpful. This would be even better if there were an online site that could link articles & tools to each objective. I used the training objectives also as a prayer guide--to pray these skills into student/disciples' lives. This a great tool to teach 21st century believers that there is more to being a Christian than just surviving until heaven.
Programs turn me off. This book turns me on to discipleship training.The greatest problem in church today is lack of discipleship inexample and caring for the new Christian. This book gives practical guidance on how YOU must train up, fellowship with, encourage and love. All by example with Christ our great example. It is not just a pastors job but requires all believers to be participants.
Very thorough overview of the need, Biblical imperatives and the "how-to's" of disciple-making. Also features a plan to cover certain topics and issues with which to take your disciple through. This book should adorn your libraries as well as your lives. Give everyone you are investing in a copy of this!
