Chuck Swindoll is a wonderful Christian author and anyone reading his books will be treated to not only foundational Christian instruction, but will be shown the works of other great sources. I was introduced to Tozer, Jim Elliot and Brother Lawrence by Dr. Swindoll. This book is a very useful guide for Disciplers, especially if working with young believers. I am currently using this book for that purpose and it is opening new areas of growth and maturity for them, as it did for me. Highly recommended.
