Discipleship occurs when someone answers the call to learn from Jesus how to live his or her lifeas though Jesus were living it. The end result is that the disciple becomes the kind of person who naturally does what Jesus did.
How the church understands salvation and the gospel is the key to recovering a biblical theology of discipleship. Our doctrines of grace and salvation, in some cases, actually prevent us from creating an expectation that we are to be disciples of Jesus. A person can profess to be a Christian and yet still live under the impression that they dont need to actually follow Jesus. Being a follower is seen as an optional add-on, not a requirement. It is a choice, not a demand. Being a Christian today has no connection with the biblical idea that we are formed into the image of Christ.
In this ground-breaking new book, pastor and author Bill Hull shows why our existing models of evangelism and discipleship fail to actually produce followers of Jesus. He looks at the importance of recovering a robust view of the gospel and taking seriously the connection between conversionanswering the call to follow Jesusand discipleshipliving like the one we claim to follow.
Bill Hull is a discipleship evangelist and the author of the bestselling discipleship classics, The Disciple-Making Pastor, and Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker.
