Publisher's Description

Being a disciple of Jesus is an issue of devotion rather than duty. Before Peter began the most important act of his life—discipleship—Jesus didn’t ask him, “How many chapters of the Torah did you read today?” or “Are you attending services at the synagogue each week?” or “Did you give your tithe today?” No, before Peter began his journey of discipleship, Jesus asked him, “Do you love Me?” Arron Chambers thinks that we are asking new disciples of Christ the wrong questions and that it’s time to start truly following the example of Christ by asking of disciples what Christ asked of Peter: devotion, not duty. In Devoted, Arron presents a new paradigm for discipleship: falling in love with Jesus. This approach to discipleship emphasizes passion for Jesus as opposed to a plan for following Jesus.

    Arron Chambers latest book, Devoted, challenges readers to stop thinking about being disciples of Jesus who follow rules and regulations, but to think of themselves as devotees who are fanatically in love with Jesus, presenting some radical thoughts concerning discipleship for many of todays churches.

    Chambers says, True discipleship is not about what you do; its about whom you love. Instead of focusing on getting new believers in Jesus to go through the motions of church attendance, service, prayer, Bible study, and more, Chambers says we must focus on helping new believers to fall more in love with Jesusto be devoted to Jesus. Those other things will happen as a natural by-product of loving Jesus more, he seems to say.

    Devoted certainly challenges readers in their thinking and motivation, and if nothing else, to fall more in love with Jesus. Chambers tries to accomplish that goal by encouraging readers to approach the book differently than normal. In the back of the book, he presents a 40 Day Devoted Experience, to help readers fall more in love with Jesus, exploring the topics in the rest of the book in a guided fashion.

    Another plus is that Chambers provides a list of questions for small group Bible study to accompany the book, available for free at www.devotedbook.com.

    While I agree that discipleship is a matter of the heart, I think Chambers simplifies the process a bit much and Im still chewing on some of the things he presented in the book. And I guess thats a good thing. All in all, though, this book is worth the read. It challenges you evaluate your relationship with Jesus and encourages you to fall in love with Him more deeply.

    * Note: I received a copy of the book from NetGalley for this review; however, the opinions expressed in the review are my own.
