Editorial Reviews

"Camarillo Community Church has used Greg Ogden's Discipleship Essentials as our primary discipleship tool for the past six years. The methodology advocated and the breadth of the curriculum in that book have dramatically transformed this church. I am excited to incorporate Essential Guide to Becoming a Disciple into our discipleship process. Greg Ogden has faithfully gathered from Scripture and beautifully presented Jesus' compelling call to be a disciple. He gives a deeply satisfying answer to the question, what does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus? Both novice and veteran believers will be challenged and changed through this book for the advancement of the kingdom."
"In a day when the church is struggling to make authentic followers of Jesus, this study is a much-needed resource. Clarifying what it means to be a disciple and how to live as a disciple is crucial for those both in the church and those seeking Jesus. In a proven format, Greg Ogden has provided a disciple-making resource that has great potential to refresh the vitality of discipleship for the sake of the church."
