The disciple learns not only the Scriptural values of every aspect of the narrow way, but is also trained to strengthen them using the sixteen disciplines the early church practiced to allow the salvation experience to be enhanced - spirit, soul and body. The goal, of course, for every disciple is to serve God; but in the normal church experience that follows the American culture; it is usually a "fast track" that results in an uninformed and ill-prepared "leader" that ninety-five time out of one hundred - fails; usually causing the ill-trained member to leave the church and often his Lord. The book discusses the aspects and processes from which come true leaders-servants that are ready for Kingdom living.
