Overall a good review of the role of the local church in discipleship. Too broad with certain strokes; one might be left wondering exactly how they can go out in confidence. This is a book more for those who understand discipleship and need to be reminded of the fundamentals ( )

I love books like this. It's full of content without being a doorstop.

This book provides excellent instruction for those seeking to live with gospel-centered intentionality under the sovereignty of God. Rather than being passive due to God being in control, we are encouraged here to be active in our pursuit of helping others mature in Christ. ( )

Can you define “Discipleship”? How would you define it for the one who is “being discipled”? What about for the one who is “discipling”?

Mark Dever simplifies what it means to “help others follow Jesus” using the Scriptures as the basis for why discipling is what Christians do (not just what “mature” Christians do). Along the way, there are plenty of helpful examples and illustrations.

Whether on your own or with others, anyone who wants to be encouraged and challenged to “help others follow Jesus” should read this brief book. ( )
