Endorsement by Dr Eryl Cooke, Bible School teacher at Living Way Academy, Tonypandy. www.livingwayacademy.co.uk:
Discipleship is a very challenging subject and to truly do it justice takes hard work and attention to detail. The author has managed to combine that detail with a very readable and lively style.
His approach is practical and direct, but at the same time, he has not ignored the theology which is the essential foundation for a Biblical discussion of discipleship. Doctrine underpins Christian growth and without it the disciple has no benchmark to base his or her life upon.
The topics are challenging, and he has used the scriptures to explain his points and of course, to legitimise them. However, the book is not so littered with them as to prevent a flow which would have made the book very dry.
Obviously, there are many obstacles that are faced by those wishing to live a life that reflects the character of Christ and these difficulties are not glossed over in any way.
The sheer scope of the book is incredible in its range of topics and is, therefore, broad. When this is the case very often writers go into very little depth; this cannot be said of this author’s approach.
I can therefore recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in Christ as an individual, but it would also make a great starting point for group study and nurture groups.
