5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every Christian 2 July 2002
By LMS - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a very quick and easy read. But don't let that fool you. This book packs quite a punch. It talks about how Jesus defined discipleship and what Biblical discipleship looks like.
This book is also practical. The author uses real-life examples from his own life and the lives of others. It is obvious the author has a very clear understanding of the topic of discipleship and wants the reader to have an equally clear understanding. He talks about what the Bible has to say about discipleship, the lack of true discipleship in the church today, what true discipleship looks like, the cost of discipleship (in my opinion, this is the most challenging,chapter of all) and the rewards of discipleship. The author also discusses unpopular subjects such as repentance, humility, obedience and dying to self as key components of discipleship. The author also takes a very strong stand against the notion of "easy believism" which is so prevalent and popular in American Christianity today.
This book should be required reading for every Christian. Especially new Christians. But veteran believers will also benefit greatly from this book. This book will break you out of complacent Christianity and will get you outside your comfort zone. In my opinion, this is one of the best books on discipleship out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars is just not enough! 31 Aug 2005
By Lincoln in St. Louis - Published on Amazon.com
This book has challenged me more than any other (save Scripture) to examine the quality of my relationship with Jesus Christ. Is He really the King of my life? Do I love Him enough that I am willing to deny myself, pick up my cross daily and follow Him? I cannot think of a topic (genuine discipleship) that is more missing from the modern church. How much better would our world be if Christ's Church, including me, would faithfully carry out these directives? If you are interested in having only a half-hearted relationship with Christ, do NOT read this book. Otherwise, prepare yourself to be challenged and blessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take up your cross 21 Jun 2006
By Brad Williams - Published on Amazon.com
I have not read a better, clearer book on what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Boice writes with clarity and focus that constantly draw the reader back to the feet of Jesus. This is a book that you should pull down again and again to read to be refreshed and reminded of what it means to follow Christ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boice's best 31 Oct 2002
By sherebiah - Published on Amazon.com
What are the costs of following and obeying Christ in this post-Christian era? The late Dr. Boice unflinchingly outlines what happens to the true Christian as they face today's challenges and temptations to compromise. Not for the social "Christian", this book will warn as well as encourage. Must reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars great devotional material, one which challenged me enter the full-time ministry! 21 May 2006
By Kang - Published on Amazon.com
As Christians, at the point of our conversion, are called not only to Sonship with God, but also to a life of discipleship and close communion with Him. In this book, the author brings us through 14 familiar passages of the Bible that relates to many aspects of our Christian lives, of the meaning, path, costs and finally reward of discipleship. The points raised by the author are highly relevant to the life of a Christian in our current day and age. It is recommended to have these portions of scripture well-understood and deeply imbedded in our. The books never ceases to challenge us to lead a life more pleasing and acceptable in the sight of the Lord. May you also be challenged to pick up this book, and also to take up your cross and follow Him!
