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.
