This book is a joy to read. I like that the scriptures quoted are generally included within the text wherever any substantial argument is made from them. I love the lucid, logical, seemingly simple building of reasoning that then leads to clear and concise conclusions. The author leaves us in no doubt as to what his views are, but they are built on clear arguments from the scriptures and make sense. He is intensely honest by saying for instance words to the effect that he has picked what he regards as key elements of discipleship but that the list is not definitive and there are others the he could have chosen, but in the end these were his own critical selection. John Stott writes from a perspective of mature stature, provides great insight and is a phenomenal communicator. It is a truly great book that can be easily read in a day.
