Item description for Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time by Greg Ogden...
Overview Drawing on Jesus and Paul's models of discipling a few at a time, this book provides the biblical foundation behind the influential "Discipleship Essentials." (Church Life)
Publishers Description Many churchgoers complain that their churches lack a coherent plan for discipleship and spiritual growth. In turn, many church leaders lament their lack of resources to build and manage effective programs to help people become fully devoted followers of Christ. In Transforming Discipleship Greg Ogden introduces his vision for discipleship, emphasizing that solutions will not be found in large-scale, finely-tuned, resource-heavy programs. Instead, Ogden recovers Jesus' method of accomplishing life change by investing in just a few people at a time. And he shows how discipleship can become a self-replicating process with ongoing impact from generation to generation. Biblical, practical and tremendously effective, Transforming Discipleship provides the insights and philosophy of ministry behind Ogden's earlier work, Discipleship Essentials. Together, these ground-breaking books have the potential to transform how your church transforms the lives of its people.

Reviews - What do customers think about Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time?
Stunning book! Feb 1, 2007
I would highly recommend this book to pastors and leaders who are desperate to see lives transformed into the likeness of Christ. The book is an easy read and makes sense from beginning to end. It has answered many of my questions about small groups and discipleship and greatly encouraged me.
Powerful yet simple Jan 4, 2007
One of the most revealing books on the reasons we have so few transformed lives today. Read this book only if you are truly serious about being an effective discipler and concerned about helping Christians lead transformed lives. Biblically solid and tested methodology explained in a way that will help anyone be more effective in their discipling efforts. If you are looking for just another "program," look elsewhere.
Transforming Discipleship: Making Disciples a Few at a Time Feb 24, 2006
This is an excellent book that points very clearly to how the Church has been distracted from effective disciple making. It shows the failings of the "mass production" approaches to discipleship and calls us back to invest the time in relationships. I highly recommend this book. I plan to lead a group through this material because I found it so valuable.
