Take up your cross Jun 21, 2006
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.
great devotional material, one which challenged me enter the full-time ministry! May 21, 2006
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!
Five stars is just not enough! Aug 31, 2005
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.
Da Bomb Diggity Aug 9, 2004
Judging from the fact that this book was written in the 60's I was certain that it couldn't speak to me, that is until I finally put aside my complaints and picked up Boice's work. It rocks the hizzouse and teaches all the phat things you need to know about the basic Christian life. Be prepared to get serious and get rocked-because if you take any of his words to heart (solidly based off of Jesus' teachings) your life should become radically different. Peace
Boice's best Oct 31, 2002
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.
