I couldn't wait until this book got here... Dec 3, 2000
When I ordered this book from this site.com, I couldn't wait till it got here. When I read it I wasn't disappointed. Ginghamsburg Church (www.ginghamsburg.org) has a reputation for leading people into a radical relationship with Jesus Christ and this book by Mike Slaughter tells the stories and the lessons that we all have to learn to become radical disciples.
Great study book for Small Groups Jun 19, 2000
I am about begin an interim ministry position and this book is going with me. Not only will it serve as inspiration for sermons about what it means to be a "Real Follower" of Jesus, but it will be suggested for small groups to use. The author of the book, Michael Slaughter, is the pastor of one of the largest most culturally relevant churches in the USA-Ginghamsburg Church in Ohio. The real life examples of personal testimony show that this church is really focused on people having more depth and meaning in their life as a result of the decisions they make when they come into a more serious relationship with God through the church. It's what every church should be about. As important as methods and strategies are for church growth, they are all empty without a focus on helping people discover the real difference that faith makes. The age old truths are retold in a fresh contemporary highly relevant way in this book. I know that many people are going to benefit from the insights in each chapter. The book will certainly help pastors like myself, but most of all it is going to be valued in the small groups which study and discuss the signficant and important questions found at the end of each chapter.
