Reviews - What do customers think about Real Faith for Real Life?
growing as disciples of Christ Oct 25, 2007
Our church uses Real Faith for Real Life as part of our discipleship program for new members. The book is well-received by those attending discipleship classes. The narrative format, personal insights, and questions for reflection are a helpful addition to the other written materials we use. The book presents discipleship in a way that is inviting, personal, approachable, and realistic. We have received good comments on the book from both new Christians and mature believers.
Discipleship spelled out May 12, 2007
I am a pastor and was looking for a practical resource that could be recommended to laity within the church. Michael Foss has created a very user friendly guide to spiritual disciplines that takes the mystery out of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. Each mark of discipleship has its own chapter, and each chapter is broken down into smaller sections that are convenient for individual reflection and small group study. And best of all, it is Biblical.
Sorry take on The Cost of Discipleship Apr 11, 2007
High hopes for this book were dashed almost immediately -- one would do much better to re-read Bonhoeffer thoughtfully. The real danger in this book is lack of recognition of the Lutheran understanding of grace and its centrality in our faith and salvation. One would nearly believe that Christianity is a six-step program.
