The best book on discipleship that I've ever read! May 28, 2007
Pastor Kary's book is a must-read for every born-again believer. He takes the Word of God and describes the four components of discipleship- knowing, doing, being and reproducing. Anyone who wants to be a whole-hearted follower of Jesus Christ should read this incredibly well-written book.
Must read Apr 20, 2007
"Called: Becoming Who You Were Born to Be" is a must read book. Kary Oberbrunner has the task of telling us what we should be doing in our Christian walk. In the first chapter, Why Discipleship?, he hits the nail on the head when he is talking about most views of discipleship. We need to step up to the plate and take action as Christians! There rest of the book is no doubt going to amazing and may put us in our place.
A Must Have Manual Apr 19, 2007
In a Christian circle, we often find ourselves under the impression that it is a duty to serve God; when in fact, it is our privilege. In Kary's book, "Called: Becoming Who You Were Born to be", I found myself realizing that in a society which deems half-hearted as acceptable, we as believers are blessed with an awareness of a greater existence under the leadership of Christ. Kary links the talk with the walk in this innovative and refreshing reminder of God's desire for our lives.
Not Watered Down Apr 19, 2007
I loved the first chapter of this book. I think as believers, we fail to be honest about what true discipleship is. Life more abundant (as Jesus promises) is indeed abundant, but there's so much more than simply the salvation and the joy that comes with it. We have to, like in any relationship, work for it. If we put in that work with Jesus, we will become who we are called ot be in Christ. Oberbrunner's first chapter touches on this--I can't wait to see the next chapters and what Oberbrunner will delve into to prove/build/defend/exhaust/confirm his point.
Ever wonder...? Apr 18, 2007
Ever wonder what your purpose is in life? Ever wonder if you've lost your focus? Kary addresses this in the very beginning of this book. From the start I asked myself "Where is my focus in life?" and it helped me relate with the first chapter. He reminds us that "life is all about God" and that "[we]'ve been called adventure of epic proportions." Making disciples is crucial in the world today...look around and you can understand why. I can't wait to read more of this book!
