Publishers Description A year 2000 Finalist in the ECPA book competition Discover the fullness of life in Christ. We grow in Christ as we seek him together. Jesus' own pattern of disciple-making was to be intimately involved with others and allow life to rub against life. By gathering in twos or threes to study the Bible and encourage one another, we most closely follow Jesus' example with the twelve disciples. This workbook by Greg Ogden is a tool designed to help you follow this pattern Jesus drew for us. Working through it will deepen your knowledge of essential Christian teaching and strengthen your faith. Each week contains the following elements: a core truth presented in a question-answer format a memory verse and accompanying study a field-tested inductive Bible study a reading on the theme for the week questions to draw out key principles in the reading This material is designed for groups of three. It has also been used successfully as an individual study program, a one-on-one discipling tool and small group curriculum. Jesus had a big enough vision to think small. Focusing on a few did not limit his influence. Rather, it expanded it. Discipleship Essentials is designed to help us influence others as Jesus did--by investing in a few. Second edition includes a new foreword by the author. These studies are for both individuals and groups.

Love the book Mar 4, 2010
Our church is reading and working very hard on this book at the time of this review. I find just the opening pages is a very good description of where the church is to-day. It is my hope and prayer that this book will change me and the group that im in, to glorify God through Jesus my Lord. Amen
This book is a homerun
Excellent Workbook Nov 12, 2009
It's a great tool to use in discipleship relationships. Great for one-on-one or a small group. It's great for understanding our purpose in Christ - to make disciples. Completely focused and based on God's word.
Discipleship the Right Way Nov 1, 2009
Greg Ogden emphasizes the long-term relationship involved with serious discipleship. To him, it's neither a short nor easy program that can be accomplished without dedication and commitment. The book includes chapters focused on the basics of Christianity that will help the disciple grow deep roots to withstand anything. Each section is formatted in an attractive and approachable manner that equips the Christian for every good work.
Discipleship Essentials - Excellent Tool Oct 27, 2009
I use this workbook as a tool to lead others to knowing more about their Christian faith in a small group setting (3-4 people). You do not have to be a teacher to use this material. It is a great tool for new and well seasoned Christians alike. It explains Christian concepts in a very good format. It helps new Christians to understand their faith and it reminds seasoned Christians of things they may have forgotten. It also is helpful in that it gives you a renewed confidence to share your faith with others. I highly recommend this workbook for every Christian - no matter where you are in your walk with the Lord.
