Item description for Spiritual Discipleship: Principles of Following Christ for Every Believer by J. Oswald Sanders...
Overview In this revised edition, Sanders details the scriptural components of following Christ, stressing the need for putting others before oneself, and recognizing Christ in our everyday lives. The study questions at the end of the text help those who seek a better understanding of servanthood.
As J. Oswald points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ--it involves the whole person and lifestyle.
Those with only superficial belief will soon fall away from the faith, but Sanders says a true disciple would rather be presented with a difficult challenge than a soft option. Disciples are charged with the task of training themselves to be godly, because it is their responsibility to remain spiritually fit. Ever-fresh topics in this time-tested volume include:
the disciple's second chance
the disciple's ambition
the disciple's senior partner
the disciple's Olympics
the disciple's right
the disciple's maturity

Spiritual Discipleship Challenged Sep 27, 2007
I have read numerous books on discipleship and spiritual discipleship. J.Oswald Sanders brings a fresh perspective to the meaning of discipleship. He challenges the conventional definitions and demands of discipleship and places them alongside the precepts and principles lived and taught by Jesus Christ in the Scriptures.
I have seen a change in the lives of the students who have been studying this book. Because of this book, many of the lives at the Tabernacle Baptist Church have been transformed. Also discipleship has taken on a deeper meaning and facilitated a deeper commitment to and from our congregation.
