Publishers Description Do you want your life to count for Christ? Would you like to make a real impact for God's kingdom in this world? You can -- and you don't have to be a great leader for it to happen. Just a good follower. In Following Christ, Joseph Stowell shows why Christ's command to 'Follow me' isn't merely the starting point of Christianity. It's the very heartbeat of vibrant, effective faith. And it's not just for a few gifted leaders, but for all believers. Stowell shows you what happens when an ordinary man or woman pursues not the trappings of Christianity, but Christ himself. You'll discover - What a 'non-negotiated follower' looks like - Why God does his best work through followers - Why self-directed living is a recipe for emptiness - What makes Christ so worth following - What it means to pick up your cross - Why a close walk with Jesus is the key to effective living -- Following Christ paints a compelling portrait of Christianity the way God intended it, marked by simplicity, vigorous faith, purpose and direction, soul-winning impact on others . . . and above all, a joyous, growing closeness with Christ.

One of the best Christ-centered books of all time! May 6, 1998
After working at a Christian bookstore for over two years I have read a large amount of evangelical literature. Rarely have I read a book twice, but with this book I have read it over 6 times! I have bought over 20 copies to give as presents, and continue to recomend it to friends. Stowell has hit the heart of the issue of what it means to be a "Christian", and how we need to re-focus ourselves to be Followers of Christ rather than leaders of a church, etc. Highly recomended to everyone from a non-believer to the veteran, well read, mature believer.
A must read for those tired of "arm chair" Christianity Mar 20, 1998
Wow! Joseph Stowell challenges you to explore what it means to be a follower of Christ. This is not an easy book to read if you like your comfort zone, but it contains a spectacular and thrilling call to put your life on the line, take up your cross and follow Christ. This is one of those books that challenges your preconcieved ideas of Christianity and life with Christ. I don't think I will ever think of following Christ in the same way again. I highly recommend this book.
