What exactly does discipleship look like? How can you measure Christian maturity? Is there a process that produces the greatest results of this undefined standard? These are all questions that the church world has asked. Depending upon who you talk to, you will get different answers and every church will model it differently. Pope tries to deal with some of these tough questions and give examples of what he has seen work in his own church. Overall I give the book a four out of five.
Pope recognizes that the church has done a bad job of creating disciples in the past, but he gives hope for the future. Though one could try to copy his template for making disciples and be successful, one will probably have to change it up a little to maximize the results.
Without going into too many details of the book, I would say that it is a good read for those in church leadership, especially if you are responsible for discipleship in any fashion. It was a fairly easy read with lots of practical information and personal stories from Pope.
As fair disclaimer, I did receive this for free from BookSneeze in exchange for a fair and honest review. This is my own review and I was not required to rate it as highly as I did. Now, go and make disciples.
