a thorough book dealing with being a disciple of Christ. a lot of good information. solid. potatoes, but not much sour cream. a lot of biblical illustrations. challenges. not very provocative though. if you are looking for an explanation of discipleship, this book is for you. if you are looking to be challenged and inspired, listen to a sermon by a red-hot bible preacher.

Recommends it for: Any follower of Christ.
This is a wonderful book to help the believer take their call to discipleship to heart. J. Oswald Sanders does a wonderful job of explaining what true discipleship is. I would highly recommend answering the questions (usually only 3) at the end of each chapter to help you evaluate where you are in your discipleship journey.

This book is a good introductory, textbook style treatise on the various aspects of discipleship. Sanders doesn't go deep with any of the topics (purposely), but surveys the traits of a disciple, the habits of a disciple, and the fruit of a disciple.
