9780761860181: The Great CoMission: Making Sense of Making Disciples

This book presupposes that pastors and seminarians deeply desire to answer the question of all questions: how do I make disciples of Jesus Christ? The Great CoMission: Making Sense of Making Disciples is a helpful guide for pastors in the field, yet "meaty" enough for seminarians in the classroom. In The Great CoMission, readers will encounter useful principles for discipleship and solid biblical theology for ministry. This unique book approaches the Great Commission from a rite-of-passage framework, therefore allowing for serious consideration of the internal mechanisms of Matthew 28:16-20 by focusing on the relationship between initiation, instruction, and Jesus' promise to be with the church to the end of the age. Morton writes from a Wesleyan, cross-cultural, and missiological perspective, avoiding the popular method of using the Great Commission merely as a holy launching pad for retelling the story of a mega church.

Review:

Brooks Morton has done us all a favor by combining exegetical skills with a fine biblical model of discipleship. . . . Not only a ‘must read’ but a ‘must do.’ (Steven Tsoukalas, Ph.D., assistant professor of apologetics and Christian thought at Wesley Biblical Seminary)

The church must make disciples or die. . . . This is one of the best books on discipleship I have ever read. (Reverend Mike Mayhugh, senior pastor of Christ United Methodist Church, Texas)

Understanding the basic mission of the church as a ‘co-mission’ with God has broad application across the age spectrum in local congregations. . . . [His] model in the appendix is worth the price of the book alone. (Reverend Jim Turley, senior vice president and executive director, Texas Methodist Foundation, Institute for Clergy and Congregational Excellence)

Leaving nothing to chance, Brooks has done a fabulous job of integrating practical theology, rich spirituality, and life-giving accountability. I wouldn’t use any other approach to confirmation. (Reverend Brian Brownlow, First United Methodist Church, Sweetwater, Texas)
