9780802482518: Spiritual Discipleship: Principles of Following Christ for Every Believer (Commitment To Spiritual Growth)

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
