Review: Rediscovering Discipleship by:Robby Gallaty

Rediscovering Discipleship: Making Jesus’ Final Words Our First Work
About the Book:
Discipleship is the buzzword today. Many believers are contemplating in a fresh way what it means to take the Great Commission seriously. Rediscovering Discipleship takes the guesswork out of Christian maturity.

Based on insights gained from a decade of personally making disciples, author and pastor Robby Gallaty tackles the two hindrances that keep believers from getting involved in making disciples: ignorance and uncertainty. Since many believers have never been personally disciple, they have no model to guide them in discipling others. Their ignorance of the process fuels their uncertainty, which leaves them crippled from the start. With simple principles that are easy to apply, Rediscovering Discipleship provides readers with the tools to follow the Great Commission—to go and actually make disciples who multiply and make disciples.

Gallaty begins with a brief historical overview of the discipleship ministries of influential theologians, preachers, and pastors from years past, and then identifies roadblocks that hinder believers from becoming disciples before offering a step-by-step process for readers to immediately get started on the path to effective disciple making.

My Review:
 Has discipleship come to an end in today's church? What does the lay person need to know to disciple those around him or her?

 The author gives profound evidence backed by scripture to prove his point that discipleship is indeed relevant today and it is something needed to further Christ's mission. He goes into great detail both Biblically and historically to prove Jesus' work to be of the utmost importance today. With rich clarity he expands on all sorts of different methods to get his point across. I was taken back with all the information that was provided.

 The author goes on to provide his own commentary and experiences on the subject but what I found that was a common thread was that in order for today's church to succeed discipleship has to happen and it needs to happen from now until Christ's return. Newcomers that fall under ALL categories not just new Christian need to have an elder or someone with similar experience to come along side and lead if ever we can bring others and keep others in the church.

 This book gives detailed instruction on trying to switch our focus to what started the movement towards Christianity and it's basis in the first place. A must read for anyone wanting to know more about this fascinating subject.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
