Dwight L. Moody: Evangelist and Master Disciple Maker
by Lyle W. Dorsett

Living Faithfully in a Fallen World
by Rob Norris
One of the great challenges for all Christians is to hold the balance between mind and heart, between doctrine and experience. If the doctrine is wrong, then the whole practice of our Christian faith will become distorted, and our Christian lives will be the poorer. Yet in our generation many Christians often say that they are looking for what they think is “practical” help in their living of the Christian life. When they hear of a “doctrine,” they become convinced that it belongs to the realm of the mind and dismiss it as having little or no practical value and consequently neglect or even avoid it. One of those doctrines frequently thought of in this way is sanctification.


Discipleship or Grace: Must It Be One or the Other?
by William L. Kynes
Christians can quite easily become subject to a kind of spiritual schizophrenia. On the one hand, we are told that the gospel is a message of grace. God sent his Son into the world to die for our sin so that we might be forgiven. In response we must renounce all efforts at self-justification and put our faith solely in Jesus Christ as our Savior, resting completely in what he has done for us in his finished work on the cross. We are justified by grace alone through faith alone.


Following Jesus Christ
by Thomas A. Tarrants, III, D.Min.
As Jesus traveled throughout Israel urging people to repent and believe the gospel, “Follow me” was a constant refrain in his message. At the beginning of his ministry, he called his first disciples with the terse command, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” As his ministry progressed, he told the crowds, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34). At the end of his earthly ministry, he recommissioned the repentant Peter with the words, “Follow me” (John 21:19).

It has been my pleasure to be mentored by and to walk with some influential spiritual leaders, including Dick Halverson, Carl F. H. Henry, Jim Houston, Bill Bright, and Charles Malik, all of whom have impacted the nation’s capital in some way. But I know of no one who has had a more far-reaching ministry of discipleship than Roy Cook. Nor unnoticed. And, how he did it, can be emulated by any child of God.

A Summons to Convenantal Discipleship
by Jonathan M. Lunde
The Current "Discipleship Crisis" Anyone who is listening to what many professing Christians are saying about their faith these days knows that we have a bit of a "discipleship crisis" on our hands. Though there are many dimensions to this crisis, it stems in large part the frequent adoption of increasingly truncated versions of biblical Christianity.


The Call to Follow Christ
by John Stott
At its simplest Christ's call was "Follow me." He asked men and women for their personal allegiance. He invited them to learn from him, to obey his words and to identify themselves with his cause.


Spiritual Discipleship
by J. Oswald Sanders
Ye call me Master and Lord: and you say well; for so I am. —John 13:13 kjv
Jesus Christ . . . is Lord of all. —Acts 10:36

The question of authority is one of the burning issues of our times. It is challenged in every sphere—in family, church, school, and community.


What is True Christianity?
by J.I. Packer & Gary A. Parrett
Let us be clear on this. Christianity is not in essence a moral code or an ascetic routine, as so many down the centuries have mistakenly supposed. Rather, it is a supernaturalizing personal relationship with a supernatural personal Savior.


True Conversion and Wholehearted Commitment
by Thomas A. Tarrants, III, D.Min.
David Brainerd died on October 9, 1747, in Jonathan Edwards’s home in Northampton, Massachusetts. In what Edwards saw as a singular act of God’s providence, Brainerd had been persuaded by friends not to destroy his diary.


David Brainerd: "A Constant Stream"
by David B. Calhoun
Ours is not the obedience of one who seeks to justify himself before God but the obedience of one who, in grateful love, seeks to please him “who loved us and gave himself up for us.”

Transforming Impact of True Discipleship
by Thomas A. Tarrants
There is a crisis of discipleship in the American church today. Reams of research confirm the simple observation that in many ways the lives of most professing Christians are not much different from their nonbelieving neighbors. Like ancient Israel and the church in some periods of history, we have adopted the beliefs, values, and behaviors of the surrounding culture to an alarming degree.


C.S. Lewis on Authentic Discipleship
by Christopher W. Mitchell
Walter Hooper has on several occasions stated that C.S. Lewis was the most thoroughly converted person he had ever met. If I were to put what Hooper was saying into biblical language, it would go something like this: “From the time Lewis came to faith in Jesus Christ to the day he died, he desired, worked, and struggled, sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing, to bring all of his life captive to Christ.”


Become a Disciple of Jesus: He Demands Our All
by William L. Kynes
Since the U.S. government moved to an all-volunteer military in the 1970s the Army has advertised itself to potential recruits in various ways. In the 1980s the slogan was “Be all that you can be. Join the U.S. Army” or “It’s a great place to start.” The Army provided training that would prepare you for the job market, and through the G.I. Bill you could earn money for college. It was a great deal: Do yourself a favor. Fulfill your potential.


The Discipleship Deficit: Where Have All the Disciples Gone?
by Greg Ogden
If we are to devise a successful strategy of disciple making in our churches, we must first assess the gap between where we are and where we are called to go. Max De Pree, who has popularized this biblical wisdom as top priority for leaders, writes, ”The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.”


Discipleship for Changing Times and Ministries
by Michael Wilkins
As I stand on a bluff overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean near our home in Southern California, I watch lines of waves forming far out on the horizon. The waves that finally break near shore are much larger today than normal.
