Many Christians have unknowingly embraced a lie - the idea that "church" is a once-a-week event rather than a community of Spirit-empowered people; that "ministry" is something pastors do on Sunday morning rather than the 24/7 calling of all true believers; and that "discipleship" is a program rather than the normal state of every follower of Jesus. Drawing on his experience as a pastor and church planter, Jeff Vanderstelt wants us to see that there's more - much more - to the normal Christian life than merely sitting in a pew and listening to a sermon once a week. Rather, God has called his people to something bigger: a view of the Christian life that encompasses the ordinary, the extraordinary, and everything in between.

"A Practical Approach to Disciplemaking"
The author presents a very practical approach to disciple-making, especially in the concept of disciples making disciples who make disciples. While the book is heavy on personal story and examples, these truly serve to reinforce the principles he is presenting. I recommend this book for anyone who is trying to lead a group in the task of reaching the unreached and for those who simply want to understand better how they can represent Christ in their daily life.
"good ideas, disappointing theology"
this book has some great ideas for reaching your community with the gospel, but I was disappointed on the emphasis to look for open doors, listen to the still small voice, etc. if you see a need or way to spread the gospel, go out and do it in a Biblical way, accompanied by prayer and a dependence on God.
"So rich and full of truth and application!!"
This is absolutely the best book I have read on how to live the Christian life to its fullest and see the Lord work through the lives of those who Love Him!! Thank you Jeff!!!
