I want to follow Jesus, but I . . .
- don’t know anything about the Bible.
- don’t have a Christian background.
- have drifted so far away, how can I start over?
- have no idea where to begin!
With his years of experience in pastoral ministry, Stephen Smallman ensures that you don’t need prior knowledge to begin your journey with Christ. Whether you’re a brand-new Christian or a disciple renewing your commitment, this practical, basic, step-by-step approach to discipleship will be your guide as you take your first crucial steps on the Walk.
This manual takes you through the basics of being a disciple, introduces you to the gospel and its benefits in Christ, explains doctrines and theological terms, illustrates a life of gospel obedience, and shows how the gospel compels us to follow Jesus in making disciples.
Bible readings, reflection questions, journal assignments, and hands-on projects will help you to grasp the gospel for the first time—or to strengthen your hold on it. Suited for individual study, group study, or use with a mentor.
“This is the fruit of a lifetime of experience in ministry. I recommend this warm, practical, gospel-centered and very useful manual on discipleship.”
“Stephen Smallman has given us a great gift with this book. It’s now the first resource I’d recommend for disciples wanting to make disciples (which should be all of us).”
“Lots of people have a heart for discipleship, but few have the ability to apply the gospel to a person’s spiritual journey (seeker and believer alike) with the compassion and wisdom of Steve Smallman. His heart for God and for people energizes his ministry and this book.”
“A gem of a book which, while aimed specifically at the unbeliever and the new Christian, will yet benefit even those older in the faith who take time to read it and be reminded of, and refreshed by, the great, simple truths of the life-changing gospel.”
