We grow in Christ as we seek him together. Jesus' pattern of disciplemaking was to be intimately Involved with others, rubbing shoulders and doing life together. By gathering in groups of three or four to study the Bible and encourage one another, we most closely follow Jesus' example with his disciples. This workbook by Greg Ogden is a tool designed to help you follow this pattern. Working through it will deepen your knowledge of essential Christian teachings and strengthen your faith. Each week contains the following elements: a core truth presented in a question-and-answer format, a memory verse and accompanying study, a field-tested inductive Bible study, a reading on the theme for the week, questions to draw out key principles in the reading, This material is designed for groups of three or four, but has also been used successfully as an individual study program, a one-on-one discipling tool, and a small group curriculum. This expanded and completely updated edition also includes a new guide for leaders. Discipleship Essentials is designed to help us grow as disciples and influence others as Jesus did Jesus had a big enough vision to think small. Focusing on a few did not limit his influence-rather, it expanded it. Book jacket.
