I’ve been involved in discipling men for about forty years now. I have also been the beneficiary of being discipled. I’ve certainly read a number of discipleship books…plenty for a lifetime.
So when Zondervan sent me a (unsolicited) copy of The Disciple Maker’s Handbook I came pretty close to setting it aside. I decided to give it a read. I’m glad I did.
Harrington and Patrick do a terrific job of both offering practical instruction while peppering the book with thoughtful insights on discipleship. This is an accessible book that novices to ministries of discipleship will find most helpful. This kind of accessibility many times means something leans towards the superficial, but thankfully it is not the case with this book.
One of the many strengths of this book are the various exhortations and insights on being intentional when it comes to discipleship ministries.
