Book Description

This brand new Bible study series from beloved Bible teacher Kay Arthur and the teaching staff of Precept Ministries tackles important issues in brief, easy-to-grasp lessons you can benefit from personally or as part of a small group. Each book in the series includes six 40-minute studies designed to draw you into God’s Word through basic inductive Bible study. As Kay explains, "Rather than simply reading or listening to what others say about a subject, you are going to see for yourself what God says about it." Join one of the world’s most respected Bible teachers in a study that will revolutionize your thinking--and your life.

What is the difference between a true follower of Jesus Christ and others who merely call themselves "Christian"? Kay Arthur and Tom and Jane Hart point the way to clear answers in this instructive study of what Jesus had to say about the subject.
Through these eye-opening inductive studies of passages from the Gospels, you can better understand the distinctive marks of a disciple of Christ and how to make sure they are true of your own life.
Join Kay Arthur in exploring what it means to count the cost, deny yourself, and follow Christ.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am currently using this book for a study at home with my husband, two daughters (teens) and a good friend. We are all in varying places of spiritual development and maturity so it has been interesting to hear the different opinions on the depth of the material. Those of us who have been following Christ for awhile have heard the scriptures used in the book many times and so the concepts presented sometimes seem basic. However, my youngest daughter (15) feels it is way over her head. And even for those of us who have heard it before, we have learned things we did not know and of couse, even reminders are always beneficial because who among us has actually mastered what it means to be a disciple? :-)

It has been taking us closer to 90 minutes to complete each week's material. I definitely recommend the book but someone does need to be appointed as a facilitator. The facilitator should read ahead of the group each week and be prepared to guide the conversation. (and that is recommended in the book - good advice!) We have not been doing that prior to this week and I think that is why it is taking so long. Plus the facilitator is then prepared to help those in the group who may have less Bible knowledge or understanding of theology and also challenge those in the group who give the "Sunday school response" to go deeper in their answers to the discussion questions.

I bought this book hoping to introduce those closest to me to inductive Bible study which Kay Arthur is a huge proponent of. I'm not sure it has really accomplished that goal but what it has done is to make us really think and contemplate on what it means to be a follower of Jesus. What is the true cost? How do we know if we or others are truly followers? What has Christ promised His disciples?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good study material July 23, 2002
Format:Paperback
I am doing a Bible study with two of my friends and we do not have a lot of time to spend. What this study does is focus on the subject. We spend the time on the study part and that gives us more time to spend on our fellowship and prayer portions. It is not that we don't want to spend more time studying, but that with our schedules, we only have a limited time for it with each other. I would recommend this for a good study with the people wanting to have a varied time together, studying, praying, fellowshipping. A great tool.

I'm doing this study with a group of college girls and we are being impacted by the many scriptures that teach what Christianity is really all about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Serious layout issues July 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The digital version of this book has serious issues. We had members of our group reading it on everything from Nook to Kindle iPad app, and at times the writing is completely impossible to follow. If we had not had paper copies in our group, the electronic version would have been useless.
