Dr. Oberbrunner has again mixed deep theology with everyday stories to make an easy-to-read book.

Kary calls us to explore what all of this really means, what it really looks like, and how it is truly applied in real and meaningful life.

Dr. Oberbrunners frank, open style is a perfect fit for the subject matter of this book, authentic discipleship. Unlike so much of the other watered down, feel good, prosperity discipleship that is offered up today this author has the courage and scriptural knowledge to clearly define the components of authentic discipleship, and a measurement paridigm as well. I appreciate how he honestly shares his own ups and downs in his spiritual walk through out the book. After my first read through it I am now using it as a study guide in my mens group. I have seen tremendous growth in all of us as a result of the dialog the book brings forth.

This book achieves the goal of being both entertaining and practical. The author's style is very conversational and relaxed, which makes the book an easy read. Yet, at the same time, Kary Oberbrunner outlines a clear path on how to continually improve as a follower of Christ.
The four legs of discipleship - Knowing, Being, Doing, Reproducing - are clearly explained, and Kary provides a straightforward guide on how to continually improve in these four areas. This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to improve his or her walk with Christ and truly grow as one of His disciples.

Pastor Kary's book is a must-read for every born-again believer. He takes the Word of God and describes the four components of discipleship- knowing, doing, being and reproducing. Anyone who wants to be a whole-hearted follower of Jesus Christ should read this incredibly well-written book.

God will truly bless the minds and hearts of all who will read this book. Having known Kary Oberbrunner since his college days, I can attest to the fact that this is a young man who lives what he writes. His personal passion to become all that God has called him to be is exciting and contagious. Kary's closing comments from the book reflect his personal passion for Christ and His Church: "We need to recognize our role in God's grand plan. If we fail to see the main plot [Matthew 28: 19, 20], then we will fail to understand our role. I am humbled to know I am part of a much larger story. I am humbled that God has commissioned me to reproduce His seed within the hearts of others." Thanks, Kary. This book will plant many seeds that will bear fruit for the glory of God.

In the process of starting a new church this book has been great in helping both believers and people just checking out this God thing to know their calling. It' a fun, yet practical read, that has taken my understanding of discipleship to new depths. Great book. You will have to check out his other book too, The Journey Towards Relevance.

"Called: Becoming Who You Were Born to Be" is a must read book. Kary Oberbrunner has the task of telling us what we should be doing in our Christian walk. In the first chapter, Why Discipleship?, he hits the nail on the head when he is talking about most views of discipleship. We need to step up to the plate and take action as Christians! There rest of the book is no doubt going to amazing and may put us in our place.

Format: Paperback
In a Christian circle, we often find ourselves under the impression that it is a duty to serve God; when in fact, it is our privilege. In Kary's book, "Called: Becoming Who You Were Born to be", I found myself realizing that in a society which deems half-hearted as acceptable, we as believers are blessed with an awareness of a greater existence under the leadership of Christ. Kary links the talk with the walk in this innovative and refreshing reminder of God's desire for our lives.

Format: Paperback
I loved the first chapter of this book. I think as believers, we fail to be honest about what true discipleship is. Life more abundant (as Jesus promises) is indeed abundant, but there's so much more than simply the salvation and the joy that comes with it. We have to, like in any relationship, work for it. If we put in that work with Jesus, we will become who we are called ot be in Christ. Oberbrunner's first chapter touches on this--I can't wait to see the next chapters and what Oberbrunner will delve into to prove/build/defend/exhaust/confirm his point.
