Neil Cole presents a straightforward approach for multiplying disciples that anyone can do anywhere. "The Life Transformation Group (LTG) system is a grass roots tool for growth. Through this simple system the most essential elements of vital spiritual ministry are released to common Christians without the need for specialized training. It taps the disciple's internal motivation and provides the support needed to grow in the essentials of a spiritual life. The LTG empowers the common Christian to do the uncommon work of reproductive discipling." (p. 63)

Here is a simple overview of what an LTG is: (p. 70)

1. LTGs meet once a week for approximately an hour.

2. LTGs are groups of two or there (the 4th person is the beginning of the second group and multiplication is imminent).

3. The groups are not co-ed, but gender specific.

4. There is no curriculum, workbook or training involved.

5. There is no leader needed in the group.

6. Only three tasks are to be accomplished:

a. Sin is confessed to one another in mutual accountability.

b. Scripture is read repetitively, in entire context and in community.

c. Souls are prayed for strategically, specifically and continuously.

Cole believes in the raising of leaders from the harvest for the harvest. His practical and reproducible approach is a great strategy for church planters who are seeking to start new churches by reaching non-Christians instead of attracting Christians.

Here are some of the strengths of utilizing Life Transformation Groups in a local church (p. 49-51):

1. LTGs build Community - Life change doesn't happen in a vacuum; it happens in relationship with others. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)

This book introduces Life Transformation Groups (LTGs), groups of two or three people who get together once a week for an hour, perhaps over a meal, for mutual accountability (using predefined accountability questions), to reflect on the Scripture they've been reading during the week, and to pray strategically for their unbelieving friends. Probably the simplest and most easily replicable approach to disciple-making we have come across.

This book by Neil Cole is one of the most personally challenging books I have read. What makes it so powerful is that it is so straightforward. The Lord is certainly using Neil Cole to transform people of God. This a clear way of multiplying disciples.

Neil's concept seem so new, yet they are completely based on the solid foundation of scripture. This process allows me to share the Gospel in a meaningful way that excites and lift's me as well so that the growth is sustainable. A good read whether you think you are ready to disciple or not. Matter of fact - don't think about if you are ready or not- read the book.

This book has crucial information, that made me re-evaluate and really connect with my faith in a way I hadn't before. Excellent style, and challenges me to look at what church really is, and what it isn't.
