TAKE TIME AND TROUBLE TO KEEP YOURSELF SPIRITUALLY FIT.
(1 TIMOTHY 4:7 PHILLIPS)
As J. Oswald Sanders points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ—it involves the whole person and lifestyle.
Those with only a superficial belief will soon fall away from the faith, but Sanders says a true disciple would rather be presented with a difficult challenge than a soft option. Disciples are charged with the task of training themselves to be godly, because it is their responsibility to remain spiritually fit. Ever-fresh topics in this time-tested volume include:
¿ the disciple’s second chance
¿ the disciple’s olympics
¿ the disciple’s ambition
¿ the disciple’s right
¿ the disciple’s senior partner
¿ the disciple’s maturity
In addition, a “For Reflection” guide is included, making this book ideal for both individual and group study.

I have seen a change in the lives of the students who have been studying this book. Because of this book, many of the lives at the Tabernacle Baptist Church have been transformed. Also discipleship has taken on a deeper meaning and facilitated a deeper commitment to and from our congregation.
I must respectfully disagree with the review presented by W.R Murphy on July 15, 2010 when he writes, "his (Sanders')position on discipleship in relation to salvation makes disciplship optional for the professing Christian." Not only does Sanders NOT detach discipleship from salvation nor make discipleship optional...he makes it very clear that the marks of true discipleship are the only marks of truly belonging to Christ. Mr. Murphy's quote from Bonhoeffer is meant to draw a distinction with Sanders yet they are actually in harmony...in fact Sanders quotes Bonhoeffer himself frequently in many of his books.
A must read for anyone...especially if you want to get back to the biblical standards of discipleship laid out by Jesus and the Bible!!!
J. Oswald Sanders lays out both what discipleship looks like and more importantly, what a disciple of Christ looks like. Biblically grounded, the book is a good evaluation tool for any person to use for their own life. I would not only recommend that every person read this book, but then take it and teach it to others, theough one-on-one discipleship, small groups or a large group study.
Definitely a book I recommend for group study or personal growth, along with the other works by this author.
