From the Back Cover

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.

About the Author

J. OSWALD SANDERS (1917-1992) was a Christian leader for nearly seventy years and authored more than forty books on the Christian life including The Incomparable Christ, Spiritual Discipleship, Spiritual Leadership, and Spiritual Maturity. He left a promising law practice in his native New Zealand to serve as an instructor and administrator at the Bible College of New Zealand. Dr. Sanders later became general director of the China Inland Mission (now the Overseas Missionary Fellowship), and was instrumental in beginning many new missions projects throughout East Asia.

I have read numerous books on discipleship and spiritual discipleship. J.Oswald Sanders brings a fresh perspective to the meaning of discipleship. He challenges the conventional definitions and demands of discipleship and places them alongside the precepts and principles lived and taught by Jesus Christ in the Scriptures.

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.

This book is amazing! I've taken 5 men through it and many more from our church are taking it on! The best part of it is that it isn't merely Sanders' philosophical position loosely backed with Scripture...instead it's rich in Scripture which Sander's uses to reveal how the Church has softened what it means to truly follow Christ. In one chapter, he reveals how in the early Church the word "Christian" equalled "disciple". Yet today, we've diminished the word "Christian" to merely mean "believer" while a "disciple" is now only meant to reference someone "really serious about their faith."

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!!!

Thought provoking chapters that left one with something to think about and challenged me to reflect on many aspects of my walk with Christ.

While my reading of J. Oswald Sanders is limited to just a couple of his books thus far, I have found that each is full of a wealth of information. His books are exceptional, applicable, and needed in the church today.
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.

I was introduced to J. Oswald Sanders by first reading Spiritual Leadership, and I have to say I have not been disappointed by this work either. The writing style is direct, concise, and Bible based. The sections and chapters are fairly short, and I found it an easy and quick book to read through. Sanders pulls many great insights and principles from the sayings and actions of Jesus as He led His disciples to greater maturity (as well as other passages). I really enjoyed the chapters on conditions for discipleship, love, compassion, maturity, the Holy Spirit, and hope.

Definitely a book I recommend for group study or personal growth, along with the other works by this author.
