Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Every believer in Jesus Christ deserves the opportunity of personal nurture and development." says LeRoy Eims. But all too often the opportunity isn't there. We neglect the young Christian in our whirl of programs, church services, and fellowship groups. And we neglect to raise up workers and leaders who can disciple young believers into mature and fruitful Christians. In simple, practical, and biblical terms, LeRoy Eims revives the lost art of disciple making. He explains: - How the early church discipled new Christians - How to meet the basic needs of a growing Christian - How to spot and train potential workers - How to develop mature, godly leaders "True growth takes time and tears and love and patience," Eims states. There is no instant maturity. This book examines the growth process in the life of a Christian and considers what nurture and guidance it takes to develop spiritually qualified workers in the church.

About the Author

LeRoy Eims served with the Navigators. He ministered in churches, seminaries, and Bible schools in Europe, the Middle East, the Orient, Australia, and North America.

Format: Paperback
Leroy Eims has hit the nail on the head with this book! My copy of it is about 10 or 11 years old and I still use it! Without a doubt, Eims has mastered one-on-one discipleship in this book. He shares with us the importance of disciple-making and how to do it correctly and systematically. He tells us what to look for in a potential disciple and the four progressive steps in the life of a Bible student: a convert, a disciple, a worker, and a leader. If you want to know the nuts and bolts of personal discipleship, this book is for you! Does anyone have his email or snail mail address? If so, please email it to me! Thanks.

Format: Paperback
The concept of training Christians to be mature, reproducing Christians is not a new concept. Nor is it a concept that is controversial. Christians know that this is an important issue, taught and modeled not only by Jesus but by his followers throughout the New Testament. The problem lies in application. A healthy, disciple producing church can be hard to come by, and even in individual Christians' lives, the practice of discipleship can be a rare commodity. This book is valuable in that it outlines the biblical view on discipleship, but the book goes further in providing many concrete examples of how discipleship is to be pulled off. An appendix in the back is essentially a guide for discipleship meetings giving thirty important topics and the tools to be able to hold a bible study with each of these topics. A characteristic of the book that I especially appreciated and found helpful was the author's continual emphasis of the role of the Word of God in discipleship. This is the foundation for the theory of discipleship, and it is also the main tool that we use in actually performing discipleship. This book is refreshingly simple, yet challenging. It is challenging because there is amazing potential in doing biblical discipleship in our churches and in our individual lives.

The only negative I found in the book was one that I commonly struggle with when reading Christian non-fiction. At times the author appears arrogant, especially in the use of personal experiences. There was more than one story in this book about how some misguided individual was enlightened by the wise example of the author himself. This writing style always bothers me and always comes across as arrogant. Do not let this distract from the main thrust of the book, for the content of the book is valuable.

Format: Paperback
As someone that has the responsibility of making Disciples I found this book to be very helpful. It reaffirmed many tried and proven methods of Disciple Making. It alos gave insight in the the process of choosing people that are ready to be discipled. It gave several lists of things that can be used in a disciple making ministry, all of them were very usefule. I hope that you find this bok as enjoyable as I did.

This is a great book for small group leaders! I found it very informative, it guides you through a serious steps and ideas to stimulate growth in yourself or the people in your group that you are mentoring. I recommend this book to everyone who has some type of leadership in the church. Easy read, very enjoyable, and very informative.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dennis McCallum on February 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
This famous book is an excellent introduction to the idea of disciple making, this book includes a few study guides in the back that could be used in a cooperative study with disciples. Eims is passionate to persuade people of the value of disciple making. The only unfortunate thing about this book is that it is brief, and only covers the early stages of this lost art.

There is nobody out there teaching us this stuff. This is what we as Christians have been missing. We have to fight to learn to disciple others effectively and this is one of the best books i have ever read and one of the best places to start.
