"I can think of no other time in history where the name of Jesus has been so frequently mentioned and the content of His life and teaching so thoroughly ignored". - Brennan Manning, Lion and Lamb
The teachings of Jesus Christ shook the traditions that had arisen during the four hundred years between the testaments and He fulfilled the Law in a way that few had ever anticipated. To follow Him requires the utmost, yet those who do so find that they gain the abundant life that Jesus came to give.
In practice, discipleship was arguably the most difficult teaching of Jesus. In this book Mark Bailey explores what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. He finds seven distinct characteristics that must be found in the life of anyone who ventures to "take up his cross" and follow Christ. I have listed them below with a few of the Scripture references that Bailey used to support them (so you can study their impact for yourself):
Supreme and incomparable love for Jesus - Matt. 10:35-37. Regular study and devotion to God's Word - Jn. 8:31-32; Heb. 5:11-14 Renunciation of yourselves as the authority and focus of our lives - Matt. 16:24; James 1:23-25; Gal. 5:16-25 A life of submission and sacrifice to the cross - Matt. 16:24; Rom. 6:1-14; 1 Cor. 3:3; 2 Cor. 4:11; Gal 2:20. Allegiance to Christ's compelling leadership -1 Kings 19:19-62; Matt. 4:18-22; Lk. 9:57,59,61,62. Recognition of the true ownership of our possessions - Lk. 14:28-33; 1 Cor. 6:19,20. Reflection of Christ's love in our attitudes and actions toward others - John 13:34-35; Jn. 15:1-17; 1 Tim. 1:5.
This is just the skeleton of the book and it already looks convicting. Well, it is...and it should be.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By L. E. Brown on March 28, 1998
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Building on the work of William MacDonald, (True Discipleship, Kettrick Press, 1961), the author illuminates the meaning of Jesus' seven "discipleship sayings" with a liberal selection of cogent personal anecdotes. This volume, which omits the substantive exegetical work for which the author is known, was clearly edited for the layman. This lucid volume will help unlock Jesus' command to "go and make disciples." There is one unfortunate shortcoming. Although each chapter includes questions intended to help the reader interact with the material, more help answering the "So what?" question would have been helpful.
