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.

Following this foundational section, Eims presents an exceedingly practical section covering the last two thirds of the book called "The Process of Making Disciples." The only real critique I can bring to this review is that the book loses some of its continuity of thought in the last part of the book. It looks like the last half of the book is a series of teachings loosely related to discipleship but not really linked to each other. All of the chapters are helpful but it doesn't have the flow of the first 50 pages. Still, this book is a must read for those interested in disciple making. After the Bible, this is a great place to start in your thinking about fulfilling the Great Commission.
His list of specific steps for training disciples(as are many others) I think tends to be too "shake and bake"
While scripture memorization, reading books, and time management are admirable traits, many men must be introduced to these concepts slowly. A majority of the population I deal with is not college educated and would be overwhelmed by Eims Discipleship to do list. Manifesting God's Grace, loving our fellow believers and all men, demonstrating that our decision making principles are guided by God's word are all good starters. The men I usually work with need to see that what is being asked of them is being lived out before them by their mentor/teacher
