This is a series that resembles a journey, and encompasses the spiritual stages of development from infancy as a new Christian, to the stage where an individual leads a small group.
I have read all of Dr. Comiskey's publications, and this series follows his trademark of crafting language that is understandable for all to read, while at the same time maintaining academic integrity. This is a rare characteristic for a person that has an earned Ph.D., but Joel possesses this ability. Joel models Jesus Christ in this gifting by being inclusive of the masses, while seeking not to exclude anyone.
The nuances from this series is relevant for the long-time believer as well, since much of the subject matter covered in this equipping series may not have been previously encountered by the believer in this level of depth. The reading of this material will generate an introspective look into your life and challenge you to raise the bar.
Joel has included segments in each chapter, which allows the reader to participate in the education enterprise. These segments are entitled: Remember It!, Memorize it!, Apply It!, Try It, and Do it! Following these suggestions will serve as positive reinforcement by exercising what you have read.
If pictures are worth a thousand words, then the power-point presentations and teaching notes that accompany each book are an invaluable tool for training classes, small groups, cell-group leaders, and retreat seminars.
Most importantly this work is not just compiled research, theory, or the author's ideology.Read more ›
Joel has a great ability to focus on the main issues of discipleship without getting trapped into theological nuance, as well as to speak in a language that makes sense both to lifelong Christians and those who are seeking or have just recently come to faith. He does all of this while not being "cheesy"; an issue that many other discipleship tools fall into. He presents material with a great blend of appropriate and illustrative examples with a focus on the Word as the basis for growth.
Taken in order and used as a complete series, these books provide an incredible foundation for life and ministry. We are commanded to "go and make disciples of all nations" - these are tools that will certainly aid in that calling!
The series of books, Live, Encounter, Grow, Share and Lead, used as a 5 step process of training a follower of Christ, have my highest recommendation!
I have looked at many discipleship materials over the last 25 years and I really love the simplicity and usability of this resource. I highly recommend the 5 books in this series. Live; Encounter; Grow; Share and Lead.
