What Col and Tony have described here is exactly what I have been trying to do in my own life and in our congregation for years. According to this book, Christians are to be disciple-making disciples and pastors are to be trainers. Superb! This is the best book I've read on the nature of church ministry. --Mark Dever-Senior Pastor Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.
The Trellis and the Vine comes from a ministry so deeply committed to the recovery of biblical truth and the cause of the gospel. Its wisdom is invaluable. My advice: Keep a good stack on hand at all times, and put this book to good use. --R.Albert Mohler-President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Ky
