This book was much more readable than the sermons and theology that I usually find myself in. At the same time, I felt that the author didn't have much of a voice—as a writer, the book seemed over-polished to me, if that's possible. But my problem could be that I am not accustomed to "popular" non-fiction, and that's the mold this book fits.
Stearns differentiates between deciders and disciples - those who make a decision for Christ and then seek "their own plans...... and invite Jesus to bless them," and those who "...embrace their Master's mission and serve their Master's purposes."
Stearns book is a reminder that our identity should be deeply centered on the fact that we were made by Christ and for His purposes (Paul speaking of the supremacy of Christ in Colossians 1:16). With our identity secured in being created for Jesus' purposes, disciple-making becomes a priority.
Stearns rich use of scripture dares the reader to look inside to one's heart and observe ones actions to see if they are aligned with the Word of God. "Why do you call me, `Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?"
God have mercy upon us.

Anyone who can read this book or "The Hole In Our Gospel" and feel satisfied that they are sufficiently fulfilling the role God has designed for them is deluding themselves. This is a must read.
