    One thought on “True Discipleship”

    1. What a challenging read.I just flipped through it for a seminary, but with a lot of additional bible study and questions, so I really explored its themes deeply. But I will read it again, when I have more time, because this book is full of topics I have to re-evaluate my whole life. 'True Discipleship' will challenge your way of life and your commitment to Jesus. Please read it, but beware: you might get angry at first when you do read it. It can be hard to accept the Lord's claim to our life. S [...]

    2. I got this book on the recommendation of a friend, and because I had previously read and enjoyed the booklet "Lord, Break Me!" (which is included in this edition of "True Discipleship" as well). Overall, I highly recommend it, especially for those who don't read many teaching books. The author's style is neither stuffy nor over-scholarly; his is the voice of a down-to-earth man of God, calling us earnestly to a deeper commitment in following Christ.The one thing I didn't totally agree with in th [...]

    3. Was a good read.The content was precise and minimalistic, straight to the point.Huge parts of the book dealt with the disciple's relation to money and wealth.This was also the most challenging part.William MacDonald's simple straight to the point writing style is his strength and at the same time, sometimes his weakness.Depending on what type of person you are. Sometimes I just don't want short answers on complex issues, because sometimes short answers are just not enough.And sometimes that just [...]

    4. This is a powerful book that will help shape a person's mindset to being far more Christ-like. There are sections I disagree with quite strongly, but even there my faith has been expanded as I have explored the biblical basis for my contrary view. The study guide section is a simple but effective tool for turning this into a great group work-book. Buy it! Read it! Apply it! See the kingdom grow.

    5. I have very mixed feelings about this book, but the positives make it crucial enough to be worth reading.In short, the thesis of the book is that, as God's servants, it is really important to use our wealth and resources to serve his kingdom. This should not be done in a vague sort of way, but in a way that manifests itself in our every day lives. Being sold out to God, our disposable income should be used not for luxury items, but for His kingdom. For many American Christians, this means a radi [...]

    6. ”De fapt, credința este ceva foarte rațional. Ce este oare mai rațional ca o creatură să se încreadă în Creatorul ei? Este oare nebunie să crezi în Cineva care nu poate nici minți, nici greși, nici să Se înșele? Încrederea în Dumnezeue este cel mai rațional, mai inteligent și mai înțelept lucru pe care îl poateface omul.”

    7. I have read this book 10+ times, both alone and with groups. Following Christ with a whole heart really starts with counting the cost. William MacDonald has stated both the costs and the surpassing value of Christ in such a simple yet profound way that it challenges my commitment every time I read it.

    8. Heroic following is what Jesus/my Faith calls for, this book page after page reminded me of heroic following and that He is Emmanuel - God with us
