Making Disciples - One Conversation at a Time

Overview

Jesus was a conversationalist, and that's how He taught. Through intimate exchanges with His disciples, He opened their eyes to the marvels of the Kingdom.

Overview

Jesus was a conversationalist, and that's how He taught. Through intimate exchanges with His disciples, He opened their eyes to the marvels of the Kingdom. And at the proper time, He commissioned them to go and make disciples of all nations, teaching each one all they had learned. Christ calls believers to do the same today. He asks them to make disciples as He did-one conversation, one relationship at a time. But sometimes we spend more time keeping track of how many people we've told about Christ than we do getting to know them.

Making disciples is more than witnessing to nonbelievers and tallying numbers. Making disciples is really about building authentic relationships with those closest to us and helping them follow Jesus through heart-to-heart talks and committed friendships. This book challenges you to reexamine your idea of evangelism and discipleship and reconsider what you say in your daily conversations. Author D. Michael Henderson will show you how to turn your everyday interactions into open doors through which you can tell others about God and His love for them.
