Overview

The author lays out the problems of the Christian church in America today - declining attendance, spiritual apathy and cultural irrelevance - and demonstrates they are directly related to the lack of discipleship training provided by the church and expected of the average Christian. But how would Jesus recruit, educate and train disciples? Wouldn’t it be great if there were a book on how to do that? Wouldn’t that be the perfect way to model our lives? Wouldn’t that be the perfect mission to organize a local congregation around? Isn’t that what Christian churches are supposed to do? Currently there are dozens of books available on discipleship by all sorts of authors who come at the subject from every different perspective. But if we really want to know Jesus’ ideas on the subject, why not examine the “books” written by the disciples that Jesus personally trained? Revolutionary Discipleship examines the Gospel of Matthew to see exactly how Jesus trained his original disciples and how Christ expects us to be disciples and to make disciples of others. Unlike most discipleship books you may have seen that quote two verses and then expand them into an entire book, he follows Matthew’s account of Jesus’ training of His disciples verse by verse and in context. It’s a journey to discover what the Apostle Matthew said Jesus taught about discipleship, not what the author or any other merely human writer thinks discipleship ought to be. Think of the author as a fellow student; Jesus is your teacher. Along the way you see how the discipleship training that Jesus practiced two thousand years ago compares to what goes on in modern American churches today. How do we stack up against the teachings of the Master? If you want to truly be an effective and obedient follower of Christ in America today - you need to read this book.

Meet the Author

M.E. Brines spent the Cold War assembling atomic artillery shells and preparing to unleash the Apocalypse (and has a medal to prove it.) But when peace broke out, he turned his fevered, paranoid imagination to other pursuits. He spends his spare time scribbling another steampunk romance occult adventure novel, which despite certain rumors absolutely DOES NOT involve time-traveling Nazi vampires! A former member of the British Society for Psychical Research, he is a long-time student of the occult and a committed Christian who sees himself as a modern-day Professor Van Helsing equipping Believers for battle against the occult Principalities and Powers that rule a world in darkness. (Ephesians 6:12) The author of three dozen books, e-books, chapbooks and pamphlets on esoteric subjects such as alien abduction, alien hybrids, astrology, the Bible, biblical prophecy, Christian discipleship, conspiracies, esoteric Nazism, the Falun Gong, Knights Templar, magick, and UFOs, his work has also appeared in Challenge magazine, Weird Tales, The Outer Darkness, Tales of the Talisman, and Empirical magazine. *I'm often asked how I square my Christianity and "messing around" with the occult, as if I'm partial to bestial things with a goat under the amber light of the moon or something. No so. I'm a student, in the same way I used to study Soviet weapons and tactics back when I was a US Army officer. This gives my work a unique perspective no matter what your belief system. I don't judge. I just present the information and let the reader decide.

While in need a a good editor (there are several redundancies in the text and a few sections that appear to be out of order) this is a really good start to the topic of discipeship. The author has a background in the instutional church in North America and a good understanding of the mission of god. I recomend this to anuone who is interested in discipleship in a North American context.
