Overview

The Disciple Maker's Handbook: Seven Elements of a Discipleship Lifestyle by Bobby William Harrington, Josh Robert Patrick

Many people believe that discipleship is important, but they need help. In fact, the vast majority of Christians report that they have never been personally discipled by a more mature follower of Jesus. Is it any wonder that they have a difficult time knowing how to disciple others?

If making disciples of Jesus is the greatest cause on earth, how should we equip people to do it? This handbook is a practical guide for how to embrace the discipleship lifestyle – being a disciple of Jesus and how to make other disciples of Jesus. With contributions from pastors and teachers like Francis Chan, Jeff Vanderstelt, Bill Hull, Jim Putman, KP Yohannan, and Robert Coleman, the authors present seven elements that are necessary for disciple making to occur:

  1. Jesus—the original disciple maker and centerpiece of discipleship.
  2. Holy Spirit—fuels the disciple-making process.
  3. Intentionality—making disciples utilizing a strategy and a roadmap.
  4. Relationships—creating a loving, genuine connection with others who trust and follow Jesus.
  5. Bible—using the Word of God as the manual for making disciples.
  6. Journey—forging a traceable growth story from a new birth to spiritual parenthood.
  7. Multiply—reproducing the discipleship process so that the disciple becomes a disciple maker.

Whether you are a parent who wants to disciple your children, a small group leader who wants to disciple those in your group, or a church leader who wants to disciple future leaders, the seven key elements in this handbook form a framework for understanding discipleship that can be applied in countless situations. In addition, there are questions provided in each section to help you think through how to apply the material to your disciple making efforts.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The Disciple Maker’s Handbook is an intentional, transparent, and empowering resource that offers hands-on ways to develop meaningful relationships to grow disciples in the Christian faith. — Amy Alexander, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)

Bobby Harrington and Josh Patrick have written a compelling book on discipleship. I love their emphasis on relationships as the essential matrix of following Jesus and their willingness to challenge old paradigms while forging new ones. Most of all, Bobby and Josh are in the trenches of ministry trying to do this stuff. In this book you won’t find any lofty ideas that haven’t been implemented;
only tried and true practices that will help shape the church to become the radical band of Christ-followers we are called to be. — Preston Sprinkle, Speaker, teacher, and author of Go: Returning Discipleship to the Front Lines of Faith
