BOOK REVIEWS

Tell Someone:  You Can Share The Good News
Author:  Greg Laurie
Binding Type:  Hardcover
Publisher:    B&H Publishing
ISBN:  9781433690143
Retail Price:  $12.99
From the Publisher:
Even though pastor and author Greg Laurie is a “gospel-presenting professional,” in this book he tells stories of his own failure and success. The most important things you will find here are biblical principles that you can apply yourself. Taken from the life and witness of Jesus, and tested over Greg’s forty years of ministry, in both one-on-one experiences and large-scale evangelistic arena and stadium events, these ideas are intended to mobilize every person in the church to “Tell Someone” about Jesus Christ.


 

All Authority:  How the Authority of Jesus Upholds the Great Commission
Author: Joey Shaw
Binding Type:  Paperback
Publisher:    B&H Publishing
ISBN:  9781433688249
Retail Price:  $15.99
From the Publisher:
Everybody who follows Jesus will encounter a myriad of “authorities” that directly challenge the authority of Christ. These other “authorities” may be parents, teachers, bosses, presidents, institutions, religions, or ideologies. In order to stay firm in devotion to Jesus, we must believe that He has supreme authority over all. Not partial authority, not most authority—all authority.

On the basis of his authority, he commissioned his people to go and make disciples among every people group on earth. This is an impossible commission if it were not for the promise that he is with them forever. The doctrine of the supreme authority of Christ not only upholds the work of the church, it is the central message that the church preaches. “Jesus is Lord” is good news!

Discipleship That Fits:  The Five Kinds of Relationships God Uses to Help Us Grow
Author: Bobby Harrington & Alex Absalom

Binding Type:  Paperback
Publisher:    Zondervan
ISBN:  9780310522614
Retail Price:  $16.99
From the Publisher:
For far too long, the church has tried to make disciples using a one-size-fits-all approach. Some churches advocate 1-on-1 discipling, others try getting everyone into a small group, while still others training through mission trips or service projects. Yet others focus all their efforts on attracting people to a large group gathering to hear biblical teaching and preaching. But does one size really fit everyone?

Based on careful biblical study and years of experience making disciples in the local church, Bobby Harrington and Alex Absalom have identified five key relationships where discipleship happens in our lives. In each relational context we need to understand how discipleship occurs and we need to set appropriate expectations for each context.

Discipleship That Fits shows you the five key ways discipleship occurs. It looks at how Jesus made disciples and how disciples were formed in the early church. Each of the contexts is necessary at different times and in different ways as a person grows toward maturity in Christ:

  • Public Relationships: The church gathering corporately for worship
  • Social Relationships: Networks of smaller relationships where we engage in mission and live out our faith in community
  • Personal Relationships: Small groups of six to sixteen people where we challenge and encourage one another on a regular basis
  • Transparent Relationships: Close relationships of three to four where we share intimate details of our lives for accountability
  • The Divine Relationship: Our relationship with Jesus Christ where we grow through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit

Filled with examples and stories, Alex and Bobby show you how to develop discipleship practices in each relational context by sharing how Jesus did it, how the early church practiced it, and how churches are discipling people today.
