Discipling: How to Help Others Follow Jesus (9Marks, Building Healthy Churches)
“Dever reminds readers that discipling is a biblical mandate, motivated by obedience to Christs commandment and love for others, and it is not an effort reserved for a select few. It does not reduce people to projects, but rather it seeks to intentionally develop a relationship with them. It requires time invested in the lives of people who are interested and motivated to follow Jesus. Finally, only truly humble teachers should disciple Jesuss sheep, because when a disciple is fully trained, he will be like his teacher. These emphases and more are contained within this book. Upon reading it, you will most likely recommend it to others. I know I will.”See All

“Here is a church-strengthening book full of down-to-earth advice about the nuts and bolts of discipling. Devers love for Jesus and his people shines throughout, and his firm placement of discipleship within the context and bounds of the local church is vintage Dever ecclesiology. He has a keen eye for pastors, addressing them about their role with warmth and clarity. I was personally challenged by Dever, who himself has a track record of prioritizing discipleship in the midst of all his other responsibilities. If Mark does it, I can do it!”See All

“This book convicts, exhorts, and instructs followers of Christ concerning the call to a life of discipling others. It also offers warm-hearted glimpses of this call being answered in the life of a pastor and his congregation. Mark Dever takes us to the Scriptures and roots us in the church, with particular focus on church leaders and careful attention to all. This makes much sense, but we need to be reminded that the process of discipling others is every believers clear and joyful calling.”See All

“I love reading books written by authors who are zealous about the subjects they write about. I often feel like emulating their example even before I get to the last page of the book. If you know Mark Dever, then you know he is a committed discipler. Discipleship oozes out of him. What drives him and how he disciples others and gets his church members to do the same is what these pages are all about. Prepare yourself for a life-changing experience as you read this book!”See All

“Mark Dever is known for being a faithful, exegetical preacher of Gods Word. But what you may not know is that Mark is an intentional disciple-maker. Whether hes meeting on Saturday with lay leaders over lunch to discuss his application grid for Sundays message or discussing church polity in his study with a group of young interns, Mark emulates what he expects from others. I believe his legacy will not be just on the pages of the books he has penned, but on the hearts of the men hes invested in personally. Dont just read this book. Implement the biblical principles found within.”See All
