"Discipleship," says Rowan Williams in this companion to his best-selling Being Christian, "is a state of being. Discipleship is about how we live; not just the decisions we make, not just the things we believe, but a state of being." Having covered baptism, Bible, Eucharist, and prayer in Being Christian, Williams turns his attention in this book to what is required for us to continue following Jesus and growing in faith.

Many churchgoers complain that their churches lack a coherent plan for discipleship and spiritual growth. In turn, many church leaders lament their lack of resources to build and manage effective programs to help people become fully devoted followers of Christ. In Transforming Discipleship Greg Ogden introduces his vision for discipleship, emphasizing that solutions will not be found in large-scale, finely-tuned, resource-heavy programs. Instead, Ogden recovers Jesus' method of accomplishing life change by investing in just a few people at a time. And he shows how discipleship can become a self-replicating process with ongoing impact from generation to generation. Biblical, practical and tremendously effective, Transforming Discipleship provides the insights and philosophy of ministry behind Ogden's earlier work, Discipleship Essentials. Together, these ground-breaking books have the potential to transform how your church transforms the lives of its people.

The Reformation restored the Scriptures to the people, but the job was only halfway finished. Today the church is awakening to the truth that ministry is not just the domain of clergy, but belongs to the entire body of Christ. God is moving her to complete her unfinished business of placing the ministry back in the hands of the people.Unfinished Business has played a pivotal part in helping the church reclaim ministry at the grassroots level. First published in 1990 as The New Reformation, it has become a classic resource for church life. Expanding on and updating the original material with fresh examples and references to eight key important movements, this new edition lays foundations for the church to move from:· Passive to active· Maintenance to mission· Clergy to people of God· Teacher/caregiver to equipping enabler Pointing us back to the church as an organism, not an institution, author Greg Ogden shows how each of us is called to help finish the Reformation’s unfinished business: expressing the priesthood of every believer practically in the church, the world, and all avenues of life.

Senior Adult Discipleship is composed of nine essentials for doing quality Christian education for the senior adult age group. This age group is generally thought of as adults who are age sixty-five and older. Church leaders simply must be led to address this major segment of believers and especially new members now. Churches will soon discover baby boomers are already joining the retirement ranks. The impact of this growth is already being felt in churches and in society. This book will help pastors, church staff members, church lay leaders, and church members to commit themselves to make a difference for Christ through quality discipleship of senior adults. To fail to disciple current and new Christians, including those who are senior adults, is unacceptable in light of the urgency of Jesus in commissioning the early disciples. The senior adult age group is important to the enrichment of this special group and the overall work of Christ in the ministry of local churches. Furthermore, the concern of this book is not just to suggest ways to minister to senior adults. Rather, the book also emphasizes providing resources for leading senior adults themselves to engage in ministry. This book is part of a series that provides the essentials for effective church ministry to all age groups. The titles of the books in this series are as follows: Preschool Christian Education; Children's Christian Education; Youth/Collegiate Christian Education; Adult Christian Education. An additional book, Christian Education Leadership, provides a comprehensive overview of Christian education for all ages.Bernard M. Spooner, Ph.D., general editor, has a lifetime of experience in helping churches, including fifteen years as a local church minister and more than three decades as a seminary and university professor and denominational leader. He served as the first dean of what is now the Graduate School of Ministry of Dallas Baptist University, Dallas, Texas.

2014 Readers' Choice Award Winner "Christians love the Bible, but they often do not know what to do with the Old Testament," writes Westmont College professor Tremper Longman. Further, he points out that it includes many types of writing—history, prophecy, poetry, wisdom and apocalyptic. In this helpful volume he offers different strategies for understanding each of these important types of writing. Jesus made a point to tell his disciples that the whole Old Testament anticipated his coming (see especially Luke 24:25-27, 44-45). And so each session includes a special feature called "Anticipating the New Testament." Through this you will begin to discover the links between the two testaments and gain a fuller sense of our unfolding salvation history. Following the format of the other volumes of the Essenitals series, originally designed by Greg Ogden, author of Discipleship Essentials, each session includes the following elements: a memory verse a Bible study a reading "Anticipating the New Testament" a life application section Designed to work well on your own, with a partner or triad, or in a small group, Old Testament Essentials offers a comprehensive overview that will enrich your knowledge and deepen your faith. "Tremper Longman is for me—and countless others—a treasured 'go-to' resource to uncover the treasures of Old Testament wisdom. This survey will be of huge value to anyone who wants the big picture of the Great Story." —John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?

What is the key to effective leadership?The ability to organize and take charge? The ability to preach and teach? Entrepreneurial skill? A charismatic personality? According to Jesus, none of the above. Jesus is unarguably the greatest leader the world has ever seen. His three years of public ministry in an obscure and troublesome corner of the Roman Empire not only irrevocably changed Roman civilization, but every other civilization that has subsequently emerged. Yet, remarkably, Jesus spoke very little about leadership and even less about how to attain it.Perhaps that is why many of today's corporate-driven churches prefer to draw upon the leadership styles of Moses, David, Nehemiah, or Paul. Denny Gunderson challenges us to think again.This refreshingly candid book draws us to the Master's side. From this vantage point, we observe Jesus through the eyes of people who experienced him firsthand. And through their eyes we discover surprising insights that will challenge us to rethink our leadership stereotypes. This book is part of our Discipleship Essentials series. Pages: 199 (paperback)
