Recommended Book for Discipling New or Renewed Believers

Stephen Smallman has given us a great gift with his new book, The Walk: Steps for New and Renewed Followers of Jesus (P&R, 2009).

It’s now the first resource I’d recommend for disciples wanting to make disciples (which should be all of us). Marked by good theology, a focus on the Bible, and a warm and winsome approach, this “discipleship for dummies” manual is just what all of us need.

Here are a few blurbs:

"This is the fruit of a lifetime of experience in ministry. I recommend this warm, practical, gospel-centered and very useful manual on discipleship."
- Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

"Lots of people have a heart for discipleship, but few have the ability to apply the gospel to a person's spiritual journey (seeker and believer alike) with the compassion and wisdom of Steve Smallman. His heart for God and for people energizes his ministry and this book."
- Ron Lutz, New Life Presbyterian Church, Dresher, PA

"Basic, clear, and biblical throughout. All who read this book will have their knowledge of the gospel deepened, and they will also learn to make better use of the gospel in their pursuit of holiness and ministry to others. May Christ continue to bless his church with books like this!"
- Milton Vincent, Cornerstone Fellowship Bible Church, Riverside, CA

You can read online for free the preface, table of contents, and first chapter.
