Review: This book is part of the 9 Mark’s Building Healthy Churches series. In it Dever explores discipleship: what it is, where we should do it and how we should disciple. Dever’s working definition for discipleship is: “helping others follow Jesus.” It involves teaching, correcting, modelling, mutual love and humility. Discipleship should generally be carried out within the context of the local church (i.e. church members serving each other): "We read and speak the Word to each other. We spend time with each other. We pray for our elders and one another. We love. We give. We attend the weekly gathering prayerfully and with anticipation. We come prepared. We plow up our hearts beforehand, ready to receive God’s Word. We follow the example of our leaders who show us how to follow Christ ourselves. We submit to the wise leadership of the elders unless they are leading us in the wrong direction. We respect the stewardship the congregation has of us. We counsel and encourage and warn one another." (pp. 66-67). All this is good and helpful, but the book really comes alive in the final section (which I felt could have been longer) – how should we disciple? First, we need to chose someone to disciple. Second, we want to help them understand more, but also to help them live better (truth leading to godliness). Third, this will be costly (it’ll take time, effort, prayer and love). The final chapter applies these principles to the issue of raising up new leaders for the church. Jonathan Leeman (who has served with Dever for over ten years) writes a conclusion to the book trying to show how Dever lives out discipleship. He suggests there are two key aspects in Dever’s life: exercising authority and giving away authority (p 105). Dever exercises authority in taking control and making decisions as the senior pastor. But he also gives authority away by creating opportunities to teach, giving younger teachers the opportunity to make mistakes, letting others take their own initiative – this gives others the opportunity to grow and develop. Overall, this is a very clear, short, but helpful introduction to discipleship – recommended.

    Description: How can churches become centres for empowering parents to raise God-connected children? How can we transform the lives of parents, carers, grandparents and church communities, and the way generations of children are raised? While it is parents who are on the front line of discipling their children, God has placed us as the church to journey alongside them, nurturing and equipping them and cheering them on. This book will help church leaders and volunteers to grow in the skills needed to make our churches places that empower families. It explores how to help parents over the major obstacles that hinder them from proactively discipling their children, and looks at practical ways to lay the foundations of a church culture where parenting for faith can flourish.
