When coworkers or friends watch you in operation, do they see a reflection of Christ? If we truly believe that Jesus Christ is not only the Son of God, but also our Savior and Lord, it is reasonable for others to expect to see proof of our commitment to Him in the way we live. That evidence is what biblically-minded Christians call discipleship. "Discipleship is faith expressed in real life, every day, in every way," says noted author and livelong disciple of John Koessler. But there is more to it than merely watching your language on the loading dock or dropping a few coins in a charity donation box. Discipleship implies a living relationship with the Christ we love, serve, and seek to imitate. For most of us there is room in this relationship for considerable improvement. If improvement is your goal, Koessler will take you on an incredible journey. This contemplative and practical book, along with its separate companion guide, will help you find the told you need to deepen your commitment to Christ. John Koessler (D. Min., Trinity International University; M. Div., Biblical Theology Seminary) is the chairman of the Pastoral Studies Department at Moody Bible Institute. He is the author if Names of Believers, Names of Israel, and God Our Father and the co-author of No Little Places. Dr. Koessler and his wife have two sons and live in Munster, Indiana.
Most of us would answer 'No' when asked if we were like Jesus. How do we become more like Jesus' John Koessler believes the answer is by understanding and developing the marks of a true disciple in our lives. In True Discipleship and the Companion Guide, he provides a straightforward presentation of the characteristics Jesus laid out for His disciples. As he offers teaching on the practice of discipleship and the responsibility of being a disciple, readers will be stretched in their thinking and encouraged in their journey.
John Koessler has written for Discipleship Journal, Leadership, Moody Magazine, Decision, and Christianity Today. He has served as a pastor and currently is chair of the pastoral studies department at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. He is the author of several books including True Discipleship and God Our Father. He holds degrees from Wayne State University, Biblical Theological Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
