Transformational Discipleship

Eric Geiger
Also Available In

A Christian’s desire to grow in faith is beautiful and biblical, best illustrated in Jeremiah 17 where Scripture describes “The man who trusts in the LORD” as being “like a tree planted by water . . . It will not worry in a year of drought or cease producing fruit.”

But how do people really grow? Transformational Discipleship describes the process that brings to life that kind of person described in the Bible. There’s no magic formula or mantra to recite here, but rather a substantive measure of research with churches and individuals who have wholeheartedly answered the call of Jesus to make disciples.

A compilation of their wisdom and stories, it surely guides church leaders and members to practice the intentional efforts needed to foster an entire culture in which people grow in Christian faith.

And they will grow, not because of human research, but by the power of the Word and of the Holy Spirit working through the church—the same way disciples have always been made. When the people of God engage in the mission of God through the Spirit of God, lives are transformed.

A broadly experienced trio of rising church leaders share substantive research on churches and individuals that will help readers foster a culture wherein people intentionally grow in their Christian faith.

The perfect balance of wisdom and Holy Spirit
5 stars By Katelyn, Oct 19 2016
Although not explicitly stated as the intention of this book, when reading it, I was struck by how the authors have found the balance of knowing and trusting that it is the Holy Spirit that transforms lives, with the need for us to be actively pursuing and learning how best to aid people in their growth of spiritual maturity.

The book is very gospel focused and uses a solid Biblical foundation for it's teaching. It also incorporates some of the research the authors have done, about spiritual disciplines and 'how people grow' - (the results of which are mostly unsurprising), but does make a nice change as I have not read many books that do this.

This book does a great job of revealing some of the flaws in discipleship methods churches may be currently using, often as short-cuts or quick fixes, and is a great summary and encouragement of many of the components that go into people growing in their relationship with God.

In reading this, there may not be a lot that is new to you, whilst they discuss what they call the 'transformational sweet-spot' (a combination of the truth being proclaimed by equipped to leaders to people in a 'vulnerable' (humble) posture), there is no program or magic progression of steps to take to cause transformation. However it provides a solid foundation of the theology of discipleship through a thorough discussion of many core biblical attributes
