In "True Discipleship" and its companion guide, Koessler provides a straightforward presentation of the characteristics Jesus laid out for His disciples. As the author offers teaching on the practice of discipleship and the responsibility of being a disciple, readers can be stretched in their thinking and encouraged in their journeys.

- Publisher If we truly believe 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," writes noted author and lifelong disciple 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. In this companion guide to John Koessler's contemplative and practical book, True Discipleship, you'll explore through in-depth study of Scripture passages. You'll find this guide invaluable for your personal Bible study ... and you might find this study so revolutionary that you'll want to share it with fellow believers in a small group setting, too! Book jacket.
