YOUR Disciple Making eBook: Tentative Title, Contents, and Feedback

I recently launched a collaborative writing project about how to make disciples.

This is the first post in a series of posts that will ultimately be bundled into a free eBook. By publishing content here first, I get the benefit of running it by you, getting your feed-forward, and hopefully avoid heresy 😉

I’d love for you to subscribe to the blog, engage in the conversation, share the content with others, and help make this an extremely helpful resource for you, me, and anyone else who wants to join in making disciples of all nations.

For now, I’d like for you to look through the tentative titles and table of contents below and answer the following questions:

  1. If you were going to read this eBook, is this what you want to learn about making disciples?
  2. In addition to what is included here, what other questions do you have about becoming a bearing more fruit as a disciple maker?
  3. How would you rephrase these titles and subtitles to be more intriguing and creative?

Tentative Titles

There are several ways that you can collaborate on this project, but for now, please just look through the above and let’s think about how to make this eBook a great resource together. Along the way, I want to reward your participation but more about that later. Let’s just say this is going to be fun!

    I think I would be tempted to call it “Just Say Yes!”. Being a disciple of Christ is all about saying “Yes” to God. If we consider discipleship is a process and it is ongoing for our entire lives; Then God is constantly at work on us and in us and we have the freedom to start and stop the process when we want to. Some people say “yes” to salvation and stop there. Some people make make it a little ways through the process and hit pause or stop, when they could say “yes” and keep going. Ultimately, we should be saying “yes Lord” all the way through the process. Yes Lord! I am willing change the way You want me to. Yes Lord! I am willing to go where You want to take me. Yes Lord! I am willing to become what you have designed me to become. Just think what the world would be like if everyone said yes all the way through the process, instead of pause or stop…Just my two cents.

    You are so right christians are constantly building bigger buildings!!! But no one is taking time to build up the people who is needed to worship in theses buildings. DMD is not existing in any of our congregations everybody is so busy in competing on who can sing preach dance or shout the best. Yet leaving out one of the most important commandments Jesus require from all of us.
