The Complete Book of Discipleship: On Being and Making Followers of Christ Reviews

    Bill Hull has written a modern-day classic on what it really means to be a Christian. It's a desperate call for churches, pastors, and all who claim the name of Christ to return to a true, biblical understanding of what it means to follow Christ: personal transformation into the likeness of Christ. He reminds the reader that it's not enough to know about Jesus and his commands, Christians must live out those commands and mature in faith.

    This book lays a foundation for discipleship rather than a program for discipleship. If you are looking for an easy program to follow, this is not the book. However, if you are looking for a good resource to discover how to build a discipleship program for your context, then this is worth the read.

    loved this book about discipleship and all it entails. very practical and well balanced in its advice yet very humble. i would recommend it for anybody thinking of discipling one or a small group or even large group. Should be read by any self respecting Sunday School class.

    After the Bible, this book is a must for all followers of Jesus. It reminds us that non-discipleship Christianity is not Christianity. The Great Commission doesn't give us an option based on our giftedness or lack thereof. Discipleship is God's top priority. Out of the 5 competencies of disciples, we seem to do well in (1) learning Jesus' words, (2) learning Jesus' way of ministry, (3) imitating Jesus' life and character, but often fall short in (4) SUBMITTING to a teacher who teaches him or her how to follow Jesus (we tend to pick and choose what we want to follow) and (5) FINDING and teaching other disciples for Jesus. A nice part about the book is looking that the history of the church from the early bishops, to catholicism, to reactive monks who later were asked to run the church, how art became the illiterate man's Bible in the Middle Ages, the re-emergence of literacy which empowered the Reformation and individual devotion, to the example of self-denial in Bonhoeffer and his powerful quotes, like "Faith is only real in obedience."It is very difficult to encapsulate all the treasures in this book. You just have to experience it for yourself! One point is DON'T "fall into the trap of endlessly waiting for a 'call from God' before we go to the world and make disciples. We've already been called!"

    Bill Hull writes a well informed, well written book on discipleship. The title is a bit ostentatious. "The Complete Book of Discipleship" makes a claim that just can't be lived up to in a 340 page book. That said, it's a decent book on discipleship. He links our modern-day views of discipleship to the ancients and how they handled following Christ.I would suggest that this book is a launching pad for discipleship, but it is not exhaustive as the title suggests.

    I found this book on disciples and discipleship to be well balanced. The author provided much information both historical and practical. His personal insights were very relevant to what is happening in today's churches. As well he provides a list of useful books at the end of each chapter. I believe this book is a worthwhile addition to the library of anyone who is committed to growing as a disciple of Jesus.

    I really appriciated the Table of Contents. It nicely lays out the key sections of the book. This is a good read, but also a resource that can be gleaned for chapter specific content. Very worthwhile when planning and implementing a discipleship program or looking for ways to personally improve your dicsipleship.

    This book is biblical, practical, and challenging. It reminded me that discipleship should be our priority. Hull writes is a way that anybody can understand but it comes from years of experience and research.

    Very good resource on discipleshipMr. Hull does an excellent job in covering the various topics on discipleship, providing good depth, suggestions for further study, and most importantly, focused on following the way our Master taught us to Mae disciples.

    Overall a helpful book. I found it to be a little hard to follow logically (just seemed disorganized). Also felt imprecise at times. He just made a lot of "always" and "never" statements that seemed unfounded. Gave a little too much credit to aberrant theologians and practitioners.

    The reason why I liked this book isn't for showing me how to be a disciple. I liked it for the spiritual side, the day to day examples that makes me a better human being each day. I still keep this book in my collection because I know I can dig good spiritual inspirations when I will need it.

    So far so good... if you want to make disciples this will guide you. If you don't want to make disciples you might start by reading the bible. If you agree with that and still don't want to make disciples you should meet a friend of mine named Jesus.

    This was a fine book, and it was so practical that I want to recommend it to my pastor.

    Some excellent insights on what discipleship entails but it loses impact towards the end.

    This was one of the most practical books on discipleship I have read. Not only did it provide the historical context o where discipleship started buy how this applies to us today.
