The Great Omission by Willard is a stellar book on the discipleship crisis as well as the habits required to offset flesh. I find the reading essential and elemental but certainly missing from the disciplship process of most organizations, including ours, whose goal is discipleship.

You're right - that book is a great anthology of Dallas Willard's challenging thoughts on the discipleship "gap" in the Church.

Those interested in joining the broader talk on discipleship and chewing on some real substance should pick the book up!

Previous comments deleted because of dyslexic typing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. The comment should have read....

Another good book for leaders/disciplers to read is the Bible. :)

Sometimes we have to see it in blazing color. My jets have been fueled this week as I read "The Autobiography of George Muller". An ordinary man who become a giant for the Kingdom...discipling many. Muller's constant concern was that those who looked at him felt like "they could never be like George" and they must know that is not true.

As we disciple people through our own growing faith journey our message must be one of God's full provision and partnership for us (2Pet 1:3-4).

A helpful resource is "Discipleship Journal: Helping You Grow in Christ." It's a great magazine whose articles are centered on doing just that--growing in Christ. Each issue is packed with practical material, including a section of small group ideas. Highly recommended.
