Description

Am I ignitable?

A disciple can be forgiven if he does not have great mental ability or physical prowess. But he cannot be excused if he does not have zeal. If his heart is not aflame with a red-hot passion for the Saviour, he stands condemned. After all, Christians are followers of the One who said, “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up” (John. 2:17). Their Saviour was consumed with a passion for God and for his interests. Those who are constrained by the love of Christ will count no sacrifice too great to make for Him.  

“This book is an attempt to highlight some principles of New Testament discipleship. Some of us have seen these principles in the Word for years, but somehow concluded that they were too extreme and impractical for the complicated age in which we live. And so we surrendered to the chill of our spiritual environment. Then we met a group of young believers who set out to demonstrate that the Savior’s terms of discipleship are not only highly practical but that they are the only terms which will ever result in the evangelization of the world.  

“To the extent that these truths are still beyond our own personal experience, we present them as the aspiration of our heart.” ~William MacDonald

    Succinct definition of a Christian from Jesus perspective.
    This book has been written by someone who sincerely wants to spell out what Jesus meant when he said, Unless . . . you cannot be a follower of mine and You cannot be be a follower of mine unless . . . As such it is a profoundly disturbing read. In just a few pages it is a short paperback, Macdonald makes it very clear as to what Jesus requires of a Christian, going on to give live examples of people who have taken Jesus at his word. This book shocked me out of complacency, and was the beginning of a serious seeking after what it means to follow Jesus. I unreservedly recommend it.

    Easy to read, yet extremely complicated to live! GREAT Book
    This book is very simple to read, and yet it captures the very heart of what Christ described to be His disciple. Have you ever heard how the Bible can be read by the earliest of readers, and also by the most profound theologians? I believe that could also be very true of this book. I highly recommend this book to the athiest who is curious in getting a true understanding of who Christ was, and why people follow him… I would also recommend this book to the new Christian who needs to understand exactly what it takes to be a disciple of Christ. Furthermore, I would recommend this book to the person who has been a Christian and follower of Christ for many years… This is a great refreshing book that truly captures the heart of Christ!

    Not for the lightweights
    Typically youll find the first chapter of the book to merely introduce a character or idea, but in True Discipleship, Bill McDonald challenges you. This book was not written for those who only desire to be Christian in name only or who merely attend church because they think its good for them. True Discipleship goes through Biblical commands of Christ on how each one of us ought to live. These are not just ideas, but principles and commands from Christ himself!! Somehow weve chosen to ignore many of these things here in America, but Christ commands transcend all culture. A great book for those who want to be challenged and transformed for Christ.
