We may have heard and even spoken statements like:
• We are called to make disciples, not just converts.
• We are called to make disciples who make disciples.
These statements seem thoroughly biblical. Their intent is clear and motivational. Yet the practical reality is often more difficult, and the results can be discouraging. Is something wrong? Should we simply press on with increased intensity, or should we pause to reconsider? Have we got it right? Are there some false assumptions in our thinking that are getting in the way? What does the Bible really teach on the matter?
This book seeks to rethink the whole subject of making disciples. Although it operates from an insider’s perspective, Against The Tide
seeks to review practices, to question assumptions and to build from the Scriptures. You may find the results surprising. All those who are called to make disciples will find that this book has something important to say. Are you ready for the challenge?
