Jim Putman has put together some of his favorite discipleship books to use as a resource for both personal growth as a disciple, and with the person you are discipling. We want to be disciple makers who are ready to give an answer, defend the faith, and teach our disciples the truth of the Bible.
If you have read my books or posts or listened to my sermons, there should be no doubt in your mind that I believe discipleship begins with and is sustained by relationship. However, disciple makers also must be ready to give an answer, defend the faith, and teach their disciples the truth of the Bible in a world determined to provide a culture that is dramatically different than the one Jesus left for us.
The Bible needs to be our starting point for a resource, and it needs to remain our compass and guide for every step along the way. We live in a time when we have access to unlimited resources for spiritual growth- but we need to be wise in what resource we choose and make sure it is aligned with God’s word. I have put together some resources that I believe are both helpful and aligned with the Bible’s teaching – you won’t know everything when you begin to disciple people, but the following resources are a good starting place.
