    1. Finally got through this one which I have been working on in my triad for about a year and a half. It definitely got better near the end which redeemed it some because some of the earlier chapters were downright bad. This book is essentially a catechism for a new believer designed for people meeting in small groups of 3 or so. Why it doesn't call itself a catechism or draw any wisdom from any christian thinker before C.S. Lewis (I mean despite being insufferably modern and Protestant for me, it [...]

    2. Greg Ogden has done a good job with this book. It is for small group study about discipling. It is set up in a similar manner to a Sunday School quarterly, which I think is acceptable since Sunday School would be one of the target markets for the text.The book itself is slightly oversized. The cover artwork is attractive, the text font is easy to read, and the pages have plenty of white space for a nice aesthetic for the interior. The book lacks an index. This might not be a major issue for smal [...]

    3. This looks promising as a tool for "catechizing" new believers in a relational small-group (author recommends triads) setting. It can also serve to give older believers the training and confidence to repeat the process with others. I plan to field test it with 2 or 3 other men in the coming months. In our congregation, we see a book like this as "training wheels" to be used in the development of a culture in which multiplying discipleship happens spontaneously and continuously.

    4. Like Peace’s Holy Conversations, Ogden’s Discipleship Essentials aims to supply readers to a structured discipleship model. In his own words, Ogden wrote the book to address low Christian expectation and to “…recalibrate where we set the bar of discipleship.” Discipleship Essentials looks and feels like a workbook, and is designed to be a tool in the context of groups three to four people large. For too long, argues Ogden, the church has settled in discipleship through program. This wo [...]

    5. I am sad to say this book doesn't really seem to approach discipleship as I had hoped after reading his book Transforming Discipleship. I was expecting something much more action based -- as with Jesus' teachings -- but this book didn't deliver. It seems like it runs off the premise that "making a disciple" is about learning things. Jesus said it was about becoming, which encompasses both belief and practice. I know its hard to incorporate that into a book, but I can conceptualize something that [...]

    6. If I had one bone to pick with this book it would be word choice, especially in regards to some of the questions. Within the group I worked on this book with, there was often much confusion about what the questions were really asking as some of the phrasing just wasn't that clear. Also, sometimes the poor word choice would lead to confusion about theological issues. Poor word choice also caused many theological issues to just come out wrong and contrary to what we knew to be true. It may be toug [...]

    7. I am going through my 3rd class with this book. GOD called me to disciple about 3 years ago, I researched different books and curriculum and this one fit the best. Yes it is a 25 week commitment, but didn't JESUS spent 3 years pouring his life into His Disciples? So 25 weeks isn't that bad. Very educational, Each time I learn something different about myself and my disciple brothers. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is "Serious" about being a disciple for Christ. Count the cost, this [...]

    8. Way too prescriptive. If a to-do list is what you're hoping for, you'll find it within these pages. Hoping they just made a poor editing choice and that Section Two will a vast improvement over Section One Maybe they thought an up front to-do list of basics would lay a foundation.I'll let you know.Nope. No improvement. We abandoned ship early in Section 2. Too many good books and studies out there to linger any longer in this one.

    9. I find this to be a great study for a more mature believer to guide a new or immature believer through. This book is all about what one needs to KNOW about being a follower of Christ. There are constant challenges to live a life that reflects Christ. Very good one-on-one and small group discipleship material. Discussing material with other Christ-followers will greatly enhance the experience of this study guide.

    10. This book definitely challenged me on a weekly basis with my ladies Bible study group! The memory versus kept me on my toes and each chapter lead to a lot of discussion! I am glad we did this study but I am hoping our next book is a little easier!!

    11. I really enjoyed this book. The chapters are short and well written, packed with information to help us grow in spiritual maturity, and a guide to help us lead others in discipleship. I underlined a lot of this book!

    12. Great Devotional that I went through with my spiritual mentor at church. There were 26 chapters and although some were better than others, I really believe people of all different walks and faiths can get benefit from going through this book with another person or a group.

    13. I just finished leading a small group through this book. It covers the basics of the Christian faith very well, and is an excellent discipleship tool. I've used many Bible study resources, and this one is second only to Experiencing God. Highly recommended.

    14. Some good ideas, but tied to the idea that good doctrinal beliefs make good disciples. This is an inadequate view and thus an inadequate model for disciple making. There is no emphasis on right action, or the means of grace to that right action. For this reason I cannot recommend this book.

    15. I think this is a useful book for small groups. There's a lot of content, but it covers all the key topics in a thoughtful way. I used it with a group of 3 guys recently embracing faith.

    16. Pretty good discipliship book & study. Most discipleship books will be as profitable as we make them. If one puts in the time & effort you will see results.
