By Mark E. Powell, John Mark Hicks, and Greg McKinzie
Jesus said, “Go and make disciples.” So, what exactly are we doing?
Western churches face a difficult future marked by numerical decline and evident signs of shrinking cultural influence. But Discipleship in Community wisely asks the church to go back to basics. What does it mean to follow Jesus? What does a life of discipleship look like?
Trusted scholars Mark Powell, John Mark Hicks, and Greg McKinzie invite you to consider how good theology can lead to better, more intentional discipleship. In Discipleship in Community you will learn
• how the language of Trinity matters to everyday disciples;
• how God’s plan and mission is unfolding and how, as disciples, we can participate in that mission;
• how the Bible is more than a book of facts and how it guides us into a relationship with God;
• how baptism and the Lord’s Supper allow us to experience God’s saving power; and
• how local churches can encourage intentional discipleship.
