Walking Together: Simple Steps for Discipleship
Trust. Seek. Follow.
That's what it takes to be a disciple. Not hours of programs and weekly meetings to make you "qualified" to be a disciple. Author Ted Doering challenges the idea of daunting discipleship with a new definition: simply trusting, seeking, and following Jesus. Discipleship might not be easy, but it can be simple.
Discover how to be a disciple through your head, heart, and hands. Each chapter focuses on these three things to inspire you to live out discipleship in your community. The Spirit will push you to think in the Word so it can transform your heart and lead your hands outward to live a life filled with His love.
Discipleship isn't a solitary path. This book is best used in a group setting: between you and a friend, your entire family, or even your Bible study group. At the end of each chapter there are "Discipleship in Community" portions to encourage group discussion and exercises to get your group out into the world as followers of Jesus.
What Others Are Saying

If you've been looking for a resource that helps you better follow Jesus, this is the road map for you!
