As J Oswald points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ--it involves the whole person and lifestyle.

Those with only superficial belief will soon fall away from the faith, but Sanders says a true disciple would rather be presented with a difficult challenge than a soft option. Disciples are charged with the task of training themselves to be godly, because it is their responsibility to remain spiritually fit. Ever-fresh topics in this time-tested volume include:

the disciple's second chance the disciple's ambition the disciple's senior partner the disciple's Olympics the disciple's right the disciple's maturity
