    One thought on “Transformational Discipleship: How People Really Grow”

    1. A very practical book to help us think through discipleship issues. It was extremely practical and honest about how biblical transformation takes place in the life of a disciple. It balances truth, posture, and leadership in applying the gospel to every area of our lives. I recommend this book to anyone who is passionate about living the transformed life.

    2. The book starts out really strong. It has a good explanation about why we need transformational discipleship and about how it is lacking in many churches today. Unfortunately, I feel like the author fails to come up with any really solid/compelling/new solution to the problem after they very eloquently explain the problem.

    3. A great book on the findings of research on discipleship and how they apply to the church at large. I read this following a read of Transformational Groups and Simple Church. I appreciated the faithful approach to Scripture especially as the various elements of discipleship were introduced.

    4. A lot of good practical ideas. Appreciated the research that went into this book, giving statistics of Bible reading, attendance, and other "steps of maturity" really help support the ideas. Would be a good book to re-read!

    5. Good read by Eric Geiger and crew. The authors did a great job addressing a unique topic and do so by initially discussing the Gospel as the reason behind all they write in the contents of this book. The Transformational sweet spot: We are given a chart as readers explaining where individuals are developed the most as people. These overlapping circles include; truth, leaders, posture. Truth: Every author explains that truth or information is not sufficient to change people rather it is the appli [...]

    6. We are told by Jesus to make disciples, but what does that mean? The authors present not a model but a framework in which this is done. Based on extensive but barely cited research, they refer to the "transformational sweet spot," the goal of which is not only increased knowledge or conformed behavior, but heart transformation to be more like Jesus. It's about growing in love. How does this happen? When TRUTH is presented by HEALTHY LEADERS to a believer in a VULNERABLE POSTURE. This is the fram [...]

    7. Transformational discipleshipWhen I took this journey about four months ago, the things I was expecting to get from this book is knowledge already have pertaining to discipleship. I will say that most people have a misconception about discipleship thinking we all sit around a campfire singing kum ba yah; however that is not the case. This book allows the Holy Spirit to work in individual lives as they are being transformed by God himself as we work, go to school, and hang out with our friends. T [...]

    8. This is another book that is obviously written by pastors because all of their explanations are round about and long winded. However, when distilled down to its main theme and outline of what is necessary to effectively disciple others, it is a good and relevant book.The authors describe how transformational discipleship best happens at the intersection of truth given by healthy leaders when someone is in a vulnerable position. The chapters expand on each part of that sentence, providing definit [...]

    9. Steven chose this title for our "ministry focus" read of 2014. I deeply appreciated this book. It provided productive linking together of well known scriptural principles for discipleship into a framework which has affirmed, granted clarity, and directed my practice of intentional effort to engage the mission of God for His church through the Spirit's enablement! Because every true believer is called to be a disciple who makes disciple-making disciples, this is a book I would heartily recommend [...]

    10. An excellent challenging book on real discipleship. Built around a Venn diagram, the task of finding the Transformational Sweet Spot is explained biblically and with examples from the ministries of Eric, Michael, and Philip. Church leaders would do well to read, study, and apply the findings that are presented in this well researched work. As is pointed out, Jesus did not call us to build a church, but make disciples.

    11. Thankful for the suggestion from John Oliver to make this a "must read!" Great, practical information on the process of experiencing transformational discipleship. The describes the "Transformational Sweet Spot" as the intersection of truth given by healthy leaders to someone in a vulnerable posture. The book is broken down into 3 sections: Truth, Posture and Leaders. It's an easy read and a definite challenge to the discipleship process!

    12. This book was a good reminder of the catalysts for real discipleship. Nothing was new and nothing was earth shattering for me but was good to be reminded on what our focus should be on because it is easy to lose that focus and put our focus on less essential things.

    13. Great for church leaders or anyone wishing to better understand the dynamics of how christians actually change and begin to bear fruit.

    14. Great book! If you are interested in Biblical discipleship, this is a must read. Some very good concepts and ideas presented. I am currently using some of the material in my classes in prison.

    15. I have no idea what this was about. Having read its predecessors Simple Church and Transformational Churches I was expecting something special.

    16. Excellent book. All church leaders should read it. I am praying about having all of my Sunday School teachers and deacons read it. The book is a great resource for ministry.

    17. Really enjoyed it. Especially the posture of a disciple. I did think the long exegesis of biblical text added unnecessary length to the book though.

    18. Enjoyed this collection of wisdom very much. Looking forward to implementing some of these ideas, particularly the lenses of gospel, identity and discipline as we start our new small group.

    19. The section about the identity lens on being an alien in this world is worth the price of the book-spurring growth in my own life and giving me fuel to disciple those under my care.
