This book ended up being just what I hoped for--and more. The hoped for part was a thorough walk-through of discipling philosophies and practices. The "and more" were the stories after each practical chapter of those who are engaged in this rich work of rooting men and women in a life with Christ.
The book avoids unnecessary pushes in denominational or doctrinal directions that aren't held by nearly all churches (too often a mark of "next step" or discipling books). And when the authors do push in a certain direction, they offer biblical support and don't use dogmatic language. Of course, Joel Rosenberg is a professional writer alongside being a teach of the Word--he knows what he's doing here.
