Publisher's Summary

Too many discipleship books are written for clean, perfect people who know all the right Sunday school answers. The Imperfect Disciple is for the rest of us - people who screw up, people who are weary, people who are wondering if it's safe to say what they're really thinking.

For the believer who is tired of quasi-spiritual lifehacks being passed off as true, down-and-dirty discipleship, here is a discipleship book that isn't afraid to be honest about the mess we call real life. With incisive wit, warm humor, and moving stories, Jared Wilson shows listeners how the gospel works in them and in their lives when:

  • They can't get their act together
  • They think God is giving them the silent treatment
  • They think church would be better without all the people
  • They're not happy with the person in the mirror
  • And much more

Wilson frees listeners from the self-doubt and even the misplaced self-confidence they may feel as they walk with Jesus down the often difficult road of life. The result is a faith that weathers storms, lifts burdens, and goes forth to make more imperfect disciples.

A Must Read or Listen!

There are so many great things
about this book! I providentially
started listening to this book after experiencing a 'discipleship fail'.
This book contains THE PERFECT MESSAGE for anyone who needs encouragement when their walk
with God had gotten messy, are discouraged, depressed and full of despair. But you don't have to be 'down' to appreciate its wonderful hope-filled content. One can also start it when all is bright with not a cloud in the sky and be blessed by the practical wisdom, insight and tremendous encouragement of the author on the Christian life. I very highly recommend this book to every single Christian no matter where you are on your journey with God!
And the narrator is P-E-R-F-E-C-T!

A refreshing reaquaintance with the gospel.

No punches pulled and the Gospel presented in a way that speaks to the gritty sinful aloofness we all sink to as believers trying to attain a measure of our own righteousness with our worthless currency of effort.

Christ supplies all the righteousness we need and this book is an apt reminder of God's complete answer to our neediness.

Deep thoughts in an easily digestible format

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I was impressed by the depth of the theology and the accessibility of the writing. This is worth multiple listens/reads.

Encouragement for the Everyday Christian

Christian brother or sister, you are loved by the God of the universe. No matter what you do, you are loved. This is the theme of this short, but important book about what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. We don't need to be perfect, ever. We don't need to have it all together, ever. We just need to be repentant and seeking to follow the Lord in our day to day lives.

Consider giving this one a listen if you're feeling discouraged. God will use it to lift you up.

Thanks, Jared, for a lovely little bit of grace reminding.

honest, well written, beautiful, gospel-saturated

Listen to this gospel-saturated book about the grace that is Jesus Christ, and get a clearer and more beautiful picture of how to walk with him through hardship, disillusionment, depression, sinfulness, or the ever present conviction of your own ordinariness. Listen if you think you have it relatively together too because that may be when you need it most. It's a breath of fresh air that avoids wallowing in our imperfections and remaining there, while also calling us to greater and more beautiful faith in the One who is, and was and is to come.

Tired of chasing your tail in a spiritually dead life?

You may find breath in a life of gratitude.

I highly recommend this for you.

Renewing!

I am so thankful for the truth spoken within this book.
I was most convicted about my simply looking instead of seeing Christ and "beholding" him.

Grace for the worst of us

This book doesn’t merely tell us that God Loves us as we are but it explains why God Loves us despite who we are and what he will make us into. Lerv wins

great

The writing pales against the truths it uncovers, and by Earthly standards that's saying something. Put down the televangelists du jour and pick this up.
