Discipleship is a key concept of the Great Commission yet many Christians do not know how to go about the task of discipleship. In this new landmark work The “Disciple Investing” Life: Helping Others Grow in Their Relationship with Christ, Rod Culbertson, beloved professor of practical theology at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte North Carolina, explores this long yet important process of investing in others lives to train them in the things of God to transform them into disciples. The “Disciple Investing” Life is a book that is highly practical yet grounded in scholarly biblical exposition. Culbertson calls out every Christian to live out their life calling, to live as imitators of Christ by discipling others.
Culbertson uses his decades of experience in discipleship to help a Christian navigate this process. Not only does he explore the makeup and attitude of a discipler but he examines the possible problems and pitfalls that a “Disciple Investor” may encounter as they continue their biblical mandate. Whether you are a new believer, who was wanting to invest in the lives of others, or season saint who is looking to fine-tuned their discipleship skills in either case, The “Disciples Investing” Life, is a book that not only you will want to read once but reread again and again which will enable you to keep finding nuggets of wisdom brought about by a lifetime of discipleship.
This book will not only help you in the future but directly apply to your present daily life so that you may honor and glorify God in your obedience to the Son’s final command, the Great Commission. If you have been discipled, this book lets you take a stroll down memory lane to discover how Christians in your life invested in your spiritual growth and let you plan for the future as you look to invest in the discipleship of others. If you have not this book gives you the blue prints for becoming a “Disciple Investor”. I highly and fully recommend this book to any and all Christians who want to take the next step in discipling those who Christ has placed in your life.
