Originally published in 1990, Moody Publishers is reissuing this classic on discipleship.
Sanders' contention is that many people have forgotten what it means to be a Christian.
Being a Christian is not saying a magic prayer that gives us eternal salvation and then living life as usual.
Christ did not commission his apostles to merely save people, but to make them disciples. There is a world of difference between the two. Unless there is a true change of heart, i.e. repentance and working toward the upward call in Christ, saying the magic prayer means absolutely nothing. Yes, we are saved by grace. But our works prove that our conversion was real.
The Christian needs to become more like Jesus day-by-day, and Sanders shows us how. Questions for reflection are included at the end of each chapter, which I found helpful for me, to think about and measure where I might be on the narrow path, and where I can do better.
I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
