This could be you...

Three years ago this month, we launched a special, limited "Pre-release friend edition" of The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus book—especially for our friends who track with us via this blog and the Cadre Missionaries website
 
This post is celebrating God's goodness with our friends—like YOU. If you don't see yourself and your friends/family in any of these pics below, you can change that. All you have to do is send me a pic of you sharing The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus book with your friends/family—and I'll add it to this post.

And BTW, I really appreciate this endorsement:
“The reason why we study the history of the New Testament, after all, is that Jesus and his first followers constitute the basis for normative Christianity.”
—N.T. Wright

Okay, N.T. Wright was exactly referring to The Disicplemaking Genius of Jesus book, but nonetheless his remarks above are exactly why we released this book three-years ago! (Yeah, N.T. doesn't even know of our existence. But Jesus does! N.T., if you're reading this, I couldn't have said it better. You should consider writing some books. : )

On the third anniversary of our book, The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus, we wanted to share some of the pictures and notes we've received. Enjoy. And to God be the glory!

"I've read dozens of discipleship books, used lots of programs and manuals, studied with lots of different people as a part of my efforts to obey Jesus and make disciples. But few of these paid off in producing disciples who then make disciples. The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus gives me a simple, reproducible, easily-explainable way too show someone how to do what Jesus did with someone else. Saying that I recommend the book seems like an understatement. It has been transformative in my life and in the life of several members of our church family. If you take the time to read this, understand it, put it into practice, you'll succeed in making disciples like Jesus did. And what is better than that?" —Pastor Joe Horn, Chillicothe Bible Church, IL

"The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus, written by my friend, Bill Allison, is probably one of the simplest, clearest, and most accessible descriptions of disciplemaking I dare you to grab a friend or two and read this together!" —Shane Stacey, former National Director of Student Ministries, Evangelical Free Church of America, former Adult Equipping Pastor, Hosanna Church, Lakeville, MN, currently serving with Future Church Company

"We had to order more of The Disciplemaking Genius of Jesus books. We're going through the book as a staff and I have begun encouraging them to think about who they are going to go through the book with next. I am also going through the book with a pastor of a church and he wants 5 books to go through with his leadership team when we are done.

I am also giving them out to ministry leaders who oversee training for pastors around the country to see if it is something they would like to promote. I am a part of a group called the Rural Matters Institute at the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and I gave one to the director last week at a conference in KS.

Thank you for writing such a good disciplemaking book."
