Go: Returning Discipleship to the Front Lines of Faith, by Preston Sprinkle is a powerful book seeking to help followers of Christ to engage in discipleship. Sprinkle refers to a study by the Barna Group focusing on Discipleship which indicated too many Christians are biblically illiterate and not engaged in growing and serving Christ. He quotes a number of statistics, such as, 52% of church attenders believe the leaders are doing a good job to help them grow, while leaders have a much lower belief in their effectiveness.
Sprinkle spends a great deal of time discussing issues which are wrong, leading to ineffective methods of discipleship. He also gives some ideas about how to overcome some of the barriers.
Go is an easy to read 177 pages. The book flows well, and would be a good book to read.
I received a review copy from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for an open and honest review.
