Some books you read really stretch you. I can't say that about this book however, for the fact is that I felt as if these guys were saying all the things I had been thinking about in my preparation for ministry. Building the kingdom and your church by creating disciples through mentorship. The first few chapters set up their premise and I whole heartly agreed. I felt more validated than I felt like I was learning anything, but then Marshall and Payne put definition to vague notions. They began describing what this might look like in real life. I believe that this vision of the church is biblical and ultimately the best way to connect with people (especially in our post-modern world). The authors do seem to plug their own resource materials somewhat, but they also stress that there is no one way to do this. Highly recommended.
