More a manual than a book, Chan’s (Crazy Love) new work is about equipping Christians to grow as disciples, or followers, of Jesus and lead others on the same journey. A lengthy handbook, it details what it means to be a “disciple maker” and to follow Jesus in community in the 21st century. Chan utilizes his popular practical and punchy style to galvanize Christians to study and apply the Bible and to share it with others. The book stands apart from other Bible or discipleship studies by offering a vast store of resources, including videos, reading guides, and other tools, on a Web site (multiplymovement.com) dedicated to the book. Relying not only on the information in the book but also imitation of leaders who are guiding others through this primer on following Jesus, Chan intends for real-life transformation to occur. Nowhere is this clearer than in the questions that conclude sections of the work, which often ask readers how the teaching affects their life. Chan, a rising star in evangelical circles, has added another asset for Christian leaders and teachers to use as they shepherd others in the ways of Jesus. (Nov. 1)
