Summer reading for Disciple-Makers

Spurgeon said it best, visit many good books, but live in the Bible. Yes. If you're looking for a good book on discipling, try one of these:

The Disciple-Maker's Handbook by Bobby William Harrington and Josh Robert Patrick. Includes:
A simple, clear picture of what it means to be a disciple and to make disciples
A practical model for disciple-making that you could use right away
Seven elements of disciple-making taken from the life of Jesus

4 Chair Discipling by Dann Spader. The chairs are:
Chair 1: Come and See (John 1:39)
Chair 2: Follow Me (John 1:43)
Chair 3: Become a Fisher of Men (Matthew 4:19)?
Chair 4: Go and Bear Fruit (John 15:16)

Contagious Disciple-Making, by David Watson and Paul Watson, a companion to the book Miraculous Movements, featuring methods used in CPM/DMM (Church Planting Movements or Disciple Making Movements).

The Great Omission: Reclaiming Jesus's Essential Teachings on Discipleship by Dallas Willard. As John Ortberg says, There is NO one like Dallas. Finding more of his words is like getting hidden treasure. Read and grow!

And the classic, The Training of the Twelve, A.B Bruce, a free.pdf full of rich insights, nearly 500 pp, passed the test of time.
