The God who is Love rejoices greatly when His people walk with Him in Truth. This book provides the essentials of the Christian life in a way that is theologically rich and and inspired by the discipleship teachings of past giants of the faith.

It also seeks to help the reader to move out into the world as one sent by God to testify to the joyous grace of the God who is Love.

This The field testing of the book (part of the thesis) demonstrated that 91% of readers were hugely impacted by the book in their motivation to live for God. This engaging and clearly-written discipleship book fills in all the gaps in our theological understanding.
