Persuasive Writing and Good Company On Any Spiritual Journey ~ Michael Vincent Moore In "Christ's Disciple: How To Finish Strong" Robert expounds the benefits of following into Christ’s footsteps, and as any good Christian knows, the path is narrow, but the rewards are great... Unfortunately many in today’s fast paced and distracted times do not know the repercussions of not following such a higher path, towards love and peace, and overcoming everything within themselves that would block them from a better relationship with the All Mighty. But as long as believers don’t give up the battle, hope remains for better days ahead. Robert’s writing is concise and compelling, with many “Think and Grow” ideas at the end of chapters serving as reminders and action points to undertake, worth a read!

I Found This Book So Appealing ~ Robin Leigh Morgan In trying to be a good Christian woman, I am on a continuous journey of discovering and growing as to who I am in the eyes of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. One of the main reasons I found this book so appealing is that I have unexpectedly already been on the journey to becoming the author's disciple in this book. Anyone who has read my blog will notice quite quickly that I'm definitely not complacent in the type of individual I'm striving to be. In addition, I am also not neglecting the importance of what I am doing in trying to be a good Christian woman. In this book, author Robert Lloyd Russell lays out the framework in becoming a disciple of our Lord; the framework takes the shape of a pyramid, where each level is dependent on the previous one in getting successfully completed before an individual can proceed to each consecutive level until the pinnacle of discipleship gets obtained. The simplistic style of the author's writing makes it an easy to comprehend [this] instructional guidebook [of the process] in becoming a disciple of the Lord instead of merely being a devoted follower. While, after reading this book, I might, in theory, already be a disciple, inwardly, I don't feel if I'm ready actually to be one. For wanting to assist those interested in becoming a disciple in becoming one, I'm happy to [award] the book's author, Mr. Russell, 5 STARS for his endeavor here.

“Easy to Understand” ~ D. Chatley I found this book to be an easy to follow and easy to understand guide to discipleship, which is simply maturing in our Christian walk or spiritual growth. I loved the visual of the pyramid and building blocks to growth. It helped both to understand how each area of growth grows upon one another and helped to keep grounded in process. I also loved how everything taught was scripture based. Good book to explain process of spiritual growth.
