Product Description

Where have all the disciples gone?

There is a missing force in Christianity today. It's a critical one, and its absence has led to weak believers, disintegrating families, ineffective churches, and a decaying culture. Without it, we lack what we need to fully live as heaven's representatives on earth. 

That missing force is discipleship. In Kingdom Disciples, Tony Evans outlines a simple, actionable definition of discipleship to help the church fulfill its calling. Readers will learn:

  • What a disciple is
  • What a disciple cares about
  • How to be a disciple and make disciples
  • What discipleship looks like in community
  • What the impact of discipleship on the world can be

Kingdom disciples are in short supply, and the result is a legion of powerless Christians attending powerless churches, having a powerless presence in the world. The power, authority, abundance, victory, and impact God has promised will only come about when we understand and align ourselves with His definition of discipleship.

Kingdom Disciples calls believers and churches back to our primary, divinely ordained responsibility to be disciples and make disciples. Only when we take seriously this assignment will the world see heaven at work on earth.

Will you accept the assignment?

 

Kingdom Disciples is useful as base material for a course on discipleship.

  • What an excellent book on discipleship!

    Posted By: gardenof_eve on 12/13/2017

    What an excellent book on discipleship! Whilst looking for a book on discipleship I came across this book by Tony Evans and decided to read it after reading the description-it did not disappoint. I fear discipleship is neglected in the church today. Few churches point their focus in producing true disciples of Christ and making the Great Commission a priority. But discipleship is not only important but a command and a mark of true faith in our lives.

    In "Kingdom Disciples" Dr. Evans addresses discipleship in 3 parts: The Foundation of Kingdom Discipleship, The Formation of Kingdom Discipleship, and The Function of Kingdom Discipleship. He explains what discipleship means and personal application using the Scriptures for examples. Dr. Evans also goes on to explain how a true disciple is to make more disciples and the church's role in discipleship.

    I like this quote from the book:
    "One mark of a person who wants to follow Christ, one absolute necessity for being His disciple, is to be His witness and testimony in all you do."

    I recommend this book for those who are looking to learn what discipleship is all about. Dr. Evans has done a great work in presenting this material in a well- rounded way that covers any question you may have about the topic.

  • Practical and full of great nuggets of truth

    Posted By: marcuspevans on 12/5/2017

    If you've read my reviews before, then you know that I love reading Tony Evans books. They are so practical and full of great nuggets of truth. To be honest, I think I like them because they remind me of one of my favorite books of the Bible, Proverbs. With Proverbs, you can pick it up, turn to any chapter, any verse and find something that will help you. With Tony Evans, you really don't have to read the whole book or even the whole chapter. You can pick up pretty much anything he writes and turn anywhere in the book and find a line or paragraph that will just jump of the page.

    For instance, I randomly picked up this book, opened it up and found this thought: "What too many believers have done is put a portion of their time, talents, and treasures on God's altar and assumed it is enough. It is not. God wants all of you to be given to Him."
    Or how about this one: "True worship is not simply singing songs on Sunday. True worship...is giving yourself to God in your entirety. True worship includes surrender."
    I think a good way to sum up what is found in this book is this quote from the chapter on Family: "A Kingdom disciple is one who surrenders every area of his life to the lordship of Jesus Christ."
    If your looking for a how to transform people's lives in 3 steps, this isn't your book. But if you are looking for a book that will dig down deep into the issues of what truly make a disciple of Jesus, then this is the book for you. It's full of great illustrations, stories, and personal experience. But most of all, it's full of Biblical truth about the fact that being a disciple of Jesus is more than just words, it's about taking up your cross and following Jesus.
    I would like to thank Moody Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. They put out great material that is good for preachers, teachers, and anyone else interested in learning more about God. So go out and buy their stuff. I guarantee that it will help you in your walk with God.

  • It was everything I've come to expect from Dr. Evans and more.

    Posted By: The Merry Momma on 10/31/2017

    I have long been a fan of Dr. Evans and his books. So when an opportunity arose to receive a free copy of his newest book, Kingdom Disciples, in exchange for a review, I jumped at the chance!

    It was everything I've come to expect from Dr. Evans and more. All the books in his Kingdom series (and I've read all but one) are fantastic, and inspire readers to view all of life through a Kingdom lens. This latest book is a practical overview of discipleship, and it teaches what a disciple is, what a disciple should do, and how to make disciples of others. It is highly informative, but also deeply inspiring and even challenging at times.

    In Dr. Evans' typical straight-forward-yet-loving fatherly way, he spoke straight to my heart, his words piercing right through all the selfish, fearful, complacent muck that had built up around it.

    I will warn you, if you're looking for a feel-good book that you can passively consume and walk away from filled with warm tinglies, then this is not the book for you. If, however, you are desiring to deepen your faith and get serious about living out the call of God in your life, then this is an absolute must-read. You will not read this book and want to live life the same self-seeking, self-interested way you've been living it, I can assure you. Rather, you will see that our lives are to be lived for more than just ourselves, and that discipleship is a life that God has called all of his children to embrace.

  • If you are Christian, this book is a “Must read.”

    “Kingdom Disciples, Heaven’s Representatives on Earth” by Dr. Tony Evans, is a weighty work written in a contemporary, easy-to-read format. In his usual personable “Every Man” vernacular, Dr. Evans draws the reader into each chapter by using common scenarios to encourage Christians to thirst for more. More than just MY salvation. Some of us received the free gift of salvation through Christ…and never asked what we are to do next. Dr. Evans urges the reader of “Kingdom Disciples” to walk in the purpose for which we’ve been created, study to show ourselves approved by God, and grow daily into vital workers for our Lord Jesus Christ. In short, to become Disciples. So that we can make other Disciples…just as Christ commanded us (Matt. 28: 18-20). Dr. Evans makes it crystal clear that living as a Disciple will cost us something. We WILL have to bear our personal cross for the cause of Christ. But if doing so means even one person will be freed from the burden of sin, will it be worth it? After reading “Kingdom Disciples”, I was strengthened by the fact that what I do for the cause of Christ actually matters. No Saint is insignificant in God’s Kingdom Program. And Dr. Evans has, by the aid of God’s Holy Spirit, given us a tool in “Kingdom Disciples, Heaven’s Representatives On Earth” that will compel Christians who are thirsty for more than “fire insurance” to make a profound impact in not only our personal lives, but in our homes, our communities, our churches, our schools, our country, and our world. This book is powerful. Thanks, Dr. Evans.
