I am excited to announce that I have finished my fourth book. Over a month ago, my senior pastor Allen Hickman gave me the assignment of finding a book that we could use in a relational sort of way for discipling new believers in our church (we will assign mentors to each person to walk through the book together). As I looked, I could not find one that fit our taste. Some were too long, some had too many fill-in-the-blanks (felt a little academic), while others did not cover the topics that was desired. So, I decided to write one. Below is the description on Amazon:
“This book was written with the intent of helping new believers establish a basic, Biblical foundation. David wrote, “If the foundations are destroyed, what will the righteous do.” Far too many believers remain clueless regarding the basics of following Christ. This study consists of five modules per week for six weeks (30 total) and is designed to be discussed with a mentor once per week throughout the duration. This text requires the reader to open his or her Bible to read and sometimes write scripture. Each module ends with a prayer guide and space to write questions and/or comments to discuss with mentor. Ultimately the reader will develop the habit of spending personal time with God on a daily basis.”
I believe strongly that this book will be a great tool in helping new believers (as well as anybody who does not feel they have a strong, Biblical foundation) establish a strong foundation so that there is something in place for God to build upon in the future. One of my favorite parts of the book is that it requires you to have a Bible right beside you at all times. Rather than spoon-feed scripture, you have to look it up for yourself. Sometimes you will be asked to read a passage and at other times write. Check it out. Feel free to recommend to your friend, family member, or pastor.
The book is available in Kindle or paper format.
Note: If you are a RLM member and are going to help us disciple people, do not buy the book yet. Pastor Allen will be hosting a meeting soon to train all of us as we prepare to use this book to help new believers get off to a great start in their spiritual journey.
