The Anatomy of a Disciple:

So Many Believers. So Few Disciples.

By Dr. Rick Taylor

Your relationship with Christ doesn't end with accepting Him into your life; it begins there. And it is meant to move you, guide you and lead you throughout your entire life, in every area, until God completes the work in you that He started. He didn't leave you here to figure it out on your own. He is here with you every moment, and He has provided a picture of complete maturity in the life of His Son, Jesus Christ.

With gentle humility and solid, unshakable strength, Rick Taylor shares The Anatomy of a Disciple, and how God has worked in his life and in the lives of those around him. When faced with great tragedy, he chose to cling to God even more, encountering the majestic God of eternal past and future, who is bigger and more powerful than you could ever imagine, and who is working in you to help you become all you were created to be.

Fuzzy or faulty thinking about what it means to be an authentic disciple of Christ obviously complicates the pursuit of spiritual maturity. Dr. Rick Taylor helps us get back on the right path in this fresh, biblically faithful study of the marks of a well-formed follower of Jesus and how we can best cooperate with His Spirit in the transformation of our lives into our Savior's image.

I especially appreciated the author's personal candor as he draws upon his wealth of experience with respect to his own growth and being used as an instrument in helping others mature as well.
