Sincere Christians hold divergent ideas about discipleship. Different approaches focus on steps to follow, mentoring, spiritual disciplines, or an intellectual approach, but do they draw their defi nitions from Scripture’s big picture? Do they draw enough attention to Jesus’ view of discipleship?

By exploring Jesus’ approach to discipleship, Bayer shows how God-perception and self-perception, simultaneously shaped by the gospel, result in reconciled relationships and radical discipleship.

The Explorations in Biblical Theology series addresses the need for quality literature that attracts believing readers to good theology and builds them up in their faith. Each title in the series combines solid content with accessibility and readability—a valuable addition to the library of any college student, thoughtful lay reader, seminarian, or pastor.


“Theology and biblical commentary at its best—rooted in powerful textual insights and rigorously applied to contemporary discipleship. The insights are profound; the grace is sweet.”

—Bryan Chapell, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri

“Bayer’s reflection on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s The Cost of Discipleship is worth the price of the book alone.”

—Scotty Smith, Christ Community Church, Franklin, Tennessee
