Full Product Description
Discipleship involves a gentle journey with our Saviour. Its demands will dovetail happily with our carefully crafted plans.
Wrong. Peter Maiden pulls no punches as he looks at what a disciple should look like today. Are we prepared to follow Jesus' example? Lose our lives for his sake? Live counter-culturally in a world that values power, prestige and money, and constantly puts self at the centre?
Of all people, Jesus, the Son of God, has the authority to require this of us. And he's calling us to a relationship, not to a set of rules or a miserable, spartan existence. In fact, it is through losing our lives that we find them, and thereby discover the source of pure joy.
What a pity we set the bar too low.

Readable, practical, comprehensive in its scope, and global in its vision, this book gives us a challenging and winsome call to authentic discipleship. It is rich in both biblical reflection and practical application, but perhaps its most important feature is that it is written by a man who lives what he teaches. - John Risbridger, Minister and Team Leader of Above Bar Church, Southampton; Chair of Keswick Ministries
The best way to grow as a disciple of Jesus is to share your life with an experienced and godly Christian. In Discipleship Matters Peter Maiden offers the next best thing, as he invites you to join him as he describes his walk with God. The result is both engagingly personal and resolutely biblical. It's a delight to read. But beware: it's also an exciting challenge. - Tim Chester, Director of Porterbrook Seminary and a pastor with The Crowded House
'Cutting edge, relevant and a must-read, by someone I have watched and known well over the last forty-five years, and who walks his talk. What a valuable experience to sit at his feet and learn from this great book based on the BOOK of BOOKS.'
- George Verwer, Founder of Operation Mobilisation
