Despite the fact that the Great Commission is one of the most familiar passages in Scripture, statistics show that most Christians go their entire lives without ever purposefully making a single disciple, relying instead on churches to do the job through sermons and programming. But how does that fit with what Jesus intended?
Go Make Disciples looks through the Gospels to examine precisely what Jesus meant when He instructed His followers to "make disciples of all nations" (Matt. 28:19). His methods are divided into five different categories. This book explores each one and provides ideas for how we might apply them to our lives today. Go Make Disciples is straightforward, conversational, easy to read—and essential for the believer who wants to truly follow Christ and be obedient to the Great Commission!
What Readers Are Saying About Go Make Disciples
"I must admit, the easy-going, conversational style of the writing took a while for me to get used to. As a minister and theologian, I am accustomed to serious, non-fiction books being written in a serious, non-fiction style. As I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review, I was dreading early on what I would say since the presentation was so far outside my 'box'. Then as I read further I started to realize, the INFORMATION in this book is dead on and very practical. Additionally, the conversational style may be just what is needed to reach more Christians with the information of how to make disciples…Jesus commanded it. He and the apostles modeled it. Now Brad Francis helps you see in a very practical way how to obey the Great Commission and DO IT!"

"Brad's conversational style will make you feel like you are discussing discipleship over a cup of coffee. Whether you have been actively discipling others for years or you are just beginning to take seriously the Great Commission Brad offers helpful insight that can change the way you view and do discipleship. What makes his insights so helpful? The fact that he is not trying to offer some new, creative, fool-proof way to disciple someone, but instead he offers insights from the life, ministry and teaching of the One who called us to make disciples. Who better to trust on the how to's of discipleship than the one who commanded us to do it? If you pick this book up, though, you better be ready for more than just reading about discipleship; you better be ready to be challenged to actually go out and make disciples."
- Amazon Customer, Amazon.com review
"This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it to all Christians - because while the Great Commission DOES apply to all of us, many of us don't really understand how to make disciples or how it's different from simply making converts. Brad Francis does a wonderful job of explaining it, using examples straight from the life of Jesus and His interactions with His followers. This book is clear, understandable, and very easy to read, not at all a chore to plow through like some theology books. Francis has a humorous, down-to-earth, conversational writing style, and you will feel as though you are sitting right there with him as you read. I don't know when the last time was that I read a book this theologically sound, about this critical a spiritual issue, that was so interesting and entertaining that it just kept me turning pages. Read Go Make Disciples and prepare to be challenged and inspired!"
