Real-Life Discipleship: Building Churches That Make Disciples by Jim Putman is a must read for anyone serious about discipleship! It is packed with Biblical, simple, and time-tested strategy on how to help people grow in Christ. I really appreciated Jim’s pastoral style of writing that bleeds through on every page. While handling the truth of God’s word, Jim is sure to pull readers into the story of redemption and call them to take up the mantle of discipleship. After reading hundreds of books I have come to learn that not all books are equal. If you had to read only one book on discipleship (besides the Bible), this is the book. I was blessed, encouraged and even rebuked in areas of my own life while reading this book.
I was first turned on to this resource after reading Avery Willis and Mark Snowden’s book Truth that Sticks (another book well worth a read). After reading that book I commented that more books would be needed, this is one of those books! I am excited an encouraged all at once about the series of books that are coming out of NavPress on the topics of discipleship.
Real-life Discipleship is a clarion call back to a biblical model of discipleship. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in developing a biblical model of discipleship in their church. The retail price is $17.99 (Hardcover), and is available at a discount at Amazon.com for $12.23. I gave it FIVE stars

Wow, that is high praise. You’ve got me interested. Most of my reading is on my iPad. Hopefully they have an ebook version available.
This book really is transformational, Jim Putman has charted out simple and practical (not to mention Biblical) guidelines for discipleship.
