Overview

What is the Great Commission and what does it entail? While many respond to the call to “make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 28:19), they tend to overlook the call to “[teach] them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:20). In this collection, evangelist Bill Hull shares personal reflections—from the past 30 years in church discipleship—and biblical perspectives on disciple-making.

This collection equips church leaders with a training manual for effective contemporary discipleship. Hull defines what it means to be a Christ-follower and shares the importance of building—or transforming—a disciple-making church. He analyzes the pastor’s role in making disciples, lays out the foundations for growing a disciple’s commitment, and shares both the obstacles and positive changes a disciple-making church will encounter.

This collection will enhance your understanding of discipleship and bring you and your church new and exciting ways to fulfill the Great Commission. All Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “spiritual formation” or “leadership.”

Often there is so much focus in our churches on the first part of Christ’s Great Commission—evangelism—that the second part is omitted. The omission is not the preaching of Christ or the importance of world mission; it is the teaching of others on what it means to be an apprentice of Jesus. The sad result is generations of believers trying to be different from the world and not understanding why they aren’t.

In this update of his groundbreaking book, Bill Hull explains why disciple-making must be the focus of the church and shows us our part in making it happen. With practical examples drawn from vast ministry experience, Hull helps the church deepen and enrich the lives of believers as they learn to truly follow Christ.

Bill Hull’s vision for a disciple-making church has been transformational in my personal life and an inspiration to the leaders of my church. The Disciple-Making Church should be a staple for any pastor or lay leader seeking to build a church that thrives on being and making disciples of Jesus Christ.

—Brian Benson, senior pastor, Chino Valley Community Church, Chino Hills, CA

Bill Hull is one of the most influential thinkers today on discipleship for the church. His own extensive pastoral experience, combined with his long history as a consultant to many churches and denominations worldwide, not only gives him a theoretical foundation but also equips him to give very practical help for the church in this book.

Michael J. Wilkins, distinguished professor of New Testament language and literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

Bill Hull has once again challenged me deeply. With great passion and eloquence he presents the biblical case for disciple-making. This book will make readers pause to examine both their life and their ministry. I heartily recommend it.

—Jim Pearson, former senior pastor, Brookside Church, Fort Wayne, IN

In my pastorates I have used The Disciple-Making Church as a training manual for church leaders. This revision updates and improves what is already one of the finest pieces of work available on disciple-making.

—Byron Morgan, senior pastor, Mountain View Church, Marietta, GA

Bill brings the catalytic combination of inspiration and know-how to disciple-making in the local church. This is still the need of the hour, to return the church to her disciple-making roots. I know of no one who can serve the church better in her call to obey the Great Commission than Bill Hull.

—Sandy Mason, senior pastor, Desert View Bible Church, Phoenix, AZ

Christ commanded the church to make disciples, to produce people who love and obey God, bear fruit, and live with joy. The crisis at the heart of the church is that we often pay lip service to making disciples, but we seldom put much effort behind doing it. For the pastor who is ready to put words into action, The Disciple-Making Pastor offers the inspiration and practical know-how to do so.

Bill Hull shows pastors the obstacles they will face, what disciples really look like, the pastor’s role in producing them, and the practices that lead to positive change. He also offers a six-step coaching process to help new disciples grow in commitment and obedience, and practical ideas to integrate disciple-making into the fabric of the church.

If we are going to see Christians in this country reflect Christ’s values, we need to get back to serious biblical discipleship. The pastor is the key to this effort. Bill Hull’s book is the best work I’ve read on this issue. It is must reading for every pastor and seminary student in our land.

—Ron Jenson, cofounder and emeritus chairman, Future Achievement International

Every decade a few books are written which clearly define the critical issues, masterfully present the biblical truths, and radically challenge traditional approaches. The Disciple-Making Pastor is such a book! . . . I highly recommend it.

Dann Spader, founder and director, Sonlife Ministries

Carefully guides pastors through a reevaluation of their function and priorities so that they can ‘reshape the face of pastoral ministry’ and become disciple-making pastors who ignite the church to action.

—Jim Westgate, executive director, Church Ministries Department, Evangelical Free Church of America

Here is a message men and women aspiring to church leadership need to hear and ponder.

—From the foreword, Robert E. Coleman, distinguished senior professor of discipleship and evangelism, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary

Nothing is more important in a disciple-making book than the quality of the life of the disciple who wrote it. Observing the humility and growth in Bill Hull’s life these past 10 years freed me to recommend this valuable book to you. As he confirms, ‘It is more important to be a disciple than to have a plan to make disciples.’ Don’t miss the Further Reflections sections—they demonstrate a keen perspective on the Christian community today.

—Bruce McNicol, president, Leadership Catalyst

Choose the Life: Exploring a Faith That Embraces Discipleship

“Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ.” —Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Get ready to explore a faith that does not separate salvation from discipleship, but embraces the seamless journey from conversion to transformation.

In Choose the Life, discipleship expert Bill Hull breaks new ground, challenging what we’ve made of the Gospel. He believes that the Great Commission has more to do with spiritual depth than strategies and structures. Jesus is calling us to choose the life of thinking as he thought, living as he lived, loving as he loved, ministering as he ministered, and leading as he led. Anything less is Christ-less Christianity.

Bill Hull’s Choose the Life is a wonderful book for those tired of ho-hum Christianity. He gets right to the heart of what being a disciple of Jesus Christ means. With the drastic drop of the number of evangelicals in the last 10 years, he sounds a wakeup call for the church and addresses some of the reasons for this from both a biblical perspective and his very personal account of God’s work in his own life. This is a book for people looking for challenges, and who want to enlarge their vision to be all that God intended them to be. It is easy to read, filled with practical illustrations and it comes from the depths of his heart and experience.

—Clyde Cook, former president, Biola University

In a fresh new way, Bill challenges us to look again at the mandate to ‘make disciples of all nations.’ His writing is deeply personal and life changing. He doesn’t allow us to relegate the Great Commission to missions or overseas efforts—it is for every believer, every moment of their everyday life. In a fresh way Bill brings this truth home. This book will challenge you, refresh you, and stir the passions of your life to the greatest of all causes—Great Commission living.

Dann Spader, founder and director, Sonlife Ministries

This book is worth the price simply for Bill’s elegant, comprehensive, penetrating five-fold definition of what a disciple is. It offers so much more than that too—resources and inspiration to help churches in the doldrums rediscover their bearings, heave their anchors, and raise their sails to the wind of adventure in ‘the Life.’

—Brian McLaren, activist, author, and speaker

In a churchly culture of many decisions but few disciples, Bill Hull challenges us to exchange ingrained patterns of unfruitful mediocrity for the paradigm of radically following Jesus on the path of transformational discipleship. If faithfully heeded, Choose The Life will revolutionize the people of God.

Bruce Demarest, professor of Christian theology and spiritual formation, Denver Seminary

With great humility and clarity, Bill Hull reminds us that being a Christian and being Christlike are synonymous. Choose the Life pinpoints the missing pieces of contemporary discipleship and delivers a compelling call to become a community of obedient, transparent disciples. Every Christian leader who desires to live a life worthy of replication should read this book.

—Judith Hougen, assistant professor of English, Northwestern College

Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker

When Jesus called his disciples, he embraced fishermen and tax collectors and turned them into some of the most influential men to ever live. Can modern church leaders empower regular people to meet their potential as servants of God?

The standard resource in disciple-making for over 20 years, Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker outlines Christ’s methods in training his 12 disciples and presents a biblical pattern that emulates Christ’s model for reaching the lost. This updated edition includes new insights from the author’s 20 years of helping churches make disciples from ordinary church members.

The closer we get to Jesus, the more effective will be our ministry. That’s why this book deserves attention by anyone serious about making Christian disciples.

—Robert E. Coleman, distinguished senior professor of discipleship and evangelism, Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary

In the last 12 years, I have used this book to return over one thousand US churches and hundreds of church overseas to their disciple-making roots. Next to the Bible, Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker contains the most important concepts ever written to equip local church to effectively make disciples. I cannot urge you strongly enough to read this book and use it to transform your church and your life.

—Bob Gilliam, president, T-Net International, Aurora, CO

So many churches today are experiencing spiritual coronaries because they place all their effort on ‘going to church’ and ‘doing church’ but not ‘being the church.’ Bill Hull shows not only why but how to place discipling at the heart of the church’s cardiovascular system to develop missional communities of faith. I love this book because it puts some spiritual teeth back into why disciple-making is the purpose of the church and the task of any spiritual leader.

—Randall K. Knutson, consultant, Church Resource Ministries

Bill Hull challenges our notions of who makes disciples, how long it takes, the learning process, and the end result. This book wonderfully shows how open and loving relationships were at the core of Jesus’ own disciple-making while he walked this earth, and how they are still key as he makes disciples today. His understanding is a needed voice to hear in doing ministry in the twenty-first century, especially for those who want to reach our nation and the nations.

Alan Andrews, president, US Navigators

Bill Hull’s classic work on discipleship is as relevant today as it was 20 years ago. We want to disciple, but we need a plan, a roadmap, a guide. This is it!

—Jerry E. White, past international president, The Navigators

Bill Hull is one of the most important contemporary voices to challenge the church to stay true to Jesus’ Great Commission. I am delighted that with this twentieth anniversary edition of Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker, Bill’s influence will expand to the next generation of the church. In this book Bill articulates a proven method of equipping leaders who will follow Jesus’ original pattern in preparing the Twelve for their leadership role in the early church. As the church around the world unites to ‘make disciples of all the nations,’ Jesus Christ, Disciplemaker will be an important roadmap that will keep us all true to Jesus’ vision.

Michael J. Wilkins, distinguished professor of New Testament language and literature, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
