The Master Plan of Discipleship


Fleming H. Revell 1987

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Explore the companion volume to Robert Coleman’s best-selling The Master Plan of Evangelism. In The Master Plan of Discipleship, Coleman searches the book of Acts for principles of church growth through evangelism and discipleship. He reveals that while specific procedures of evangelism and discipleship change over the years, the basic pattern of the Great Commission has remained unchanged since the apostolic age. The New Testament church’s principles for ministry are still valid and vital for the church today. Coleman discusses each of these principles in depth and shows you how to apply them—helping you discover a discipling lifestyle from the early church.
