Mission has struggled with reductionism, unable to hold together all that being a disciple of Jesus means. The 'Great Commission' has often focussed on 'go' and forgotten that the imperative was to 'make disciples'. This has been reduced to either evangelism and church planting or social transformation. These are essential, but they are not the whole. Making disciples needs evangelism, building community in the church, and social transformation through evidence of the coming of the kingdom. The Capetown Commitment recognised this reductionism and included this statement: 'We need intensive efforts to train all God's people in whole-life discipleship, which means to live, think, work, and speak from a biblical worldview and with missional effectiveness in every place or circumstance of daily life and work.' As disciples we seek to bring the Lordship of Christ into every sphere of life: family, social, economic, political and environmental.


Within the scope of the mission of God, discipleship is the centre. It needs to recover that place today in the Church and Mission. This book is an attempt to help us explore what it means to 'make disciples' of all.
