Contagious Disciple Making is a book that leaves many people motivated to want to take the Great Commission seriously. I mean, what Christian doesn’t want to be better equipped for bringing people to Christ and seeing them become obedient followers of Jesus? Isn’t that the goal for all of us?
And David & Paul Watson have done an excellent job laying out detailed how-to’s when it comes to engaging our friends, family and neighbors with the message and gospel of Jesus Christ.
There’s no denying that their methods work because of the success they have seen in their lives and their ministry. However that doesn’t mean that their methods will work for everyone.
I am leery of how-to’s and step by step methodology when it comes to the realm of areas that should be guided by the Holy Spirit. Not that there’s anything wrong with their method but it shouldn’t be limited to what has worked for them.
And so while I have agreed with many parts of this book there are some parts I disagree with.
My agreements with this book are agreements that every Christian should hold to – mainly that true disciples make disciples and everything must be rooted in prayer.
But when it comes to things I disagree with, they are mere methods and not doctrines.
Overall this book is a helpful resource in engaging someone to be a disciple maker instead of a pew sitter and this book would be useful for reference when engaging new Christians.
