‘Standing in the great tradition of preachers who were once lawyers, Andrew Randall skilfully unfolds from Scripture ‘the truth . . . and nothing but the truth’ about what it means to be a Christian. Fresh and compelling, shrewd and honest, winsome and reliable, Following Jesus is exactly the kind of book every young Christian should read, while at the same time it offers a wonderful review course for seasoned disciples. Read it on your own, or with others; discuss it in house groups; give it away to help a friend. It should lead you to the clear ‘verdict’–that you want to follow Jesus for the rest of your life!’ — SINCLAIR B. FERGUSON

Book Description

Joy and fruitfulness in faith do not depend on flashes of genius but on getting the basics right most of the time.

Following Jesus focuses attention on the basics of Christian discipleship, and covers the following vitally important themes: faith, the Bible, the church, prayer, the Holy Spirit, holiness, growth in grace, guidance, loving others, parenting children, evangelism, work, stewardship, suffering, and perseverance.

The chapters have been written to help new followers of Jesus lay solid foundations for a healthy and rich Christian life. They also provide a refresher course in what it means to be a disciple for those who have been following Jesus for many years.
