Reviews

  1. Dan

    I wish more people knew about this book. It nails so many issues which are blockages to meaningful disciple-making, in a helpfully succinct and easily understandable way. I hope many people will read it and take its correctives on board.

  2. Henry

    Truly paints the picture of change that must happen in the western church. A really easy to read book that has a simple but profound message.

  3. Lynda W

    what a book…. a must read to all those that just sit on sunday in the pews and do nothing.

  4. Dr. K. E. Patrick

    I have read numerous books about house churches and small group ministry, but have never read such a fantastic book about the basic building block of active, every-member ministry communities.

    Nysewander does an excellent job at putting his finger on the dissatisfying state of today’s Western churches — too many people watching the professionals “do” church while the rest throw money and good wishes toward the activities. Instead, we are all called to get off our back-sides and LIVE not only in daily ministry and communion with others, but build up and grow others to follow behind us, too.

    The eight life-changing values of the sub-title include aiming for a few, doing Jesus’s work together, and guiding people to multiply.

    Although I would have liked some nuts-and-bolts guidance on exactly HOW (though his point in the chapter about going for the kingdom would say that I simply need to follow Jesus, who “showed us the lifestyle of a disciple-maker”), I thought this gave me a well-deserved kick up the backside to do something entirely different from what I see all around me in the dead, cold buildings that are otherwise known as churches.

  5. Earl Wade

    The book was in excellent condition and satisfied my expectations. I recommend this book to anyone who desire to have a simple but clear understanding of what it means to be disciple makers. A clear understanding of the Great Commission will motivate every believer to work while it is still daylight.

Commendations

No More Spectators is a fresh statement of an ancient theme – reproducing the life and mission of Jesus in others. It is written with passion, authority and clarity. While the teachings of Jesus convey a message of truth for the whole world, equally important are the relationships Jesus had with His followers. They model a method of ministry as vital as the message He taught. We cannot separate the life of Jesus from His teachings, just as we cannot separate the incarnation from the cross. All those who want to know and love Jesus intimately, must eventually imitate the way He lived, not just study what He taught. The kingdom of God is advanced through knowing Jesus and leading others to know Him. There is no higher calling on this planet. It is a calling that belongs to every follower of Jesus Christ. No matter what your gift, no matter what your personality, no matter what your position, the words of Jesus to His disciples are the same words that He speaks to you and me today: ‘‘As you are going, teaching and baptizing – make disciples!’’ (Matthew 28:19–20).

“There is no doubt that if a paradigm like this was seriously embraced it would reshape the face of the Evangelical church in the West.”

Ray Mayhew – Author and Speaker

“This excellent book is written out of a desire to see renewal in Christ’s Church, particularly in the West. The author skilfully pinpoints the disease of ‘spectator Christianity ‘and clearly explains how Christ’s intention for the Church is to live in relationship and to become His disciples. If you’re a lay person wanting to know how to live a New Testament lifestyle, read this book. If you’re a pastor wanting to know how to make disciples hat make disciples – rather that simply attracting spectators – you need to read this book. ”

Joel Comiskey. Ph.D. – Author and Speaker
