Shane Sanders’s new book, Critical Mass (The Dynamics of Discipleship) ($15.49, paperback, 978-1-62509-438-4; $7.99, e-book, 978-1-62509-439-1) presents a vision for discipleship, a philosophy of ministry, and a discussion of disciple-making concepts and leadership priorities. The author expounds, “My goal is to bring attention to their priority, explain their purpose, and inspire a new movement.”

“I want ordinary Christians to be inspired by their highest purpose in life,” states the author. “I want them to see what it means to be a mature, complete disciple of Jesus, and grasp the critical importance of their role in the ministry of the church to make disciples.”

Of his expertise, the author expresses, “I’ve been involved in discipleship ministries for more than twenty-five years in a variety of contexts. I served for many years with The Navigators, leading collegiate and church discipleship ministries in College Station and Waco, and on the board of Frontier Camp near Crockett. I’ve also served as an elder, deacon, small groups’ leader, and men’s discipleship leader at my churches in Waco and College Station. I’m a guest lecturer in the seminary disciple-making course at Southwestern in Fort Worth. My ministry passions include one-to-one and small group discipleship, men’s leadership development, and speaking opportunities to promote them.”
