Learn the basics of Christian discipleship.

After you invite Christ into your life, then what? The Road to Amazing, part of The Basics Series, answers questions about the essentials of Christian practice. Used as a standalone study, the book provides a suggested course of action that will help you understand who God is and who you are as a child of God. Or if you’re a small-group leader, the book can also be used as a 4-week study. It is designed to stimulate “holy conversation” among members of your class and equip them in the faith so they can be sent out to serve in Jesus’ name. Includes a Leader Guide with everything a group leader needs to plan and facilitate the study along with options for tailoring sessions to the time-frame and style of each group. 

A well-crafted road map to transformation for Christ followers filled with practical lessons and impactful stories that touch the heart and challenge the mind. —Jane Boatwright Wood, President, The Foundation for Evangelism

Through inspirational stories and insightful interpretation of Scripture we are invited to receive God’s grace-filled love and share it with others. —John L. Hopkins, Bishop of the East Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church

Clayton Oliphint and Mary Brook Casad are faithful and fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ who have much to share with others about the basics of Christian practice. I have been blessed and challenged by their personal testimonies in this book. —Zan W. Holmes, Jr., Pastor Emeritus, St. Luke “Community” United Methodist Church
