Essentials for Disciple Makers

Author: Dr. Cass Bensberg, DMin



What Others Are Saying About Grow
“As a pastor, I agree with the Author that the great need in the church today is making disciples
(Matthew 28:19). I have read and studied many books on discipleship. I can honestly say this book is
the best I’ve read. This book equips Pastors/Elders, Deacons, Bible Teachers, Small Group Leaders
and other Christians by giving them a much needed Bible based tool to “make disciples” by helping
born again believers grow into maturity in Christ. The chapters are short and concise giving a wealth
of helpful Biblical insights of the essentials of the faith. Each chapter begins with a Self Assessment
and concludes with a Reflective Questions and Application. The author covers essential doctrines
of the Christian faith in a way that is accessible and engaging. His writing style reinforces learning
and retention. This book goes a long way in equipping Disciple Makers to assist new believers to
become fully devoted followers of Christ. I highly recommend this book giving it the highest rating.

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” are the words of Solomon found in Proverbs
27:17. There is a great need in the body of Christ today for men and women who are mature in
Christ and committed to the Word of God, to invest in the lives of others. When I was a new believer,
such a man came alongside me and helped me to learn what it means to become a follower of Christ
by means of a one-to-one discipleship relationship. Through that relationship, I too became a disciple
maker as disciples are not born, but made. Disciple making has been my passion for nearly forty
years and it is also the passion of my friend Cass Bensberg. GROW, Essentials for Disciple Makers,
is a resource for those desiring to invest in the lives of others. As Solomon points out, anytime two
men or two women sit down with the Scriptures with a track to run on such as GROW, God through
His Holy Spirit does an amazing and miraculous thing. He makes disciples of Jesus Christ fit for the
Kingdom, equipped to rightly divide the Word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). I highly recommend this
process and this book as a means to that end.”

“A.W. Tozer once stated, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most
important thing about us.” Or as author William Temple said, “If your understanding of God is
radically false, then the more devout you are, the worse it will be for you.” Grow schematically lays
out for the reader a concise and complete picture and understanding of who God is and what his
purpose is in the world and in our lives. This book is a tool to helpfully guide followers of Jesus
towards discipleship by painting a Gospel centered portrait of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I am
blessed and fortunate to know the author and have this book at my disposal for my ministry context.”
