A Disciple’s Path has transformed countless new members into deeply committed disciples – people who are using their gifts, praying in new ways, worshipping regularly and not only when it’s convenient, giving sacrificially of their financial resources, and seeking to be a witness to Christ’s love and light in the world. I am deeply grateful for this resource and recommend it wholeheartedly. Donna Claycomb Sokol, Pastor of Mount Veron Place United Methodist Church and author of A New Day in the City

A Disciple’s Path is an engaging approach to discipleship from a distinctly Wesleyan perspective. Whether used as an introduction for new members or a renewal course for existing members, the program guides individuals to take the next step in discipleship and become dynamic, engaged followers of Jesus Christ. The study combines a Wesleyan understanding of our growth in God’s love and grace with the time-tested practices of spiritual discipline expressed in the membership vows to uphold the church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. Participants will develop spiritual practices, discover their unique gifts, and become engaged in ministry that brings transformation in their own lives, the lives of others, and the world.

Heitzenrater, Duke University Divinity School “A Disciple’s Path resonates with the spirit of John Wesley, whose guidance applies to fledgling twenty-first century disciples.” —David Brownlee, Lead Pastor, Christ United Methodist Church, Jackson, Mississippi
  • Throw her heart
James Harnish has put together a wonderful resource for people in the Wesleyan-Methodist tradition, especially for United Methodists. Participants will explore:

1) the goal of Christian discipleship
2) the role of grace in discipleship
3) the role of spiritual disciplines in discipleship.

I would summarize Harnish's view this way: Christians grow in love of God and neighbor through intentional use of spiritual disciplines within the context of a Christian community. While the book has some elements of Methodist history, it is NOT primarily a history class but a guide to what John Wesley called "practical divinity," or practical, experiential Christian faith. Harnish focuses on the spiritual disciplines mentioned in the United Methodist membership vow: prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.

I used this with two different adult groups and both appreciated it. This booklet is the basic group companion. The Daily Workbook is for individual use on a daily basis. Participants should be encouraged to use the daily workbook but not required. The daily workbook is a good resource for discussion leaders to garner discussion material.

This was the most Methodist, most theologically accessible, study I've done in our United Methodist Church for some time. I appreciated the author's approach to Wesleyan theology of a "practical divinity" -- a faith that is both believed and lived out. The long-term Methodists in the group appreciated learning something. And the non-Methodists among us gained an appreciation for Wesley's theology.
  • Joony
This is a really excellent resource for learning what it means to be a disciple in the United Methodist tradition. It explores the membership vows of serving the church with prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness and how to dig deeper into a relationship with Jesus through the spiritual disciplines related to each. I will definitely recommend this to United Methodist churches. I would recommend the daily workbook to go with it.
  • Varshav
Very practical and rooted in Methodism. A great tool for membership classes, especially for those unfamiliar with Methodist heritage. Using it for this purpose immediately
  • ZloyGenii
This is one of the best books we've ever used for a New Member Class. We've been using it for 5 years. So much great history of the United Methodist Church in one little book. Highly recommend it!!
  • Malara
This is a good study. James Harnish and Justin Larosa do a great job with this.
  • Gaeuney
This is an easy but appropriately challenging study that is appropriate for small groups and Sunday Schools.
This book has taught me so much, both from independent reading as well as sharing insights with the pastor's class on Sunday afternoons. Wow! I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to understand more about grace, the value of fellowship, and how to establish a more fulfilling and intimate prayer life.
