East Elmhurst author shares comprehensive biblical reference on Christian discipleship in new book
EAST ELMHURST, N.Y. — Author Pastor Paul Leacock announces the nationwide release of his new book, “The Discipler: Student Workbook,” where he expresses that becoming a follower of Jesus Christ is much more than simply responding to an altar call, praying the sinners’ prayer to be saved, or even joining an assembly.
In “The Discipler,” Leacock explains that Christian discipleship is the God-ordained method of learning and living the truths Jesus taught. Those tenets include believing the gospel of the kingdom, repentance and baptism, the Lordship of Christ and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts, stewardship and the joy of discipling others. All these concepts are introduced and carefully explained in “The Discipler.”
Christian discipleship is a distinct transformative process that significantly alters the life of a believer, helping him or her to grow from doubt and fear to courage and faith, from being an initiate to “discipling” others. Yet too many churches lack a decisive program designed to mature their members in their faith. “The Discipler” answers this need, introducing believers to their lifelong journey of following Jesus with concise, easy to understand language free from denominational dogmas but filled with the fundamentals of the faith.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Leacock has a career that has spanned several disciplines from which he draws in his zeal to disciple others for Christ. He is married to his childhood sweetheart, Lorraine, for 33 years. Leacock is the father of three daughters — Joanna, Samantha and Candace — and the grandfather of Savion and Daniel.
