Discipleship is one of the key words used in the churches today and there are many initiatives in the mainstream churches to enable people to grow as disciples of Christ. Much of this happens in small groups, yet there has hitherto been very little written about this phenomenon.
Roger Walton seeks to speak from research and theological reflection into the growing small group movement in the churches.In the midst of a cluster of recent 'how to' books on Christian Small Groups this book attempts to set the phenomenon in the broader context of research and theological reflection. It can be conceived as a critical friend to the movement rather than cheering it on, encouraging people to think and engage more deeply with theological, sociological and ecclesiological issues.
Roger L Walton was Director of the Wesley Study Centre, Durham, between 1999-2010 and William Leech Research Fellow at Durham University 2010-11. On 1 September 2011, he took up the post of Chair of the West Yorkshire Methodist District. He is the author of The Reflective Disciple (Epworth 2009, SCM 2012) and Learning for Ministry (Church House Publishing 2005) - a book jointly authored with Steve Croft.
'This is theology earthed in the real experience of life and ministry. Roger Walton's masterful survey of small group discipleship gives much needed and practical insights on how to form disciples in today's church.' -- David Wilkinson
