This book is a collection of short reflections on mentoring and discipleship in honor of Scott M. Gibson. Gibson says: ""The missing ingredient in the Church today is discipleship."" This book casts a vision for all believers for what mentoring and discipleship can look like in the local church, in Bible colleges and seminaries, and in Christian friendships. We hope that you will be inspired by Scott M. Gibson's example to be selfless and intentional about mentoring and discipling others. Gibson desires to see a multiplying effect of true mentorship and discipleship rippling across congregations in North America and around the globe. He has spent his life prioritizing discipleship because he wants to look more and more like his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and he wants the same for others. Read this book and be moved to serve as a mentor and to make disciples. ""Scott Gibson knows biblical preaching, and he is a teacher of teachers. If anyone desires to understand more about homiletics from a scholar and practitioner mentored by the inimitable Haddon Robinson, Scott Gibson is among the handful of today's leading professors and scholars. I trust this book will help many in their public articulation of God's Word with conviction and courage."" --Barry H. Corey, President of Biola University and author of Love Kindness: Discover the Power of a Forgotten Christian Virtue ""It was my joy as President of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary to observe first-hand the work of Dr. Scott Gibson as teacher and mentor of homiletical skills for those preparing for ministry of the Word of God in his church worldwide. This volume is a good proof and sample of that work. In each of the chapters the reader will find truth-laden wisdom that speaks to some of the great issues of our day. I heartily commend this wonderful set of chapters to both laypersons who reflect on these same issues and to many who seek the call of our Lord in his vineyard."" --Walter C. Kaiser, Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary ""It is often that some students admire a professor in the classroom. It is less often that they find a friend and mentor during their seminary days. It is even yet more extraordinary to weigh the impact of Dr. Scott Gibson on the lives of so many for so long. Years after leaving the academy they pay tribute to an adult lifetime of mentorship. Firm, fair, faithful, and gracious has been his abiding influence in the lives of so many. Such as this grants him the promised 'abundant entrance.'"" --Joel C. Gregory, Holder of the George W. Truett Endowed Chair of Preaching and Evangelism, George W.
