$10.00 The Upward Call Order!

From the back of the book:
        Jesus said, "Follow Me." Does your discipleship match Jesus' call? What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ today? The Upward Call points to God's Word for the answers. These Bible studies in Christian discipleship lead us to understand God's call, look at common problems true disciples must reckon with, and take up the responsibilities of discipleship.
        The Master's call is not for the slothful or faith of heart. There must be commitment and diligence. "This book is not a three-hour miracle course. It is a growth guide, a discipleship tool. The work is long, sometimes difficult, but always rewarding.
        ". . . If you want real growth, take it slowly. Be honest. Be real. Face the issues. Face yourself. Face the Master. Answering the upward call takes time. It calls for courage. It demands discipline. But our upward walk has a destination. Up there, forever with Him, we will seize the prize, and every difficulty we faced here will seem as nothing!"
        Deeply practical, intensely devotional, The Upward Call challenges, instructs, and encourages serious readers to follow the Master as He beckons us ever upward.
