T4T on Kindle
Since its publication earlier this year, Steve Smith with Ying Kai's T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution has spread rapidly to churches, mission agencies and thousands of individuals across the U.S. and around the world. One repeated request to the publisher, WIGTake Resources, has been: "Can you make the book available on Kindle?"
It's happened! WIGTake Resources, has just uploaded T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution to the Amazon Kindle store!
If you have friends or colleagues serving in restricted access countries, please pass on this important announcement to them. Many of them have expressed a desire to learn about and implement T4T, but have been awaiting the delivery of the book in Kindle e-book format.
If you don't yet know about T4T (Training for Trainers) that is at the heart of 1.7 million baptisms and more than 150,000 new church starts, click here to read what others are saying about T4T.
Arabic Language CPM Resources!
August found me in traveling several hundred miles through upper and lower Egypt. I met some wonderful Christian brothers and sisters who are vibrant evidence of 2,000 years of Christian history in this ancient land.
As I shared CPM best practices, my Egyptian translators raced to translate my PowerPoint slides into Arabic. I now want to bounce these back to Arabic-language Christians in Egypt and across the more than 20 nations where Arabic is widely used.
May God multiply His kingdom across the Arabic-speaking world with:

On the Anniversary of 9/11
How will you remember the horrific events of 9/11? A tempting, and all-too-human response, is to harbor the outrage and resentment that naturally follows such an insidious assault. Following this natural response of "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth" the whole world will soon be blind and toothless. Jesus offered a different response, "bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you" (Luke 6:28).
Our friends at the Zwemer Institute invite us to do just that, in this compelling video clip.
What is Discipleship?
Boil it down to its essence and Church Planting Movements are really about discipleship. For what are churches but communities of believers committed to a lifestyle of "obeying everything Christ has commanded." Too often we miss this powerful insight. Is it possible for us to separate discipleship from knowledge-based curricula and institutional models of discipleship? A few creative disciples from the Four Square community of faith show us what is possible.
