Michael J. Wilkins on Discipleship 1

Michael J. Wilkins has published a few books on the topic of discipleship, from the focused and academic…

Michael J. Wilkins, The Concept of Disciple in Matthew’s Gospel As Reflected in the Use of the Term Μαθητής, Supplements to Novum Testamentum LIX (Leiden: E.J. Brill, 1988), republished with an additional chapter as Discipleship in the Ancient World and Matthew’s Gospel (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1995).

… to the bigger and broader overview…

Michael J. Wilkins, Following the Master: Discipleship in the Steps of Jesus (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1992).

… to the more popular and practical…

Michael J. Wilkins, In His Image: Reflecting Christ in Everyday Life (Colorado Springs: NavPress, 1997).

More concise and accessible are a pair of articles he has published, which are available online:

Michael J. Wilkins, ‘Disciple, Discipleship’, in Walter A. Elwell (ed.), Evangelical Dictionary of Theology (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1997).

Michael J. Wilkins, ‘Disciple-Making for Changing Times and Changing Churches’, Enrichment (Winter 2008), 41-46.

I’ll summarise the thrust of each of these in a further two posts.
