Ascending Grace

Authored by David Oliver Kueker

How Exactly Does One Make Disciples?

Pastor John Wesley Adam's journey into disciple making begins with this seemingly simple question. Before long he is drawn into a mysterious movement of people working quietly within their own churches, people who are entirely focused on a simple goal: following Jesus and making disciples.

The First Step to Making Disciples: BE ONE.

In this novel Dr. Kueker imagines what a movement for disciple making might be like in our time, rising up within the churches of our century just as the early Christians arose within the religious context of their culture.

ASCENDING GRACE is Book One of the CIRCLES OF GRACE trilogy of novels on disciple making.
