Discipleship: 40 Days of Discipleship: The Third 40 Days


This is the third volume in our series for church leaders who want to continue their theo­logical education with free resources from the GCI website. Some articles are long, and some are short, but the average is still about 2500 words per day, which can be read in about 20 minutes.

For a PDF of all articles in one document, click here. You can buy a paperback copy on Amazon for $6.73. In the U.S., spiralbound copies can be obtained from thebookpatch.com for $11.85.

On each of the major topics, much more could be said, and we often have additional resources on our website. For example, we have more than 100 articles about different chapters in the Bible, numerous articles on church history, prayer, missions, and other topics. Many of the website resources have been compiled into books, and are available either as PDF files, or as printed books, on Amazon.com. We list those titles at the end.
