Throughout the Master's Apprentice Teaching Series, Dr. Michael Reilly highlights the depth and breadth of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. The Great Commission mandate includes a process of laying a biblical foundation within our hearts, minds, and lives. The collective body of Christians forms a living organism that is inspired by the indwelling Holy Spirit and the Word of God. When spiritual growth does not occur, when faith is not put into practice in daily life, when the renewal process is hindered, you hurt not only yourself but you also compromise the health of your local church. Dr. Howard Foltz, the president and founder of AIMS (Accelerating International Mission Strategies), states that "The Master's Model struck me with several factors: 1. It is wholly biblical and missiologically accurate. Too many authors today confuse "missional" with a focus only on local churches. Michael's writings speak to that error and provide powerful guidance in how to model the ministry of Jesus, his vision for the world, and his lifestyle. 2. The book is quite practical in emphasis. Michael includes numerous testimonies of the ministry of both he and his wife, Jean. So his writing comes out of the forge of the give-and-take of practical ministry experience. 3. It is highly researched and documented. Michael is an excellent researcher and a capable applicant of other resources and references that expand on his theme of following the model of Jesus. 4. The book is written in a format that can be used for small-group work in churches and Bible schools. There are intermittent exercises throughout the book that help individual readers and small groups understand and apply the biblical principles of the book." The Master's Apprentice Series offers to take us through the mobilization process.
