The point of good theology isn’t to help smart people get smarter.

The point is to fuel disciple making.

If you have picked up one of our 12 core Real Life Theology books, you will personally grow from the content. But the point of the books is to use the content to disciple people.

So, if you’ve got a Real Life Theology book, what are you, the reader, to do next? The answer is simple: Get what you have learned into the hands of everyday people. Disciple people in God’s grand story. Disciple them in what the gospel is precisely. Disciple them in how to be born again. Disciple them in knowing the truth about God and following his Word. Disciple them in the essential elements of the faith. Disciple them in how to live a faithful, eternally secure faith. Disciple them in what it looks like to be filled, empowered, and led by the Holy Spirit. Disciple them in countercultural living for Jesus’ kingdom life. Disciple them in preparing for the end. Disciple them to disciple others.
