Description

Product Description

Is it really possible to live out the Great Commandment? When an expert in the law asked Jesus what the greatest commandment is, Jesus gave a clear and simple answer: "''Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'' The second is this: ''Love your neighbor as yourself.'' There is no commandment greater than these." But what does the Great Commandment look like on the ground, in our day-to-day lives? And can we even come close to living it out? Jesus, Greg Ogden believes, has a simple answer to that too. He writes, "Jesus didn''t follow [the Great Commandment] up by saying, ''I know I''m asking a lot, but do the best you can. I know you''ll never fully approximate this high and lofty goal, but it''s still worth striving for.'' . . . Jesus thinks this is possible." And with Jesus, Ogden has found, it is possible--and essential. In this practical, in-depth handbook, Ogden draws from his years of pastoral experience training and discipling others to help us truly be changed by Christ into people who love God and love others with all that we are. Following the format of his bestselling Discipleship Essentials, each chapter includes:

  • a core truth
  • a memory verse
  • an inductive Bible study
  • a reading on one aspect of the Great Commandment

Thoughtful questions will also help you examine your heart and life and move you to open yourself to God''s transforming work. Above all, Ogden helps you see that the Great Commandment is actually a great invitation to join God in bringing his kingdom to earth. And as you learn to do so, you''ll find that the greatest commandment leads to the greatest life possible.

Review

"The Essential Commandment could be a great resource for the development of a church mission. I foresee immense usefulness in the encouragement of outreach to communities with which all churches are surrounded."

-- Lyn Housen, Insights, November 2012

"In The Essential Commandment, Greg Ogden has once again taken the complex subject of Christian discipleship and made it truly understandable and personally applicable. After reading this book, you will wonder why more authors have not made the Great Commandment of Jesus their central focus. More importantly, you will be grateful that Ogden has, and that he''s given you another essential tool for finding your way and helping others into the deeper life of Christ."

-- Daniel Meyer, senior pastor of Christ Church of Oak Brook and author of Witness Essentials

I decided to purchase this book to go through with my girlfriend, and it has turned out to be a great decision. I have previously read through Greg Ogden''s Discipleship Essentials (which I also recommend), so I knew that this book was going to be pretty good.

The chapters are set up with a theme which leads into a core truth, a memory verse, an inductive bible study portion, and a reading. Everything really goes together well, and it is really a great instrument to be used by yourself, in a small group, or with your significant other.

A Good Textbook, not for Casual Use
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2013
The book is excellent if you want to use it for personal or group study of the Bible and its application to your life. If you want to simply read a book for subsequent discussion in one setting, it doesn''t work well. It''s well written and scholarly.

This is an amazing course, one that is biblical, gets the participants deeply into God''s Word and then provides encouragement for application. Greg Ogden has produced two courses that have made a huge difference in the spiritual growth of our church members; this one and his Discipleship Essentials. His approach is very Reformed, interactive, and stimulating. I highly recommend this for any church that takes the Bible seriously as God''s inspired and authoritative Word to us and the all sufficient rule for faith and life. Greg unpacks scripture in a life-transforming way.
