  Without question is Stephen Smallman’s The Walk: Steps for New and Renewed Followers of Jesus. I’ve been casting about for a while looking for that “perfect book” or resource to use with either new Christians, people who’ve been Christians for a while but don’t seem to be growing, or people who are not Christians but are willing to consider the claims of the gospel.   The combination of good instruction, plus accountability within a small group makes for a fertile environment where solid growth can occur. Convinced that the church needs this kind of dynamic to nurture its own and to withstand the influences of a secular culture, Judy makes a strong case for the importance and effectiveness of obeying Christ Reviews: 1.
