Item Description...
Overview
Standing watching the sunrise over the ocean, our senses come alive. We hear the call of seagulls, smell and taste the salt water, and watch the tide drift slowly on shore as we plunge into the deep blue waves. The risk of testing the ocean water from the beach is the way Glover and Lavey illustrate how new disciples are created or destroyed within the church. The authors carefully dissect a new Christian's entry into the "church world" and identify the hazards that cause them to run back to the beach.

Publishers Description
Standing watching the sunrise over the ocean, our senses come alive. We hear the call of seagulls, smell and taste the salt water, and watch the tide drift slowly on shore as we plunge into the deep blue waves. The risk of testing the ocean water from the beach is the way Glover and Lavey illustrate how new disciples are created or destroyed within the church. The authors carefully dissect a new Christian's entry into the "church world" and identify the hazards that cause them to run back to the beach. It was not until Glover stepped away from the church life he once led and saw the efforts from secular eyes, that he discovered the "plague of ineffective disciple making." Each stage of the disciple making process is explored with examples of both successes and failures. Glover and Lavy explain such integral aspects as identifying the primary seeker, questions he or she may ask, finding relationships with influence, barriers, and ministries that can have a positive impact.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Your Spiritual Journey  Jan 5, 2007
I have known Dan Glover for over 10 years. I have watched him develop this idea of the ocean diagram and teach it from when he drew it on a white board. The Lord has worked on his heart and refined his idea and vision. He brought Claudia into his life to put a process in place to implement his vision of the ocean diagram.

I have taught this book with Dan before it was a book, and on my own since I purchased it. This is the most effective method of describing where you are on your Spiritual journey I have seen. You will begin to recognize yourself as you read this book and you will recognize others in your life. But the most important thing you will get out of this book is how to progress to the next step on your journey. As you begin to understand the vision of starting your journey unchurched and ending your journey as a sold out disciple of Jesus Christ, you also understand that there will be ebbs and flows to your journey (just like the waves washing up on a shore). This is not a constant journey in a forward direction. Why do you seem to backslide? What can you do about it? How can you reach others who are on their journey? What ministries will reach you best? Dan and Claudia answer all these questions and more.

This book is becoming a part of our curriculum for Adult Bible Leader development. It is helping our leaders learn how to teach to people with different levels of spiritual maturity. Dan, Claudia, and this book have helped focus my life and I am grateful for that focus.
 
Becoming intentional about Real life transformation  Sep 13, 2006

This is a remarkable book...Glover and Lavy draw a clear and powerful picture that truthfully shows the path people walk as they enter the doors of any church...and how we as believers can help (or hinder) them as they journey into a real life, transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.

We fall into the pattern the Israelites did - wandering around the mountain for 40 years, focusing on anything and everything but the real goal - getting to the promised land...
Jesus promised us a real relationship - living, transformational, powerful at levels the new age faiths can only begin to conceive of...What if we as believers became intentional about getting to this very real Promised Land within our spirits ?

Dan Glover and Claudia Lavy bring a much needed `Big Picture" strategy and intentionality to ministry, with clear 'how to' steps for creating a pathway into deeper levels of personal and corporate spiritual growth. A must read for all who work or volunteer in ministry, or are just on the journey and want the path to be clearer.
