There is a great need in the church today for biblical discipleship. If you have not been taught and led through the basic principles and disciplines of the Christian life, this book is a great place to start.

You may be a parent who wants to know how to disciple your children. You may be a pastor or friend looking for a practical resource as you help others on their spiritual journey. Loving God: A Practical Handbook for Discipleship can equip you to be an effective mentor. Its easy-to-read chapters discuss the following subjects in detail:

  • Finding your purpose
  • Giving it all to God
  • Spending time with God
  • Learning to pray
  • Understanding God’s Word
  • Living in victory
  • Ministering to others
  • Living in community
  • Discerning God’s will

These topics are expounded in each chapter with discussion questions, a summary of the main ideas, practical tools, and recommendations for further reading.


We are well familiar with the Great Commission of Jesus: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV), but what does that look like in our hearts, homes, families, and ministries? How can we be personally discipled, and how can we disciple others? Loving God is a thorough, practical answer to those questions. With the tender heart of a father and friend, Dr. McDill gently leads readers through a journey of discipleship—one you can travel for yourself and then extend to others in your sphere of influence. This book is filled with wisdom, actionable steps, and companion resources. It will deeply affect you the first time you read it, and then you will return to it time and again as a handbook for continuing your own discipleship and leading others into the abundant life of Christ as well. Parents, especially, will find useful and practical discipleship insight here. Loving God is a resource every believer should have!

The Great Commission of Jesus Christ gives all of us who are disciples of Christ the responsibility to go and make disciples of others. We’re to baptize the new disciples, and then, says Jesus, we’re to begin “teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.” Loving God is designed to help one disciple of Jesus teach other disciples about Jesus and about observing all that He commanded. It gives practical, biblical instruction for those wanting to be better followers of Christ as well as for those who want to help these disciples grow in Christlikeness. It can be especially useful for parents looking for resources to instruct their older children and teenagers in the ways of God.
