In 1-2-1 Discipleship, Dillon aims to explain what discipleship is and gives practical guidelines for discipling others.

The book contains numerous references to scripture and examples from Dillon's own experience. I was surprised to read a section on learning preferences that I had also come across during a General Professional Training (medical) meeting. It helpfully sets out broad general principles rather than propose any exclusive way.

The book is easy to read and designed with short chapters. There are reflection questions at the end of each chapter that allow the reader opportunity to pause and consider how the material can be applied.

1-2-1 Discipleship outlines how believers can help one another grow to be more like Jesus. Dillon hopoes to pass on some of the things she has learnt to help others get started in discipling. I found the book practical, relevant and would recommend it for those hoping to encourage others to be more like Jesus.

Healthcare professionals are busy already, but the nature of personal discipleship is flexible, making it easier to fit into busy schedules. Meeting one to one with another believer can be mutually encouraging and fulfilling and this book will help you to get started.
