Shaun Alexander was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks out of the University of Alabama. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, he set NFL and team records in 2005 while leading his team to the Super Bowl. After career changing injuries, Alexander continued to seek after God and today speaks to a variety of audiences, encouraging others to align their lives to God's perfect will.
The Walk examines a progressive pattern of discipleship. Through each of the five stages of Christian maturity, God shapes our lives and guides us through the trials, traps and victories of each stage. Alexander uses Peter as an example of each stage.
I chose and received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review, because God is calling me again to my responsibility to live as a disciple and lead others to do the same. This book provides additional depth to a framework of discipleship with which I am familiar. If you are interested in helping people take their next steps of obedient discipleship The Walk can help you.
The outline and key concepts are as follows:
Part 1: The Unbeliever
Part 2: The Believer
Part 3: The Example
Part 4: The Teacher
Part 5: The Imparter
Part 6: Walking the Walk
I'll be hanging on to this copy for a few more weeks, using it to provide depth to a seminar I'm preparing for Sunday School teachers who are willing to disciple others. After that, I'll be looking for a young man - an athlete who can relate to Shaun's story.
