"Ordinary Radicals is a valuable resource for the Christian wanting to make the most of their life." --Robby Gallaty

How do we live out the gospel in our lives?

What we believe about the gospel determines how we will follow the Great Commission and make disciples. Ordinary Radicals lays bare the roots of the gospel, reinforcing the command and privilege of the Great Commission.

Church leadership must be focused on discipleship. If you have a leadership problem, you have a discipleship problem, and if you have a discipleship problem, you have a Great Commission problem.

Why bother with discipleship? Because the cost of non-discipleship is too great! Living with radical abandonment for God's glory, faithful adherence to His person, and urgent obedience to His ministry is the only way to live a successful, fruitful Christian life. This book offers a step-by-step process for living out the Great Commission to revolutionize the world through the local church.

Review quote

"In an era where there is much confusion or even apathy about discipleship, Jonathan Hayashi gives us a simple and yet powerful explanation of discipleship centered around the person of Jesus. If you are serious about Jesus and being shaped into his image, you should pay attention to this book."

--Micah Fries, Senior Pastor of Brainerd Baptist Church, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Author and Editor, Islam and North America

"Making disciples who make disciples ought to be the normal Christian life, not the life reserved only for "radical" Christians. Jonathan explains that the motivation for disciple making and gives a practical method for it. Ordinary Radicals is a valuable resource for the Christian wanting to make the most of their life."

--Robby Gallaty, Ph.D., Senior Pastor of Long Hollow Baptist Church, Founder of Replicate Ministries

"Ordinary Radicals is a simple, straightforward guide for ordinary people that will equip them to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. A great choice for a new members' class in your church!"

--Timothy Paul Jones, PhD, Professor of Christian Family Ministry, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Jonathan Hayashi will make you think differently about discipleship. His book Ordinary Radicals challenges popular assumptions about what it means to follow Jesus. His basic assertion is that discipleship is not optional. To be a Christian is to be a disciple. If following Christ is important to you, this book will give you a vision of what it means to be an ordinary radical for Jesus."

--Dr. John Koessler, Professor of Applied Theology & Church Ministry, Moody Bible Institute, Author of True Discipleship: The Art of Following Jesus

"If you are looking for a quick and easy program to turn around your church, stop looking; there is no such thing. With biblical clarity and Holy Spirit-fueled pas- sion, Jonathan Hayashi has written a clarion call to church leaders to remind us of our purpose: fulfilling the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. So much of Western church culture claims the name of Christ, yet refuses to follow His pattern of making disciples. Jonathan reminds us that Christians follow Christ and that Christ made disciples who made disciples. I'm a firm believer that belief determines behavior, so if you believe in Jesus, you must obey his command. This book will help you align belief and behavior."

--Dr. Adron Robinson, Pastor of Hillcrest Baptist Church, President of Illinois Baptist State Association (IBSA)

"Trained by some of the most respected disciple-makers, Jonathan Hayashi offers to his readers an articulate distillation of the principles necessary for making disciples while being faithful to the gospel. Ordinary Radicals: A Return to Christ-Centered Discipleship has the potential to be a valuable resource for local churches and many groups in the Christian community."

--Dr. John Yeats, Executive Director, Missouri Baptist Convention, Recording Secretary, Southern Baptist Convention
