I love Bill’s statement that “most of disciplemaking is sticking with people until they get it.” Bill lives the ways of an alongsider, sticking with people like me, applying the love described in 1 Corinthians 13. Many of us in the Christian life have never experienced an alongsider in our lives. Sometimes we’ve been hurt by being abandoned by others just when we needed them the most. We all need the commitment of an alongsider! This book has given me some tools and principles to help others grow in Christ. It teaches me how to stick with others. I highly recommend The Ways of the Alongsider to you and to your church. The world needs far more alongsiders!
