Scandrette helps the reader understand that we seldom get spiritual formation right the first time by transparently communicating where they have made mistakes. My response to this material is overwhelmingly positive.
This book makes a significant contribution to the way we understand spiritual formation in the following ways. First, it inextricably links discipleship and action. Scandrette is calling all believers to action. Second, this book is written in a posture that is humble enough for a new believer in Christ to latch onto and yet rich enough to hold the attention of ministry leaders.

My only negative critique is that it could have given a stronger emphasis to the active work of the gospel on behalf of the powerless or those without a voice. In Luke 10, Jesus sends out 72 disciples as missionaries into a Jewish village with instruction on how to spread the good news of the Kingdom.
