I am a firm believer that discipleship is a key ingredient in a believers life. It affirms a strong relationship with what Christianity is all about and prepares one for effective evangelism and function in their respective gifts. DFD is a perfect way to start, as it allows for groups and individuals to examine God's Word and grow in the truth.
I have used the original Design for Discipleship Series for years with new Christians, and I didn't think it could be improved on. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the revised version is even better!! I will use it again and again........ They are well worth the money. DFD #1 is a great way to introduce a new Christian to God, Jesus and the Workings of the Holy Spirit.
I have used the Design for Discipleship as early as the late 70's for mentoring new believers. I recently was asked to mentor a friend that wishes to teach, so we have started with this book, and have completed 3 of the 7, and have noted that there is more application in this revised set, which makes the teaching take hold in your life and in the life of the believer that is being mentored. For new believers, or people that have been in the faith a long time, I highly recommend that you go through this course. I look forward to Tuesday's when we meet, as it is a thrill to go through this courseware.

They are easy to read, not overwhelming in size and very easy to follow.
I have used the previous version of DFD off and on for years. This new version is even better in that it is more thought provoking and better directed in regard to application. I am currently in Book 3 with one person and am starting Book 1 with another. Best discipleship tool I'm aware of.
I have been using this material for many years now. I started using the DFD to develop the youth in my church to have a better understanding in the Word. I started with what is now called the "classic" version. You can download this version directly from navpress if you want, for a nominal cost. The content on the classic version is very answer oriented and focuses more on the biblical answers to the questions asked. This updated version is more focused on the whole on the Christian(s)process. I like both and still use them for various small group settings. I can't recommend this enough. If you are on the fence, let me help you, buy this set. It is Christ honoring and will build you and your group into kinds of kingdom people God desires.
The original books of this series were by far better. It focused more on the foundation, rather than on the emotions, which when building a foundation is irrelevant. Emotions are to come in line with the Word, not the other way around.
I did this study when I was a new Christian. Now, twenty years later, I am encouraging my daughter to complete the study as well. It provides a solid foundation in some key disciplines of the Christian life on which to build.
