This booklet is the second in a series on basic discipleship principles for men.
Becoming a new creature in Christ is just the beginning of our walk with Christ, not the end of it. God wants to do more in our lives than save us for eternity, as wonderful as that will be.

Five key ideas this study helps to provide us are...
