Wesleyan Publishing House has developed these free discipleship resources for the local church. These resources are ideal for nurturing spiritual formation church-wide or in small-groups. The Wesleyan Church seeks to support and enable shepherds who have been called to make flocks of disciples, to shepherd them, and lead them into a deeper Christlikeness.

This Shepherding Resource includes: Group Leader’s Guide and Sermon Notes

About the Book

There are very natural (and even supernatural) enemies against God’s design, conspiring from within us and without—our own flesh, our own world and the demonic. Commonly known as sin, this unholy trinity is the mother of all manner of suffering and death. Worse yet, the human struggle with sin can often be compounded by popular misconceptions about it in religion. Authors Chris Bounds and Jim Lo return our minds and hearts to a clear, biblical understanding of the real problem of sin and God’s simple and perfect remedy: transforming a soul into what’s holy.

CHRISTOPHER BOUNDS is an associate professor of religion and philosophy at Wesley Seminary, Indiana Wesleyan University; he also has served eight years as a pastor in Arkansas. He and his wife Tamara have two children.

JIM LO was dean of chapel at Indiana Wesleyan University and founder of World Impact. He has also served as a missionary to Africa.
