Smith, Steve. T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution. Monument, CO: WIGTake Resources, 2011.


I have been blessed to receive a review copy of T4T through the generosity of WIGTake and Missions Frontiers Magazine. Let me say at the outset that I was not familiar with WIGTake as a publisher, but I have come to appreciate their focus on spreading the gospel. Their name stands for “What’s It Gonna Take?” from the phrase “What’s it gonna take to reach my people with the gospel?” You can read more about it here.

Although I was not familiar with the publisher, this is a book I have been awaiting for a few years. I first encountered Training for Trainers (T4t) in my time in East Asia. I witnessed fruitful implementations as well as barren, and longed for a fuller explanation and theological support for what had become a trend in the field. T4T: A Discipleship Re-Revolution is that resource.

So, what about the book?

The book is divided into three sections: The Foundations of T4T, The Process of T4T, and The Application of T4T. As you can well imagine, the first section explains the history and development of the movement. The second section explains in greater details how the movement works. Finally, the third section helps church leaders to implement T4T on their own. There are many resources online to give a summary or introduction (pdf), so I will simply provide some brief personal comments and reflection.

Phillips, Richard. The Masculine Mandate. Lake Mary, FL: Reformation Trust, 2010.
175 pages.


My church has been looking for a book to study as a part of our burgeoning Men’s Ministry. This book was one of the suggestions, and Reformation Trust was gracious to provide a copy for this review and our consideration.


The watering-down of gender roles and distinctions has led to a hole in our understanding of masculinity. To fill this hole, books have been written that rely on pop psychology, albeit with a thin theological veneer. Richard Phillips writes in order to provide a book that is both theologically sound and immensely practical and has done a faithful job.
