The Heart of a Disciple

Discipleship is a great adventure, but at times we all need to nourish or rejuvenate our spirit. The Heart of a Disciple aims to help uncover the grace that keeps us moving forward in ministry and faith, even as the fire that first burned might become faint. Reflection, discussion prompts, and prayers invite pastoral leaders, faith-sharing groups, or solitary travelers to a renewed life and spirit.


"This is much more than a book about discipleship. It attends to the disciple's life and skillfully provides us with renewal in ways I have not seen before. Restorative. Real."
—Dr. Mike Carotta, author of Teaching for Discipleship

"A trail guide for the spiritual life. Bob's reflections and questions invite you to prayerfully ponder life and ministry, journeying deeper into God's grace."
—Katie Zeigler, coordinator of adult faith formation, Office of Religious Education, Archdiocese of Los Angeles

"Bob has produced a gift for ministry leaders. It is a wonderful tool for spiritual renewal that can be used personally or with a small group."
—Marilyn Santos, Secretariat of Evangelization and Catechesis, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
