Insourcing by Randy Pope



Insourcing by Randy Pope is a call to discipleship. Pope has spent the last forty plus years discipling people with a very specific method. A few years ago, he introduced the idea wholesale to his church so that more folks could participate in the leadership part of what he has been doing. In the process of taking something personal and making it corporate, Pope learned somethings. Insourcing is Pope's lessons learned and his manifesto for how we can become fishers of men.
One of the statements I liked the best in the book was, this is the way we do it, it might not be what's best for you or the best at all, but it works; find your own way that works. Within the book is a fictional account of life on life missional discipleship to show how the leader interacts with the group, as well as how personal worship can be displayed in a group setting.
Pope does a good job of laying out an argument for life on life discipleship. The book refers to the curriculum that his church has helped develop as well has some forms which are included in the book. Within the process, the first step is prayer, four to six months of prayer. So you can see that this is not something if you need instant results. This is for the long haul. I won't know if the book is any good for about a year or so. I'll let you know then.
