Discipleship Isnt a Program, Its a Relationship
Ted is a thirty-four-year-old father of two whos been going to church his whole life. Dallas is a twenty-one-year-old former cocaine addict with a prison record. When they agree to meet regularly for discipleship, they know that chatting once a week in a coffee shop just wont cut it. Restoring an old Triumph Spitfire is more their style.
This is not 12 Steps to Mentoring a Man for Christ or The Blockheads Guide to Discipleship. This is real life. Its the true story of a guy a lot like you and another guy nothing at all like you. It shows how real men can be friends with one another and get closer to Jesus. It isnt easy. It isnt a checklist. If you have a rigid system in place, youre doing it wrong. Its all about living life for others.
The book is less about a car than about the lasting friendship that forms between the men. Despite a few flaws, the authors have put together a triumph. —Publishers Weekly
At the risk of embarrassing these nitty-gritty guys, this is ultimately a story about love—learning to love God when life is hard and to love each other as brothers. I could hardly put the book down, and am very happy to recommend it.
—Justin Taylor; blogger, Between Two Worlds; managing editor, The ESV Study Bible
If you are serious about making disciples who make disciples who make disciples, I recommend this book highly.

With characteristic wit, humor and insight, Ted Kluck tells a profoundly moving story of faith and discipleship. It may be a book about an unusual friendship and a pretty cool car but its ultimately a poignant and welcome reminder of the power of the gospel to change hearts and lives. Tim Ellsworth, author God and in the Whirlwind and coauthor, Pujols: More Than the Game
A great read and one to give the men in your life...the story of their friendship made for compelling and even compulsive reading. —Amy Boucher Pye, Woman Alive Book Club (U.K.)
