A lot of Christian men – and small groups of men – feel stuck. They have a sincere desire to grow but feel confused about what to do next. The Way Forward is a road–map for men who want to cut through the noise and distraction of the 21st century and take definite steps toward spiritual maturity. This book follows the simple format of problem, solution, and plan. Men who read it will walk away with both a clear diagnosis for why they feel stuck and a practical action plan for moving forward.

There are multiple resources on discipleship, but Joe Barnard, in The Way Forward, offers a simple ‘survival guide’ for men who know Jesus and want to take the next step in their spiritual journeys. This short and practical guidebook addresses problems men encounter (e.g., exhaustion, frustration, distraction) and offers meaningful and attainable solutions. These solutions are coupled with action plans that pave clear pathways to genuine growth in Christ.

Ken Boa, President, Reflections Ministries & author of several books including ‘Conformed to His Image’ and ‘Life in the Presence of God’

Jesus calls His followers to be disciples who make disciples. Men and women face similar and distinct challenges in obeying Christ’s command. The Way Forward provides a fresh look at the obstacles and opportunities men face as they seek to be built up into the image of Christ.
