"If 'the joy of the Lord is our strength,' then one reason for the church's weak, anemic state is its serious lack of joy. The Disciple's Joy demonstrates how 'Where's the JOY?' is the Christian alternative to 'Where's the beef?' or 'Show me the money.' Every chapter has the kind of head — insight and heart — inspiration that we have come to expect from Mike Foss."
— Leonard Sweet, Drew Theological School, George Fox University

"This relevant discipleship book, another gem from the pen of Mike Foss, encourages and helps each of us to turn our pain and set-back experiences into joy and eternal purposes."
— Dale Galloway, Founding Pastor of New Hope Community Church, Portland, Oregon
