Friends Out There
There are a lot of "basic Christianity" type of materials out there. I would consider most such materials to be in the categories of "apologetics" or "evangelism," as they seem to be geared toward persuading skeptics of the truths of Christianity. But, let's say someone became a Christian recently, and you (a mature believer) started meeting with him or her regularly to help them grow in faith and obedience. To what do you turn for a structured approach to basic discipleship? What books (or other materials) do you use to help build a new Christian toward maturity? It should be simple enough for someone new to the faith to understand and not feel overwhelmed, and foundational enough to get at the core of the Christian life.
