The life of ministry, of serving God, begins with discipleship. And the deeper the individual goes in his discipleship, the more successful and effective is his ministry.
Blessed is he who lives as a disciple throughout his life, learning every day, from everything, even though he might have already become a teacher to others.
This book then is for everybody, not just those who serve in church.
Whoever wishes to take advantage of this book can do so, and it will guide him to many sources from which he can gain knowledge. Pope Shenouda III
