'Discipleship on the theological right has come to mean preparation for soul winning, under the direction of parachurch efforts that had discipleship farmed out to them because the local church wasn't really doing it. On the left, discipleship has come to mean some form of social activity or social service, from serving soup lines to political protests to...whatever. The term "discipleship" has currently been ruined so far as any solid psychological and biblical content is concerned.'
Dallas Willard in Michael Horton, The Gospel Commission, p.137.
