The purpose of writing Men's Discipleship Using the Gospel of John and the Effect on Spiritual Well-being is to describe the effects a discipleship curriculum based on the Gospel of John has on Christian men's self-perception of spiritual well-being. The curriculum is centered on Jesus and his discipleship methods as captured in John's Gospel. Discipleship insights on working with contemporary North American men were also incorporated into the curriculum. Christian men perceived they had a higher level of spiritual well-being after experiencing the John Discipleship Curriculum.
