Greg and Diana Tillman, hard-working, dedicated missionaries, are contemplating leaving the field because of a lack of solid fruit. As they approach their final six months before furlough, they go on a retreat with their national colleagues to inform them of their concerns and to plan on exit transition. The partners are not convinced that the couple should leave, so the four of them decide to spend the retreat time studying the Bible and praying to see if they can find some answers together. Out of their study comes a theology of evangelism and discipleship that inspires and equips them to continue to pursue their calling. The principles gained from this theology are applicable to anyone wishing to serve God through Biblical evangelism and discipleship.Gaining Ground with Good Soil is a scaled-down version of the Good Soil Evangelism and Discipleship seminar in a narrative format.
