Synopses & Reviews
As we seek God together we come to know him more deeply. That's the idea behind Spiritual Mentoring
. Spiritual mentoring is as ages-old practice that Keith Anderson and Randy Reese introduce in a way that fits life as we know it today.
Spiritual mentoring is not only for pastors or saints. Mentors are ordinary Christians who are willing to enter into a faith relationship with another person who wants to grow. Likewise, those who are mentored are not seminary candidates but simply followers of Jesus who long for guidance in their spiritual journey.
In this book Anderson and Reese show you how to mentor and be mentored as they introduce, chapter by chapter, the work of a different classical spiritual writer, including:
- Aelred of Rievaulx
- John of the Cross
- Julian of Norwich
- Ignatius of Loyola
- Teresa of Avila
- Madame Jeanne Guyon
These writers offer timeless insights from centuries past, while Anderson and Reese help you put their teaching into practice today to grow closer to Jesus in the company of another believer. If you want to learn how to help younger Christians grow while stretching your own faith, or if you want to tap into the experience of a Christian friend who is farther along the road of faith, this is the book that will get you started.
"There is a sweeping movement of God drawing Christian leaders toward intimacy with God. This book will especially help emerging spiritual mentors to become more proficient as they help others deepen their intimacy with God." J. Robert Clinton, professor of leadership, Fuller Theological Seminary
"Read this excellent book to become a wiser mentor of others, and read it to know what kind of person will help you most to become a more intimate friend of God." James M Houston, former professor and chancellor, Regent College
Spiritual Mentoring provides motivation, principles and plans for getting started and working through a shared adventure of Christian growth.
