Content

In these pages James M. 
Houston, one of the greatest spiritual mentors of our time, offers a thoughtful and surprising examination of what it means to be a true disciple of Christ.
The Mentored Life is a stirring call to the church to become a community of friends and mentors, following the ultimate Mentor, Jesus Christ, who alone can mentor us into full personhood.
"This challenging essay on being led to maturity in Christ is emphatically a book for chewing.
Your readings, I promise you, will be time well spent, quite probably your most fruitful study time in years."- J.
I.
Packer "The Mentored Life is a penetrating analysis of the psychological and moral failure of contemporary individualism, and a cogent demonstration that personhood demands Christian discipleship.
If Christian people are to bring God into their own lives and the lives of others, it is along the lines presented in this book." - Dallas Willard

  •     Excellent
  •     I am currently pondering the half dozen pages of typed notes I took on this book. As the other reviewer mentioned (sad to say there is just one other reviewer!), this book is not easy reading, but incredibly valuable for those patient enough to read and reread SLOWLY!
  •     Spirituality has become such a buzzword that it has lost much of its meaning. But Dr. Houston returns it to its root, a life shaped by the Spirit of God.Similarly, with spiritual directors crowding in alongside psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, and other "paid friends," Houston holds up the Christian mentor and spiritual friend as the more substantial aid to Christian living.Not an easy book to read, Houston draws widely and deeply from a lifetime of reading the great writers in spiritual theology throughout all of church history (not just the spiritually impoverished last couple centuries). Reading someone like Houston, who has taken in so much and has actually digested it, requires many readings and lots of patience. But the result is well worth the effort.
