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.
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
