Augustine as Mentor is a book I reviewed written by Edward Smithers. Here are some points that really stuck out:
Mentoring or discipleship is the work of one Christian helping another (or group of them) grow in their knowledge and application of the teachings of Jesus and the Scriptures to realize the fullness of their salvation.
Mentoring includes guiding and helping disciples live holy. It gets messy but it is so important.
Sound teaching is a key component to mentoring/discipleship.
This book had some very good and interesting points. Not everyone would enjoy reading it because it reads like a theological/historical thesis’s.I will post my review here in the near future.
