Eryl Davies’ short guide to mentoring answers all the most common questions people have about being a mentor. Including the biblical examples of Jesus and Paul, Davies shows how a mentoring relationship is a close, real–life relationship that can supply us with the wisdom and encouragement we need. A mentor helps to apply biblical wisdom to family and work tensions, suffering, disappointments, difficult choices, bereavement, personal development, spiritual growth.
Davies also includes testimonies from a number of people who have been mentored and are mentoring others, application questions to consider at the end of each chapter, as well as a reading list to examine how other Christians have actively mentored others.
About D. Eryl Davies
From North Wales, Eryl Davies was converted as a student and ordained into the Presbyterian Church of Wales, serving churches in South and North Wales. He was called to become the first principal of what is now Union School of Theology, serving now as a Research Supervisor. He is an elder in Heath Church, Cardiff. Married with two children, he also enjoys being with his young grandchildren, writing, reading theology, current affairs and, when there is time, sport!
In our day of social media ‘influencers’ (many inexperienced and undignified), Davies pulls us back to Christian influencing in and for the sake holiness, wisdom, character and experience. Written by a true mentor, Davies practically models what he writes; chiefly as he calls us to listen to others as the Lord Jesus did. This book is an inspirational demonstration of the power of mentoring in the life of the Church. - Natalie Brand
