Who Are Your Mentors?


who are  your mentors

Follow the steps of good men instead, and stay on the paths of the righteous. (Proverbs 2:20)

Read: Genesis 20:1-22:24, Matthew 7:15-29, Psalm 9:1-12, Proverbs 2:16-22

Relate: One of the first “real” books I read after I got out of college was Christ and Culture by Richard Niebuhr. It forced me to evaluate how I view the interaction between God and the world. it also got me on a serious neo-orthodox kick. I started reading pretty much I could get my hands on from Richard and Reinhold Niebuhr, Karl Barth, Emil Brunner, and Paul Tillich. For the next few years these guys became my mentors. One man from that generation seemed to rise to the top not only because of what he wrote but because of how he lived and died. Dietrich Bonhoeffer and his magnum opus: The Cost of Discipleship also rose to the top of my most influential books list.
