Item description for Divine Mentor, The: Growing Your Faith as You Sit at the Feet of the Savior by Wayne Cordeiro...
Overview Many believers---no matter where they are in their walk with God---settle for a spiritual routine that lacks God's presence. But what they truly want, and truly need, is a dynamic, vital, and intimate relationship with God. In The Divine Mentor, Wayne Cordeiro gently but directly shows you how to move from routine to relationship---from mundane actions to fresh encounters---by learning to hear Him speak to you through the Bible. Just as the disciples had a fresh, daily walk with Jesus on earth, God intends for Christians to have communion with Him through His Word and His Holy Spirit. Through stories, lessons, and anecdotes, Cordeiro equips you to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as you read God's Word, enabling you to revolutionize your daily quiet time with the Lord.

Lighting the Fire of Your Life and Devotions Dec 13, 2009
This is an outstanding book! If your devotional life has been floundering or just needs a boost - this book will ignite it. I have shared this book with so many people I have lost count. I have used it as the focal point for a small group. It is awesome for one on one or group mentoring. Wayne writes simply, authentically and compelling. His illustrations are incredibly memorable. If you want to light a fire under your spiritual life - this book is the one. Highly recommend it.

Amazing Book Jun 28, 2009
I am recommending this book to everyone I know. It was recommended to me through my church newsletter. Wayne Cordeiro writes well and the book reads easily. After reading the book I am really motivated to bring more time for spending time with God into my life, and this is a wonderful way to do so.
Call back to the most important Feb 21, 2009
Many books out there offer the newest and best way to do things, to have a great spiritual life or whatever. What makes this book great is the simple call back to what's most important. There is a reason that when people ask, "How do I become closer to God?" the most common response is "Read your Bible." Many just play this off as the Sunday school cop out answer, but the reason that it has been the answer for so long, is because it's true! If you want to learn about God, listen in on the stories of his people, allow yourself to be transformed by the life of Jesus, and be challenged to take discipleship to the next level, it's all in Scripture for us.
Wayne Cordeiro has done a great job of reminding us all of this and giving a very simple, easy to remember way to read Scripture, but to do more than just read--to allow Scripture to get inside of you, to transform you. He even gives ideas about how to incorporate this plan into small group settings so people can grow together, through the same Scriptures. I think it's a great plan, a program that will be easy to implement and highly effective as a base for small group ministry.
Cordeiro's book isn't a hard read. It's refreshing. You will probably be able to finish this book rather quickly, but his word pictures, stories, and illustrations will help call you back to the one thing that is truly needed in the life of a Christian--to sit at the feet of Jesus.
Great Book Jan 5, 2009
I purchased this book on the recommendation of my pastor, and let me say that I am very glad I did. I plan to purchase extra copies now to pass on to others who I feel might benefit from it.
