I ordered my copy of Mentor Like Jesus last week, got it by Thursday and read it by Sunday afternoon. It was thought provoking and kept me engaged all the way through. I was blessed by the book and some of the key principles and plan on reading it again slower in order to harvest all that it has to offer.
The author, Regi Campbell writes with a simplistic and straight forward fashion. In essence the book is his story on how he fell into group mentoring, the lessons he learned along the way, and how similar it really was to how Jesus mentored the disciples. The book also has a co-author named Richard Chancy who had been through one of Regi’s mentoring groups. At the end of each chapter Richard shares the perspective of the guys who were being mentored.
Overall I really liked this book. Some of the principles were common, but others stood out as brilliant insights into the world of mentoring. Probably the biggest key I took away was that mentoring in group dynamic can be beneficial to those being mentored as well as to the one mentoring.
If you are looking for a good book on mentorship, this book is for you. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to begin a mentor group. The retail price is $16.99 (Hardcover), I got my copy for just under $12 at Amazon.com. I gave it five stars.
