    A call to invest in the lives of others

    I honestly thought this book would provide some practical tips on teaching others. It certainly does that, but much more. This book is not some list of quick tips on how to be a better teacher. Instead, it's a plea to pour out your life for the benefit of OTHERS. My whole notion of a 'mentor' was totally changed after reading this book. Dr Davis suggests that the job of a true mentor is to invest in people. Mentors are 'not to produce great men and women, but rather to energize ordinary men and women to be greatly motivated for the cause of Jesus Christ.' To cite just one example of practical advice found here: Ron advises the prospective mentor to become an AFFIRMER, as opposed to a strict EVALUATOR. We need to build-up those we counsel, rather than tear them down. Mentoring is investing in people. I especially appreciated the touching examples of the author's father and brother--both who lived the lives of meaningful mentors to those in their paths. To those who think that mentoring might be a real ego booster, Ron has some startling news: The Godly mentor doesn't seek his or her own glory. Quite the opposite, in fact. Mentoring, the Biblical way, is a 'thankless, unattractive, unpretentious calling.' I highly recommend this serious and thought-provoking work by Dr. Ron Lee Davis.
