Overview

In this newly revised and expanded edition of a contemporary classic, Edward Sellner mines the deep wisdom of many traditions—from Celtic to Minnesotan, from Joan of Arc to C.S. Lewis—and demonstrates how relationships of mentoring, rooted and grounded in the love of Christ, can forge fast friendship, heal wounds from the past, and bring about the Reign of God. Sellner speaks from firsthand knowledge and experience of mentoring—the practice of direction, counsel, and formation which has enjoyed an enormous resurgence in our time in arenas as disparate as business, the recovery movement, and spiritual direction. This timely book is itself an opportunity to engage with a wise and seasoned elder.
