As the followers of Jesus, we are called to be His disciples — a word that speaks of travelling and working alongside the Master and learning from Him. Many ancient traditions feature the master-disciple relationship, in which a teacher grooms his students to be like himself.
In this clear and insightful book, Methodist Bishop Emeritus Robert Solomon shows how we can live as Jesus’s disciples today, hearing His voice, obeying Him, and leaving a legacy for others to follow. Drawing from Scripture, church history and the lives of fellow disciples both past and present, Apprenticed to Jesus shines a light on many questions surrounding the Christian’s relationship with the Lord, and will help readers to better hear, follow and live like Him in every part of life’s journey.
“This book is a beautiful tapestry of Bible stories, Christian traditions and contemporary experience — providing the reader with an inspiring reflection on both the person and the sovereignty of Jesus and our relationship with Him.”
Rev Dr Patrick Fung
General Director, OMF International
“With a collection of more than 60 articles, Apprenticed to Jesus covers important themes of the Christian faith and addresses significant issues for the contemporary church. It is an excellent resource for pastors, teachers, leaders, or any individual who seeks a deeper understanding of Christian discipleship.”
