Item Description...
Through story, parable and thoughtful commentary, bestselling author Steve Chalke calls us into a deep experience of learning and relationship with Jesus. In a journey that takes us beyond the divide of secular and religious culture, we learn to voice our most intimate questions and discover the richness of apprenticing ourselves to the master teacher in ten crucial areas of life.

Publishers Description
The quest for meaning and purpose dwells within all of us. Jesus insisted that its fulfillment lay in a relationship with him. But what does that relationship look like---really?Apprentice calls spiritual pilgrims, both Christians and non-Christians, to exchange the shallow diversions of secular and religious culture for the pursuit of our true desires. In a book of refreshing honesty, great heart, and rich creativity, Steve Chalke guides us into an apprenticeship with the master teacher, Jesus. Embarking on a relational journey that engages us on every level, we walk with Jesus in an organic, whole-life learning experience, exploring ten areas foundational to the meaning and depth we crave.Apprentice encourages us to ask our most probing questions, embrace our doubts, and learn why we are driven to belong. Combining story and parable with thoughtful commentary, we discover the ancient art and discipline of apprenticeship--- living lives stamped with the character, presence, and impact of Jesus.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Mixed Bag  Feb 25, 2010
I bought this book unaware of the controversy Chalke created with a prior book regarding the subject of atonement. I'm glad I did, because otherwise I would have missed out on some very good nuggets of biblical wisdom.

I was very much enjoying the book until I got to the section on Forgiving, when suddenly the biblical Jesus was replaced with the "social activist" Jesus. Most people are uncomfortable with the theology of turning the other cheek. Chalke is apparently so uncomfortable with it that he completely turns the traditional interpretation of this passage around to make it about asserting ourselves. He goes into a very contrived explanation of how turning the left cheek would dare a slave owner to hit an inferior with an unclean hand, which would then make them equals. Huh? He provides not one single reference to back up this interpretation.

The social activist Jesus stays with us for the remainder of the book, when suddenly Christianity is defined as a religion created by God to ensure the liberation of the poor, oppressed and enslaved. While I certainly believe liberating the poor, oppressed and enslaved is among the goals of Christians, I believe the primary goal of the Christian is to glorify God (Isaiah 43:7). While Jesus did desire to liberate the poor, oppressed and enslaved, his primary goal was to liberate all people from their own sin (John 8:34-36). He was open and available to both the oppressed and the oppressors.

There is much to learn from this book about walking in the way of Christ -- much that I will try to incorporate in my own walk. The section on Believing is in particular very good. But while some ideas may sound very good, I would be hesitant to accept anything new that has no proof -- biblical or otherwise -- to back it up.
