Item Description...
Overview
Jesus, My Mentor is about the spirituality of Jesus, how Jesus lived with God as described in the gospels, and how Jesus' way of relating to God and the world can be a positive and satisfying spirituality for us today. A spirituality modeled by Jesus offers us a way of coming to know the God of Jesus, not as a frightening or distant deity, but the God who opens a way when there seems to be no way, who is at home in the world we call home, and who welcomes us back whenever we are lost. With Jesus as mentor and guide, Kater takes readers on a modern pilgrimage to understand the good news as Jesus knew it. He explores the stories, parables, and prayers of the gospel in the context of their time and their message for us today. He seeks to dispel some popular misconceptions about the Christian understanding of God and the world and shows us that Jesus' understanding is both easily visible and an attractive alternative. Focusing on how Jesus approached God and shared his understanding with others, Kater emphasizes Jesus' passion for life and the importance of hope and commitment for living fully. The spirituality of Jesus is not hopelessly out of date, but continues to offer a vision of life with a loving God that gives hope and meaning to us as it did to Jesus and his friends. When we let Jesus be our mentor, we do not find God in our solitude, but in community with one another.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Welcome View on Spiritual Growth  Apr 21, 2005
The Reverend Kater presents a thoughtful and compelling argument in this book for those seeking a new or deepened relationship with Jesus Christ. This book would be an excellent starting point for the reader who is interested in developing such a relationship but has been turned off by the overly simplistic approach of other writers.

Father Kater conveys important theological points in a way that never glosses over their complexity while still making them easily acessible and comprehensible. His is not a "feel-good" book but rather a straight forward explanantion of how Christ can and does operate in our lives today.

One notable part of the book is its stress on the value of meeting Christ within the context of Christian community. Too many books stress the personal aspect of developing a relationship with God and ignore the value of community in Christian life.

I would reccomend this book to any congregational leader looking for a text for an entry level course aimed at new or lapsed Christians. The discussion questions included at the end of the book make a good aid for such a class.
