Apprenticed to Jesus: Learning from Him, Living like Him by Robert M Solomon
Product description 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 new book, Methodist Bishop Emeritus Robert Solomon shows how we can live as Jesus' 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. Review Apprenticed to Jesus is packed with the distilled wisdom and insights of Bishop Robert Solomon's years of immersion in Scripture, profound grasp of Christian theology, fruitful service as a shepherd of God s people and faithful personal walk with Christ. His clear and engaging writing style will make it a joy for individuals and groups to read and study. Here is a book, written by a wise and godly Christian leader, that will clarify and deepen your understanding of the faith. But even more, it will strengthen and inspire you to be an apprentice of Christ, following hard after him in the path of Christian discipleship. --Rev Dr Stephen A Seamands, Asbury Theological Seminary Serious Christians must stay connected to our Lord Jesus. As Bishop Solomon puts it, "It is the relationship with the Person of Jesus that is the soul of Christianity … we are to seek Him and pursue Him …" The reader will come away with a fresh determination to do just this. How? By being Jesus' 'apprentice'. I warmly commend this book to you. --Assoc Prof Ho Peng Kee, former Senior Minister of State for Law and Home Affairs, Singapore About the Author Bishop Emeritus Robert Solomon was Bishop of the Methodist Church in Singapore from 2000-2012.
