The narrow road is dangerous and full of hardship; it was never intended to be traveled alone. We were always supposed to have guides. And we are also expected to lead others along that path.

Unfortunately, Christian mentorship has been neglected far too long. We are in danger of losing yet another generation to mediocrity and self-interest if we do not act now.

Letters to an Apprentice invites you on a journey—occasionally uncomfortable and revealing—as one young apprentice develops and matures through the influence of one mentor after another. These lessons are shared through a series of letters that use real-life scenarios to prompt innovative ideas that inspire you to become a better mentor or apprentice. Letters to an Apprentice is filled with practical examples and steps to help you:

•    find your mentor and make the best of that relationship.
•    find your apprentice and pass on what you have learned.
•    Create a culture of mentorship in your family, church, ministry, or team.

Readers Feedback

“Mentoring is about relationships—and relationships are about people. God often gives us the gift of people in our lives so we might become more like Him through their influence and witness. This book is a testament to that fact. It introduces you to many of Jeremy’s mentors while also fervently and practically challenging you to find a mentor and be one, too. I have mentored several men, but this book has pushed me to think even more intentionally about how I do it.”

“In Letters to an Apprentice: A Culture of Mentorship, Jeremy Taliaferro provides both a practical guide on mentoring and a passionate challenge for every Christ-follower to steward well their influence in the lives of others. After riding the dusty roads of Uganda with Jeremy, walking through refugee settlements with him, and watching him interact with his children, his team members, and indigenous church leaders, I can testify to the fact that Jeremy is modeling what he encourages his readers to do. I can also state that his book has inspired and equipped me to be a better mentor. I highly recommend it.”
