The Divine Mentor: Growing Your Faith as You Sit at the Feet of the Savior

Many believers settle for a spiritual routine that lacks God's presence. But what they truly want, and truly need, is a dynamic, vital, and intimate relationship with God. Here Wayne Cordeiro gently but directly shows readers how to move from routine to relationship--from mundane actions to fresh encounters--by learning to hear Him speak to them through the Bible. Through stories, lessons, and anecdotes, Cordeiro equips readers to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as they read God's Word, enabling them to transform their daily quiet time with the Lord.

Interesting account of how Cordeiro took responsibility for his own spiritual growth. Instead of complaining 'I am not getting fed in this church' he explains how he became a self starter and learned how to learn on his own. As a you pastor in Hawaii, he came across a biography of Titus Coan who... ...more

“Enter the Bible daily” (p. 207). This sums up what The Divine Mentor, by Wayne Cordeiro, is all about. It is powerful book about the power of God’s Word and how the simple habit of engaging in the Word on daily basis will dramatically impact one’s life. Cordeiro has a deep & authentic passio... ...more

One of the best books I have read this year. This is an easy-to-read plan on how to read, understand and apply what the Bible talks about to one's life.

Through the use of this 4-step process (S.O.A.P.), Cordeiro not only "fed" himself spiritual principles for Biblical living, he grew a church (ma... ...more

Excellent teaching on how to do daily personal Bible study. Very encouraging, gentle and wise. This is a good primer for quality quiet times and would be good for use with college students and new believers.

For whatever reason, most of the scriptures were left without their references. I had to... ...more

Now I understand why every time I wanted to do devotions, it was such a battle!
After reading the first 3 chapters, I made a promise to God that if he gave me the grace to do so I would never miss my time with him again!
I knew devotions were important because I had been told so my whole life but... ...more

I read this with about 6 other people from church. But spent more time digesting it with 1 of those 6 people. I got some useful techniques for reading the bible in a "devotional" style. I have passed on that form of reading to other folks I've met in the past two or three years. ...more

what a great book! one statement the author made changed my attitude about "just reading" to "take note!": Pg.119 under the sub-heading of "Entering the Bible" - "Reading the Bible will tell you about history and tender facts. Entering the Bible will be like shadowing Christ. You'll hear Him spea... ...more

Our church is doing this as a study so our Sunday School class is focusing on it. I find it a very good, insightful and easy read while also making me look hard at my own commitment to discipleship and devotions (which I will admit now is next to nil). I have a feeling that will change throughout... ...more

This can be a life changing book...if you take it to heart. It is a guide to daily Bible Reading. I have followed this plan for over 5 years now and all will testify that I am a very a better way person.

It is an easy read but where it leads is a place of great adventure, discovery... ...more
