Summary: In his third book in The Apprentice Series trilogy, James Bryan Smith helps us know how to live in relationship with others as apprentices of Jesus."Apprentices of Jesus are not part-time do-gooders," he writes. "They live in continuous contact with the kingdom of God and are constantly men and women in whom Christ dwells. They do not sometimes tell the truth, sometimes live sacrificially or sometimes forgive. There are myriad opportunities for us to affect the world we live in."--Publisher.
