Think about the people who influenced your life most. Why did they do it? ^What did they do? How did they go about it?

His ^writings have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Dallas Morning News, Christianity ^Today and numerous other publications. He is the proud father of three daughters ^by his late wife, Nancy.

For more than 35 years I have known, loved, and admired Howie Hendricks.  ^I am not alone.  He has left his mark on thousands of lives.  In a real ^sense, only he knows the mentoring secrets that have marked men for a lifetime.  ^I'm grateful he has decided to put into print his mentoring guidelines and techniques.  ^They are threads drawn from the fabric of God's timeless tapestry.  As ^Iron Sharpens Iron will be the classic on mentoring.  I commend Howie and ^his son Bill for this contribution to our lives.
-Chuck Swindoll, President, ^Dallas Theological Seminary, Radio Bible Teacher, Insight for Living

Howard Hendricks ^is always worth listening to.  Having benefitted in a life-changing way from ^being mentored by a man thirty years my senior, I can recommend mentoring enthusiastically.  ^As Iron Sharpens Iron gives you a valuable "how to" guide to the process.
-Bob ^Buford, Author of Halftime: Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance

Mentoring, ^as my good friend Howard and his son Bill suggest, is one of the most powerful yet ^under-utilized disciplines for men today.  My life would not have taken the ^course it did without the input of a few key men along the way.  As a coach, ^I saw firsthand the difference between players who had trusted mentors, and those ^who unfortunately did not.  This straightforward book will inspire and motivate ^you in a profound way.  I highly recommend it.
-Tom Landry, NFL Hall ^of Fame, Dallas Cowboys

Dr. Howard Hendricks is one of my favorite people.  ^He combines a great wit and keen intellect in his teaching.  Both Howard and ^Bill have provided a much-needed message for Christians today: We all need mentors ^along life's path.  Their book also helps us to understand that we need to ^mentor others.  I highly recommend it.

-Bill Bright, Campus ^Crusade for Christ International

I can think of no one in the Christian ^world better qualified to speak on mentoring than Howie Hendricks.  I am a ^product of his mentoring and can honestly say that few have shaped my life as he ^has.  In this book, Howard and Bill do a phenomenal job of challenging those ^who need to be mentored, as well as those who need to mentor: This is a significant ^book.
-Ronald W. Blue, Founder and Managing Partner, Ronald Blue and Co.

An ^outstandingly helpful book on the powerful concept of mentoring--something every ^Christian needs to be involved in.  A great resource.
-Lorne C. Sanny, ^The Navigators

Howard and Bill Hendricks' book could not come at a more ^important time in the history of the church and our nation.  There is such ^a need, especially in the urban communities, for mentors--people who can encourage ^and challenge our youth and be personal examples of how to live.  I strongly ^recommend this book.
-
John Perkins, Publisher, Urban Family Magazine

The ^process of mentoring means duplicating and even multiplying.  Howie and Bill ^Hendricks present great insight into the entire process of mentoring.  ^It is a book worth reading, and then doing.
-Norm Sonju, COO and General Manager, ^The Dallas Mavericks

Anytime I can sit at Howie Hendricks' feet to learn, ^I'll do it.  Reading this book is no exception!  I cannot think of ^an individual more qualified by the experience and insight to address effective ^spirtiual mentoring than Howard.  Here's a graphic manual, eminently practical ^and applicable, by one who speaks out of his experience in the fine art of mentoring.  ^Don't miss his insights!
-Ted W. Engstrom, President Emeritus, World Vision

There's ^a long line of men in front of me with whom I share one thing in common: Howard ^Hendricks is our spiritual mentor.  Every Timothy has a Paul.  Dr. Hendricks ^is a Paul to us.  His iron has sharpened our ax.  Lay yours upon ^the grinder and watch the sparks fly!
-Joe White, President, Kanakuk-Kanakomo ^Kamps, Inc.

Bravo!  Howard and Bill offer refreshing, straight talk ^about men's needs, our tendency to avoid them, and some down-to-earth help.  ^I felt invited to break out of some bad habits and ruts and to form some partnerships ^with other men of faith.  Thank you!
-Pete Hammond, Director, Marketplace-InterVarsity ^Christian Fellowship

Mentoring is not an option, it is a necessity.  ^Dr. Hendricks and Bill give profound yet practical insight on the priority, ^process, and practice of this vital need in every man's life.  
-Tony ^Evans, Author, Speaker, Senior Pastor

Howard Hendricks addresses ^a critical issue in today's issue in today's world with a clarity and directness ^that reaches both the mind and the heart.
-Jerry Bridges, The ^Navigators

-John Van Diest, President, Vision House Publishing

This ^book challenges us to build into the life of another person as well as be responsive ^to having our life enhanced by another.  It effectively convinces us ^that our physical, mental, and spiritual journeys of life urgently need a "Paul," ^a "Barnabas," and a "Timothy" relationship.  You will find this book ^encouraging, inspiring, convicting, and enjoyable.  We need it!
-Jack ^A. Turpin, Founder and Chairman, Hall-Mark Electronic Co.

As you ^read this book, you will learn more about the importance of relationships in the ^process of becoming what God wants you to be.  Howard and Bill help us ^to understand the importance of others in the process of becoming.  ^
