Yancy describes thirteen people (living and dead) who greatly impacted his life and faith. There is one chapter per person, and each chapter mixes together a bit of the subjects biography and life views and a bit of Yancy's biography and life views. Each chapter ends with a brief guide to reading more about that person. He calls these mentors "unlikely" because he has experienced backlash from conservative Christians when writing about these mentors, but I personally didn't find anything shocking about them.

I found each chapter individually interesting as I was reading it, but now a month later they've rather blurred together. That probably reflects more on me than on the book. I think this is a nice little book by itself but is better as a jumping off point to get to know these individuals in greater depth.
