Free Friday! Spiritual Leadership

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Leadership. Everyone experiences it, or the lack of it, in their daily lives. Those called to lead can find doing so a daunting task. Those expected to follow can experience frustration when their leader is unable to lead and their organization seems to be going nowhere. Struggling leaders may agonize in the knowledge that others resent them and blame them for their organizations’ failures. Countless discouraged leaders would probably quit their jobs today, but they need the income. Besides, they fear the same problems would engulf them in their new jobs. Discouraged, Christian leaders carry the added, albeit misguided, burden that they are failing not only their people but their Lord. They feel guilty because they lack the faith to move their organization forward yet the same fears prevent them from leaving their leadership positions for jobs where they might be more successful. Is there any hope for the countless numbers of leaders who are not experiencing the fulfillment and reaching the potential God intended for them? If anything can revolutionize today’s Christian leaders, it is when Christians understand God’s design for spiritual leaders.

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis

“Making the Scriptures plain is the aim of every biblical interpreter, but the Old Testament baffles many. The NIDOTTE is a major key to sound understanding of the Old Testament, its ideas that continue into the New, and its relevance for life today. Extensive cross-references and indexing direct the inquire to every aspect of the word or theme, and the entries have up-to-date bibliographies for further study. Sample articles carefully draw meaning from the text, not read modern ideas into it, while interacting with influential and current theories. Introductory essays helpfully survey basic methods of approach to the Old Testament as a whole, guiding the user through them. When dictionaries and encyclopedias are multiplying, NIDOTTE looks set to become the standard work in this field for all who respect the Bible.” – A.R. Millard, MA, MPhil, FSA, Rankin Professor of Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, The University of Liverpool

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Greek & Exegesis is a highly-praised, massive work that provides extensive research and explanation of each word in the Old Testament. Intended for serious exegetical study of the Old Testament by academics, pastors, and students of God’s Word, the exhaustive research put into each of the five volumes makes this immersive work key to a sound understanding of the Bible.
