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.

Free Friday! Rainer on Evangelism

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

“Any prayerful approach to evangelism,” I began, “is better than what most churches are doing, because most churches are doing little or nothing.”

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book is Rainer on Evangelism by Thom S. Rainer.

In this short volume, Thom Rainer examines the disappearance of evangelism. While local churches are devoting less time, funding, and emphasis on equipping, encouraging, and sending people to share the gospel, Rainer explains why evangelism should be one of the highest priorities in your church. With honesty and candor, he looks at the ineffectiveness of most American believers when it comes to sharing their faith. He says, “It’s time to do less analysis, less complaining, and less finger pointing. It’s time for action. And for me, it has to begin in my heart.”

Free Friday! Augustine as Mentor

free_friday_med

The evidence surrounding Augustine’s life reveals a deeply personal and passionate man who was committed to people and friendship. As a servant of the church, his thoughts, which were dictated into books and letters and formulated into sermons, served to edify the church in Hippo, Africa, and beyond. In light of what we already know about Augustine, a focused study on his approach to mentoring spiritual leaders is a valuable contribution to the study of mentoring, discipleship, and spiritual formation in the early church that has much relevance for today. So let us begin to consider the life of one we should “emulate and imitate in this world. “

Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $17.95 is Augustine as Mentor: A Model for Preparing Spiritual Leaders by Edward L. Smither.

Augustine as Mentor is written for modern day pastors and spiritual leaders who want to mentor and equip other evangelical Christians based on proven principles in matters of the heart like integrity, humility, faithfulness, personal holiness, spiritual hunger, and service to others.
