Business Books Every Ministry Leader Should Read


Business Books for Ministry Leaders

I asked Christian leaders across the U.S. to recommend a book written primarily for business leaders that they’ve found helpful in their ministry leadership. The first 10 of these were originally published in the September 2016 issue of the Christian Standard in my monthly “Best Practices” column. (See the original article HERE.) I’ve added 5 more and included all 15 …

REVIEW: Let Hope In by Pete Wilson


Let Hope In

Hope. Someone—perhaps everyone—in your small group needs it, especially now. When I watch the news each day, I see tons of people who need it. When I talk to the men in my small group, each one needs it for different reasons. When I look at our family’s finances, health and health insurance, kids growing up into adults, family members …

REVIEW: Running with God, by Liz Linssen


Every once in a while as I edit a book, it takes longer than expected, not because the writing is bad but because the content is so good that I get distracted from my job. Running with God was such a book for me. I enjoy trying to stay healthy and physically fit. I’m not much of a runner anymore; I …

Why Didn’t You Warn Me?


“Leading a small group isn’t easy,” says my friend Pat Sikora. “It seems that more people are more wounded than ever before,” and it seems most of them are in our small groups! That’s why, when I was developing a new series of small group books for leaders several years ago for Standard Publishing, I called Pat and asked her to …
