Here are the three books I will be reading this semester in my Pastoral/Leadership Ministry course at Cbu. I have already started John Piper's book and it is radical. I love the passion and the simplicity he expresses with his concerns to pastors losing a biblical perspective and purpose of being a shepherd of God's people. It is highly recommended to read! I have not started the other two books so I will write about those later in the next few months.
Brothers, We're NOT Professionals by John Piper
Ministry by the Book by Derek Tidball
The Leadership Baton: An Intentional Strategy for Developing Leaders in Your Church by Rowland Forman, Jeff Jones, and Bruce Miller
