  • Leading Change in the Congregationby Gilbert R. Rendle

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 16.99

    Many books have been written about leadership and change, but until now none has focused on the kind of change that tears at a community's very fabric. Alban senior consultant Gil Rendle provides a respectful context for understanding change, especially the experiences and resistances that people feel. Rendle pulls together theory, research, and his... more...

  • Becoming Barnabasby Paul Moots

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2004; US$ 15.99

    Western culture has made a cult of success, and the church has accepted the larger culture's definition, focusing on success as growth in membership and budget, rather growth in faithfulness as disciples of Jesus. When we do not measure up, we become discouraged, disillusioned, and perhaps even envious. Moots details numerous examples to show how the... more...

  • Humble Leadershipby N. Graham Standish

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 17.99

    There comes a point at which leaderhsip can break down precisely because of our success as leaders. When confidence turns to pride and arrogance, we lose sight of the people that we have been called to serve and become consumed with following our own vision. Graham Standish offers a way forward that moves us through this paradox by seeking to humbly... more...

  • The Meandering Wayby Gary A. Shockley

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 16.99

    How often do you feel overwhelmed by the pace of your life? These days it's easy to work harder and harder, constantly pushing ourselves and those around us so that we and our congregations can be "successful." We forget that our drive to succeed can prevent us from taking the time to stop and listen for what God is calling us and our congregations... more...

  • Cross-Shaped Leadershipby John A. Berntsen

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2008; US$ 16.99

    For Lutheran pastor John Berntsen, the cross is about more than the crucifixion on Good Friday. It is shorthand for the whole drama of salvation--God's decisive act of reconciling the world to God's own self. The cross is dying and rising with Christ, but at a deeper level it is the story of the world's resistance to grace. Those who lead are subject... more...

  • Gifts of an Uncommon Lifeby Jr. Howard E. Friend

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2008; US$ 17.99

    This book of ten essays is a breath of fresh air, a source of inspiration, a wake-up call, and a bold challenge for pastors, congregational leaders, and church members--both active and lapsed--who long for a new perspective, even a touch of creative irreverence. With an invitation to quietness and stillness, inner strength and resilience, audacious... more...

  • Greenhouses of Hopeby Dorie Grinenko Baker

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2010; US$ 17.99

    Do you know a church where young people regularly shape the liturgy with words that speak their truth in ways that also inspire their elders? Do you hear about congregations that reach out in quirky new ways to their ailing neighborhoods, instead of locking doors and shipping out to a suburb? Do you find churches creating hospitable space that invites... more...

  • Heart, Mind, and Strengthby Jeffrey D. Jones

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2008; US$ 17.99

    Leadership, observes Jeffrey Jones, is never about you. What happens to you as a leader stems from a vast array of issues and dynamics over which you have little or no control. Leadership, Jones also insists, is always about you--Christ's disciple, part of the system, an individual with your own anxieties and a personal life that shapes both your personhood... more...

  • Shaping Spiritual Leadersby Abigail Johnson

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 17.99

    Supervision--the shaping of spiritual leaders--occurs formally and informally in many aspects of congregational life. Every year, thousands of pastors supervise field education students and interns; staff members and lay leaders often supervise committee members or other staff; clergy and lay leaders supervise each other as a way to offer support and... more...

  • Strategic Leadership for a Changeby Kenneth J. McFayden

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2009; US$ 16.99

    Many congregations are experiencing significant change both within and beyond their walls, and both members and leaders feel a sense of loss in the midst of these changes. In the midst of change, loss, and grief, congregations yearn for leadership--typically with differing expectations of what constitutes effective leadership in response to their needs,... more...
