  • The Honest to God Churchby Doug Bixby

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 20.00

    Doug Bixby knows that many of us have had enough of the liberal vs. conservative battles in the church. In The Honest to God Church, Bixby demonstrates how these extremes have distracted us from our true calling as conduits for God's grace--both individually and as congregations. Many churches see themselves as "okay," while everyone outside the church... more...

  • The Meandering Wayby Gary A. Shockley

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 20.00

    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...

  • The Power of Asset Mappingby Luther K. Snow

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2004; US$ 20.50

    Asset mapping isn't a new system or theory. It's a way of thinking, a doorway into an "open-sum" perspective rooted in the Bible and common experience. The Power of Asset Mapping, by long-time community developer Luther K. Snow, shows congregational leaders how to help a group recognize its assets and the abundance of God's gifts and to act on them... more...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2006; US$ 20.00

    Anxious times call for steady leadership. When tensions emerge in a congregation, its leaders cannot be as anxious as the people they serve. To remain effective, congregational leaders must control their own uneasiness. With this book, internationally respected consultant Peter Steinke goes deeper into the requirements of effective congregational... more...

  • Leading Change in the Congregationby Gilbert R. Rendle

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 20.00

    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...

  • Cross-Shaped Leadershipby John A. Berntsen

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2008; US$ 20.00

    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$ 20.50

    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$ 20.50

    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$ 20.50

    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...
