This book is written in a conversational style and offers practical guidance for leaders and non-leaders alike to better understand how to develop grace, wisdom and clarity of vision within church leadership. It is part of the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series.
It is broken down into 8 in-between-meeting-sized chapters, with an introduction entitled, "I'm an elder. Now what?" and a brief concluding chapter that make it an ideal choice for use by church councils during the devotions and development portions of their regular meetings over the course of a year. It would also be a useful tool in a shepherding relationship where an experienced church leader was walking alongside an up-and-coming leader.
