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.

Thanks so much for sharing these observations with your readers, Gwyneth! I had not (yet) taken note of this book. To share this important type of information is exactly what these columns are for.
The best to all our readers and contributors!

Thanks, Louis, for the encouragement. I've only been at this a short while and already the connections that have been made with those in our broader community are a strong motivator in continuing the work of adding resources and creating posts that inspire others to dialog about Leadership Development. Shalom.
