Roland's Book Of The Month

November 2008

"I'm tired of helping others enjoy God."

"I just want to enjoy God for myself." With this painful admission, Ruth Haley Barton invites us to an honest exploration of what happens when spiritual leaders lose track of their souls. Weaving together contemporary illustrations with penetrating insight from the life of Moses, Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership explores topics such as responding to the dynamics of calling facing the loneliness of leadership leading from your authentic self cultivating spiritual community reenvisioning the promised land discerning God's will together.

Each chapter includes a spiritual practice to ensure your soul gets the nourishment it needs. Forging and maintaining a life-giving connection with God is the best choice you can make for yourself and for those you lead.

Undoubtedly the most revered leader in American history, Abraham Lincoln has had more books written about him than all ournation's presidents put together. But for all that's been written,little has focused on his faith and how this quality shaped the man who led our country during its most tumultuous years.

Author Joe Wheeler, historian and scholar, brings to the pages of this insightful book the knowledge gleaned from over ten years of study and more than sixty books on the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. Skillfully weaving his own narrative with direct quotes from Lincoln and poignant excerpts from other Lincoln biographers, Wheeler brings a refreshingly friendly rendition of Lincoln's life, faith, and courage.

The stories, historical details, and powerful quotes on the pages of this book will leave a lasting impression on your heart, your mind, and your life.

The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate the philosophies that cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, good leaders can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address.

In Axiom: The Language of Leadership, author Bill Hybels divulges the God-given convictions that have dictated his leadership strategy for more than three decades as senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. Oriented toward four key leadership categories …
1. Vision and strategy (“Promote Shameless Profitability,” “Take a Flyer”)
2. Teamwork and communication (“Obi-Wan Kenobi Isn’t for Hire,” “Disagree without Drawing Blood”)
3. Activity and assessment (“Develop a Mole System,” “Sweat the Small Stuff”)
4. Personal integrity (“Admit Mistakes, and Your Stock Goes Up,” “Fight for Your Family”)
…Axiom brokers accessible wisdom from one leader’s journey, as well as emboldens you to nail down the reasons why you lead like you lead.

It’s a must for men or women whose past wounds are preventing today’s joys. It draws us to our True Father’s heart, which is the fulfillment of the love longings we are looking for.

Experiencing Father's Embrace is an excellent resource for anyone interested in growing or ministering in the Father's love message. The author's style of writing makes this book easy to read, yet it is one of the most thorough and profoundly impacting books available on knowing God as a Father.

As the young, hard-nosed, newly appointed captain of a commercial fishing boat, Jack Frost returned after the first week as "top Hook" -he had out-fished all the others. But he also harpooned his mentor's heart on the way to the top.

Captain Frost's exciting and dangerous adventures take you from Cape horn to Antarctica to the shores of North Carolina and Poland as he describes his journey from a sinking ship of slavery to his maiden voyage of sonship.

Learn how to throw your "orphan" attitude overboard and anchor your heart iin God's inheritance of blessings and prosperity. Identify the counterfeit sources of comfort and affection in your life:

- Passions & Possessions
- Position & Performance
- People & Places
- Power

Christen and launch your life's ship alongside the One who can calm every storm-every time.

A foreign culture, with a belief in Jesus but not the Messiah and Lord that Christians profess. A culture where true belief in Christ can be a death sentence. Where accurate information about Christianity can be hard to come by, and the ability to assess the truth of information about it is difficult to obtain. Where people you know and love exercise hatred toward Christianity, America, and professing Christians. Like you.

Become immersed in a forbidden culture---that of Christians in lands where it is a capital crime to be so. The prose draws you into the story, the true story of these courageous men and women, who have forsaken friends, family, safety, and sometimes their own lives for the sake of Christ. The first, larger part of the book chronicles over a decade of drama, intrigue, revelations, and trials of these outlaw believers and the Christians who risk everything to be in a place to help them. Part two challenges readers to respond to the issues and truths covered in the first part, and gently leads concerned parties to proper attitudes towards Muslims and issues surrounding this highly volatile modern reality.

Your personal guide to learning how to love. When you say or hear the words "I love you" it can change your life forever. Love is one of God's most important gifts to anyone, yet there are many misunderstandings about how to make love work in our families, friendships, marriages and dating relationships. In Loving People, best-selling author Dr. John Townsend shows you that love can actually be learned, and gives you the steps and tools to become skilled in love.

Using his trademark stories and illustrations to flesh out the important principles, Dr. Townsend covers:
        - receiving love
        - connecting love
        - healing love

        - confronting love
        - romantic love

        - surrendering love
Through his teaching, readers will discover - and start enjoying - the words, actions, and experiences of authentic love.

Many believers---no matter where they are in their walk with God---settle for a spiritual routine that lacks God's presence. But what they truly want, and truly need, is a dynamic, vital, and intimate relationship with God. In The Divine Mentor, Wayne Cordeiro gently but directly shows you how to move from routine to relationship---from mundane actions to fresh encounters---by learning to hear Him speak to you through the Bible. Just as the disciples had a fresh, daily walk with Jesus on earth, God intends for Christians to have communion with Him through His Word and His Holy Spirit. Through stories, lessons, and anecdotes, Cordeiro equips you to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as you read God's Word, enabling you to revolutionize your daily quiet time with the Lord.
