Book of the Month
September’s book of the month is Courageous Churchmen by Jerry Wragg (15). With piercing clarity and straightforward, concrete biblical instruction, Wragg pinpoints the problem with current leadership trends in the church and thoroughly examines those leadership qualities that God esteems. This book will be a blessing to all who desire to grow as leaders for the sake of God’s glory and the enduring witness of God’s church.
