Friday Q & A #48

What one book besides the Bible would you recommend that a member of Bethlehem who wants to grow as a leader and servant in the body should read?

This question was answered by 13 of our leaders on staff.

  • David Mathis: The Master Plan of Evangelism, by Robert Coleman.
  • Bud Burk: Deserted by God, by Sinclair Ferguson. Ferguson demonstrates how to wield the Psalms to minister to despairing and hurting hearts.
  • Aaron Davitch: The Heart of a Servant Leader, by Jack Miller. Miller was the Pastor of New Life Presbyterian and started World Harvest Mission along with his son, Paul Miller (who wrote A Praying Life). The book is collection of letters he wrote to fellow pastors, missionaries, and congregants. He was also a big influence on Tim Keller.
  • Jason French: Spiritual Leadership, by J. Oswald Sanders
  • Sam Crabtree: Chosen By God, by R. C. Sproul and (bonus) The Pursuit of Holiness, by Jerry Bridges
  • Kempton Turner: Lectures to My Students, by Charles Spurgeon (with your Bible open!)
  • Vince Johnson: When People Are Big and God Is Small, by Ed Welch. God used this book to help me see how I worship myself in the name of caring about others’ opinions too much
  • Mary Delk: Maximum Impact, by Wayne Mack
  • Ken Currie: The Pleasures of God, by John Piper
  • Jason Meyer and David Livingston: Humility: True Greatness, by C. J. Mahaney
  • Dan Holst: Spiritual Depression, by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
  • Sally Michael: Gospel-Powered Humility, by William Farley
