Speakers often use the words vision, boldness, and influence to describe the characteristics of effective leaders. Perry Noble, in The Most Excellent Way to Lead, makes the case that the heart of great leadership lies elsewhere. Perry, despite “winning” the label “least likely to succeed” in high school, beat the odds against him. Today, he inspires thirty-five thousand people every weekend to live for something greater than themselves. He credits this achievement to the leadership principles he has learned from the Bible. Surprisingly, the essence of leadership that produces genuine growth is buried in a Bible chapter often read at weddings. In this groundbreaking book, Perry walks us through that leadership chapter, describing the fifteen qualities of an inspirational leader. Whether you are an entrepreneur or a new parent, this book will encourage you to see every opportunity in life as a chance to lead in the “most excellent way.”

The loneliness of existence; the empty feeling of walking through life by yourself, searching for something greater-a purpose and a meaning! We all have trodden down this path at one time or another. All generations have had to grapple with this search-be it in the youth culture of today, the 1960s hippies, or the 1360s knights in shining armor. It doesn't matter what generation the person lived, the truth is we are all looking for love and meaning. One thinker has said that there is a God-shaped hole in each of us. Until we fill that hole with the love of God in Christ, we will continue to walk our journey lonely, empty, and confused. The good news is that God has demonstrated His love for us-sending Jesus to show us God's love, which is the more excellent way.

In 1 Corinthians 12:31, St. Paul exhorts the early Christians in Corinth to follow "a still more excellent way." The "way" he is speaking of is love—genuine, selfless love. For Paul, the ultimate meaning and perfect example of this love is found solely in the crucified, risen, and reigning Christ. With unwavering devotion, Paul's post-conversion life was focused on one goal: to point people to Jesus so they, too, could experience the unsurpassed joy that Paul himself had come to know through his Lord. A Still More Excellent Way encourages and inspires readers through fifty-two brief selections from Paul's writings. Each Scripture selection—short enough to be easily memorized—is followed by a story or meditation that supports the verses. And although the apostle Paul evangelized in the first-century Roman world, author Joseph Durepos uses plenty of twenty-first-century cultural references to make the material highly relevant for people today. Equally appropriate for personal reflection or small-group study, A Still More Excellent Way is an excellent opportunity for anyone to draw closer to Jesus through the unabashedly Christ-centered message of St. Paul.

What does it mean to exemplify Christian love? In a society that is more self-centered than God-centered, it is hard to locate those who are demonstrating godly love to others, with pure hearts. However, when we believe Jesus is our salvation from sin, we are given help from the Holy Spirit to express this love to others. In the third book by author Tom Hanson, And Yet I Show You a More Excellent Way, understanding the Word of God, for what agape love from God is compared to human love, is sought. Tom provides biblical commentary on what God considers agape love, which is enhanced when a believer allows the Holy Spirit, the Helper, to come into their lives and relationships and re-direct them as vessels of God. With God at the forefront of our relationships with Jesus, guided by the Holy Spirit, we will embody Christian love to others.

The Corinthian epistles give us a picture of a “mega” revival of a church in Corinth that had grown to about sixty or seventy thousand converts in four years and the problems associated with it. Rev. Caram shows how the Corinthian revival is a figure of the revival that is coming in the last days, as a net that is cast into the sea, wherein will be gathered all kinds, and the great need for spiritual mothers and fathers who are prepared to lead the church on to maturity.

This book investigates why, unlike in the early centuries, the ethical behavior of Christians today is so little different from that of non-Christians. It does this by first reviewing the teachings of Jesus about how Christians are to live and the positive response of early Christians to these teachings. The major portion of the book then documents how the rise of asceticism and the proliferation of church law came to eclipse Jesus' teachings of serving others through unselfish love. It reviews how Chrysostom, Augustine, Luther, and others tried to return the church to the New Testament way of life. The book reaches two conclusions: Christians today prefer to live by only avoiding the gross evils forbidden by the Ten Commandments rather than by Jesus' all-inclusive New Commandment of loving one another as he loved us. They are also willing to offer God the piety of churchly activity, but what God also asks, a life of goodness serving one's fellowman, they feel is just asking too much.

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

In talking with women around the country, Jim Henderson has come to believe that there is an epidemic of quiet, even sad resignation among dedicated Christian women who are feeling overworked and undervalued in the church. As a result, many women are discouraged. Some, particularly young women, respond by leaving the organized church . . . or walking away from the faith altogether. Containing personal interviews with women and new research from George Barna, The Resignation of Eve is a field report on what women have to say about how they’ve been affected by their experiences within the church. It is crucially important because, across the board, the research shows that women are driving changes in the church . . . so what will happen if they resign? Inviting women to speak for themselves, The Resignation of Eve is a must-read, life-changing book for women who have been engaged in the Christian church as well as their pastors and ministry leaders.

In an unorthodox approach, Cal Newport debunks the long-held belief that "follow your passion" is good advice, and sets out on a quest to discover the reality of how people end up loving what they do. Not only are pre-existing passions rare and have little to do with how most people end up loving their work, but a focus on passion over skill can be dangerous, leading to anxiety and chronic job hopping. Spending time with organic farmers, venture capitalists, screenwriters, freelance computer programmers, and others who admitted to deriving great satisfaction from their work, Newport uncovers the strategies they used and the pitfalls they avoided in developing their compelling careers. Matching your job to a pre-existing passion does not matter, he reveals. Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable, not before. In other words, what you do for a living is much less important than how you do it. With a title taken from the comedian Steve Martin, who once said his advice for aspiring entertainers was to "be so good they can't ignore you," Cal Newport's clearly written manifesto is mandatory reading for anyone fretting about what to do with their life, or frustrated by their current job situation and eager to find a fresh new way to take control of their livelihood. He provides an evidence-based blueprint for creating work you love, and will change the way you think about careers, happiness, and the crafting of a remarkable life.
