    "Pastors and church leaders want to see lives changed by the gospel. They work tirelessly to care for people, initiate new programs and ministries, preach new sermon series, and keep up with the latest trends. Sadly, it would seem that much of this effort is not resulting in deeply changed disciples. Why? Because many churches are unknowingly operating from a shallow discipleship that allows people to recycle the same problems year after year. Church goers are increasingly passive with lives not distinct from the culture. People are not able to integrate anger and sadness. Many are defensive and incapable of revealing their own weaknesses. Church leaders desperately need a better way of teaching people what it means to follow Jesus in a transformative way. In Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, bestselling author Pete Scazzero combines three decades of wisdom with hard lessons from his own ministry journey. He lays out what is required for church leaders to multiply deeply-changed people who are growing in relationship with God, themselves and others. Scazzero begins with four beneath-the-surface, systemic gaps that undermine serious discipleship. He provides a clear vision for a church culture that deeply changes lives and then practically unpacks the seven biblical marks of emotionally healthy discipleship: - Learn to Be Before You Do - Follow the Crucified, Not the Americanized, Jesus - Receive the Gift of Limits - Befriend Suffering and Loss - Break the Power of the Past - Practice the Presence of People - Lead Out of Brokenness and Vulnerability Finally, he lays out practical steps for you to create an emotionally healthy discipleship culture that actually has the power to change the world. Graphics, assessments, and appendixes are available in the audiobook companion PDF download."

    God's astounding claims about Himself and His work on our behalf are embedded throughout the pages of Scripture. He sees potential in us that we don't see in our wildest dreams. He sees qualities that we don't think we can ever achieve. He has faith in us that we lack in ourselves. But when we know and fully understand what He has promised, we are liberated to grow in virtue, live out our faith as an adventure, relate to others with authenticity, earn a living with integrity, and make a difference in our culture - all through his power. Lee Strobel's insights into the benefits of living as a fully devoted follower of Christ are refreshing and powerfully relevant. Using true stories, including his own, he shows that Christianity really works, that we really can live transformed, authentic, and effective lives - and that God's promises and power are very real and very true.

    “I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.” Too often, these words of Jesus from John 17:20-21 seem like an unreachable ideal.

    People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don’t know where to start. In fact, “serving the least” is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church. Barefoot Church shows readers how today’s church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, readers will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor. Here they will see how the organizational structure of the church can be created or redesigned for mission in any context.

    Modern worship leaders are restless. They have inherited a model of leadership that equates leading worship with being a rock star. But leading worship is more than a performance, it's about shaping souls and making disciples. Every worship leader is really a pastor. The Worship Pastor is a practical and biblical introduction to this essential pastoral role. Filled with engaging, illustrative stories it is organized to address questions of theory and practice, striving to balance conversational accessibility with informed instruction. - Part One presents a series of evocative 'vignettes'--intriguing and descriptive titles and metaphors of who a Worship Pastor is and what he or she does. It shows the Worship Pastor as Church-Lover, Disciple Maker, Corporate Mystic, and Doxological Philosopher. - Part Two covers specific roles related to ministry within the worship service itself--the Worship Pastor as Theological Dietician, Caregiver, Mortician, Emotional Shepherd, War General, Prophetic Guardian, Missional Historian, and Liturgical Architect. - Part Three looks at ministry beyond the worship service--the Worship Pastor as Visionary Teacher, Evangelist, Artist Chaplain, and Team Leader. While some worship leaders are eager to embrace their pastoral role, many are lost and confused or lack the resources of time or money to figure out what this role looks like. Pastor Zac Hicks gives us a clear guide to leading worship, one that takes the pastoral call seriously. Accompanying figures are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

    Many pastors struggle to translate their theological beliefs into fruitful ministry in the places they are called to reach. It’s not enough to simply know what to believe (theology) or, on the other hand, how to do ministry (methodology)—they need something in between. They need help thinking about ministry in a culture that no longer believes Christianity is a force for good, let alone the source of ultimate revealed truth in the person of Christ.

    Who are unchurched Harry and Mary? He or she cold be the neighbor who is perfectly happy without God. Or the co-worker who scoffs at Christianity.

It's an action plan to help Christians relate the message of Christ to the people they work around, live with, and call their friends.
