The Leadership Files
Unique collection of wise writing: taken from the ‘best-of-the best’. Includes appendix on good governance. Questions for reflection. Could be used in a workplace fellowship or home group.
Foreword by Joni Eareckson Tada
This is an unusual book, gathering wisdom from around the world, across a century. The content, curated for its quality, will stretch the minds of younger leaders to see what they could be and do. It will help them to think in new categories. The material is profound, but all lucidly expressed. As accessible to an undergraduate student as to a pastor or business leader.
The Appendix on good governance is timely, as we hear stories of neglectful governance. The boards have neglected their charge to protect the ministry, and to enable it to flourish. We trust this will show board members and CEOs / senior staff what good practice looks like, and what it will achieve.
This Appendix is unique, to our knowledge. It also appears, expanded, in a free-standing booklet. The Art of Good Governance: 7 rules for stability and growth. (Dictum / Premier)
Take Care of Yourselves
The only book of its kind written by a psychiatrist. It will be of value for all in ministry for the long haul.
A critical book for anyone in ministry who wants to run the race well, and keep running to the end. Pablo Martinez has helped many people in ministry. For church leaders, church apprentices, student workers, staff of mission agencies. Questions included for personal reflection or for group discussion.
From the Foreword: ‘This book is a gem. It could be a lifesaver for someone in Christian ministry. I trust it will bring a welcome restoration for any who have lost their joy in the heat of the battle, or simply become worn down.’ - Lindsay Brown, General Secretary IFES 1991-2007; International Director, Lausanne Movement 2008-2016.
