  • This is a simple yet challenging book that exposes surprising and challenging insights from 1 Corinthians chapters 1-4.The author, John Stott, is not afraid to point out the counter-cultural message found in these chapters: - that the church is ambiguously holy but not yet fully arrived- that the power of the gospel us through weakness- that we are reliant on the work of the Spirit from start to finish when dealing with Scripture- that leaders are given to the church and not vice versa- That lea [...]


  • Not what I expected in a leadership book, but I love this guys heart. John Stott does a good job of being simple in his explanation. He does a better job of walking through how to be lead in leadership

Pastors and lay ministers of various kinds will find this book helpful, as will anyone who is tryi [...]
