There are many different types of leaders--leaders in the business world, in government, in the home, and in the local church. Sadly, many times leadership has been completely contrary to what the Bible teaches. Many leaders are focused on what they can get from their positions of authority rather than on what they can give to the works in which they are involved. While some view it as a tool for popularity and power, leadership is a privilege. Leadership requires responsibility. We need biblical leaders who are people of integrity and humility--leaders who are willing to be different.

For many of us, the word 'power' conjures up disturbing feelings of control and dominance, of winning at all costs - and often at the expense of others. Indeed, from our earliest days this is how we have been taught to view the world in order to survive; it is at the heart of the story of man's evolution, and at the heart of much conflict and pain. But now, in Powerful Beyond Measure, Nick Williams reveals the basis of a different kind of power - a power that does not rely on winners or losers, but on a love that feeds our soul and a faith that frees us from the need to control. Here, as he draws upon fascinating case studies and timeless wisdom, Nick reveals how we can: ·Access the innate spiritual power that lies within each of us to find strength and inspiration every day of our lives ·Experience true connection with the world around us as we learn to trust ourselves and others ·Abandon our fears and doubts in order to discover the essence of who we truly are and all that we have to offer Complete with sound, practical advice and based on his experience as one of our most sought-after personal coaches, Nick Williams illuminates the path to a more rewarding life of hope, forgiveness and freedom - a life that is powerful beyond measure.

Perpetually Reforming: A Theology of Church Reform and Renewal

One of the slogans of the reformation was ecclesia reformata semper reformanda Â? 'the reformed church always reforming'. Churches throughout the western world are currently engaged in reform and renewal programmes through internal structural reforms as well as movements such as 'emerging church'. This book presents a challenging theology of church reform and renewal that offers a contemporary understanding of this historic slogan. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Bradbury discerns processes and practices which are perpetually reforming and renewing the identity of the church. It examines doctrinal and confessional conceptions of the church, re-examines texts concerned with covenantal renewal and explores Jewish-Christian dialogue as an example of renewal. A constructive theology is offered utilizing the categories of collective memory and mimetic practice. This upholds fundamental Christian identity, whilst driving the process of reform and renewal under God in the context of a three-way relationship between God, the church and the world.
