Men of Destiny by Peter Masters

What do a Russian Tsar, a famous doctor, a notorious counterfeiter, a drunken fiddler, and a military general all have in common? Sound like the beginning of a bad joke? Well, it is actually the theme of a book I was given for Christmas by a friend. Men of Destiny by Peter Masters looks at […]

The Book on Leadership by John MacArthur

“It is a serious mistake for Christians in positions of leadership to be more concerned with what is currently popular in the corporate world than with what our Lord taught about leadership.” This is one of many great quotes from John MacArthur’s book The Book on Leadership: The Power of Godly Influence.

The Apostle, the Life of Paul by John Pollock

Book Review: From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya

I am almost ashamed to admit that I just finished reading From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya for the first time.  I feel like I should have read this book a decade ago!  But, at any rate, I am glad I have finally read it. The book is a biographical history of Christian missions.  It tells the […]

Book Review: Building Your Leadership Resume

Book Review: I Saw the Welsh Revival
