Confessions of an Insignificant Pastor:What Pastors Wish They Could Tell You!
A MUST READ!!!
"Risky business is writing a book like this one! If you think a prophet speaking truth to power is high-risk, listen here to a prophet who, by telling the truth to a church in power-failure, speaks power to truth. I loved this book!"
Dr. Leonard Sweet, Drew University, George Fox University, http://www.Sermons.com
