Spiritual Leadership

What every church will always need
The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church cannot be overemphasized. Such times demand active service of men and women who are guided by and devoted to Jesus Christ.
With more than 1 million copies sold, Spiritual Leadership stands as a proven classic for developing such leadership. J. Oswald Sanders, a Christian leader for nearly seventy years and author of more than forty books, presents the key principles of leadership in both the temporal and spiritual realms. He illustrates his points with examples from Scripture and biographies of eminent men of God, such as Moses, Nehemiah, the apostle Paul, David Livingstone, Charles Spurgeon, and others.
Featured topics include:
+ The cost of leadership
+ The responsibility of leadership
+ Tests of leadership
+ The qualities and criteria of leadership
+ The art of reproducing leaders

The one indispensable requirement of leadership
Sanders holds that even natural leadership qualities are God-given, and their true effectiveness can only be reached when they are used to the glory of God. Let this classic be your guide for leadership, and watch how God works through you to do great things for His glory.

Spiritual Discipleship

“Take time and trouble to keep yourself spiritually fit.” — 1 Tim. 4:7, J. B. Phillips Translation
As J. Oswald Sanders points out, true discipleship is more than intellectual assent to a belief in Christ; it involves the whole person and lifestyle.
True disciples pursue their Master. They know that God is watching over their faith, but they also take Scripture's command seriously: “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you.” They take pains, by His power, to look more and more like Jesus.
This book will help you to be such a disciple. It examines Jesus' teaching on what it means to follow Him, helping you become the kind of Christian Jesus wants you to be—not one devised by man or even other Christians. You'll learn:
+ The profile of an ideal disciple
+ Conditions for discipleship
+ The tests that disciples endure
+ How disciples pray and grow
+ The posture and practices of a disciple
+ And more
For anyone who wants to be not just a believer in Christ, but an imitator of Him, this book is a treasured resource.
Includes questions for reflection, ideal for both individual and group study.

Spiritual Maturity

How do Christians grow?
“This book invites the reader to experience the title. It is not just a 'how-to' volume, but a 'be' volume.” So write the editors of this rich resource on the spiritual life.
Spiritual maturity is not a level of growth Christians achieve, but the passion for pressing on in Christ. In these chapters, J. Oswald Sanders explores the primary source of continual growth. In three parts, structured around the persons of the Trinity, Sanders explores matters like:
+ How we should view God
+ Why our weakness is God's strength
+ What it means that Christ prays for us
+ How to live like an heir of the King
+ The role of the Spirit in a Christian's life
Spiritual Maturity provides clear direction for those desiring to grow strong spiritually. Complete with scriptural principles for spiritual development and study questions at the end of the text, this classic handbook is a timeless treasure.
Includes a "For Reflections" section, making it an ideal resource for both individual and group study.
