Power, Ministry, and Leadership

George B. Thompson, Jr.

 ISBN/Prod. Code: 0-8298-1671-2

 

What tools hold the greatest promise to assist pastors in leading congregations to be faithful witnesses for Jesus?  Alligators in the Swamp:  Power, Ministry, and Leadership, with a forward by Andrew Young, attempts to answer this question.  George Thompson will show you that the topic is power.  Not a pie-in-the-sky, by and by version of power, but a day to day, dead-serious, in-your-face version of power.  Alligators in the Swamp:  Power, Ministry, and Leadership aims its sights and enables you to explore the practice of power in human life.
