Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level?

Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles such as these: Unforeseen setbacks Unrelenting deadlines Criticism and outside resistance Personality conflicts Financial pressures and temptations The insights that Swindoll draws from Nehemiah's wise administration will change your approach to leadership forever.

In a world where everything is constantly moving forward, we often take a long, hard look in the mirror, see the same old sinner that should have been left behind long ago, and wonder if we’ve done enough to merit God’s approval. The Creator never intended us to be burdened by constant guilt, shame, and fear. In A Life Well Lived, Charles Swindoll provides a poignant and inspirational message from the book of Micah that frees Christians from unscriptural notions of failure and shows them the rewards of an obedient heart. Rather than focusing on the “Checklist Christianity” that misses God’s message of redemption, Swindoll encourages us to embrace the fullness of our Creator’s love. Leave the shackles of second-guessing forever behind and embrace God’s grace with A Life Well Lived. “What honors the Lord is a heart that beats in the same rhythm as His, a spirit that values the same qualities that define Him. He wants people who do what is right, who love kindness, and who walk humbly with Him. Do as he says, and you will not only honor the Lord you love, you will live life well.”

The subject of leadership is not new to mankind, having been practised in one form or another over the centuries. Students of administration and leadership can frequently find various definitions and concepts of this subject. Although descriptions, titles and labels may be popularized or even canonized, the primary qualification — and responsibility — of leadership will always be seeking knowledge about any given situation. From Wine-Taster To Wall-Builder seeks to give practical examples and lessons taken from actual leadership situations. This is done by examining the performance of leaders when faced with colossal tasks and volatile situations, while also employing very basic principals of effective leadership.

How much of the awesomely abundant life that Christ died to provide for believers do you want—a little bit, a lot, or all of it? If your answer is "all of it," then Victory Every Day in Every Way was specifically written for you! This book will guide you on a journey from the outhouse to the penthouse or from wherever you are in life to where God wants you to be. God wants all believers to be victorious in everything we do, wherever we go, and for however long we stay. This book explores the foolproof plan for kingdom living that God revealed to Nehemiah the governor. The plan is centered around the very difficult task of building a wall of protection around Jerusalem for the establishment of an uninterrupted victorious lifestyle for his people. This plan worked for Nehemiah and the Jews. It will therefore work for you! For God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

God Saved Me is written to encourage believers to be aware of their position in Christ and be willing to prepare their minds and hearts for the challenges ahead. Then, believers should be available to participate in sharing the good news whenever and with whomever God gives the opportunity. God Saved Me addresses critical concerns for outreach and witnessing, focusing on the local church’s responsibility; the importance of prayer in witnessing; reliance on the Word of God; dealing with fear and guilt; being approved as a person of faith; making Christ the topic; and development of a personal testimony that can be shared repeatedly. This book speaks directly to the need for believers to come together in support of one another and make a commitment to follow Christ’s directive to make disciples wherever an opportunity is presented. Using anecdotal comments and personal accounts of outreach, God Saved Me provides fresh insight to help believers respond to the need for people of faith to get in the fight for the souls of their families, friends, and loved ones. “Rev. Wylie Comp has written one of the most comprehensive books on the subject of Christian witnessing that I have ever had the privilege of reading or reviewing. God Saved Me is written on a level that anyone can understand and use as a guide for becoming an effective Christian soldier in the army of God.” –Dr. Gerald F.
