Summary This book shows how an atmosphere of permission-giving, which signals the end of leaders as enablers, can help church leaders transcend bureaucracy and enhance spiritual gifts rather than assign them. The ‘sacred cows’ of control and regulation can be devoured, as leaders and people are converted to a new style of ministry.

||Originally published: New York : Doubleday, 2001.
||Doubleday edition had the subtitle: a spiritual journey through a country church.
||Lischer tells not only his own story but also the story of New Cana and its inhabitants. With charm, openness, and humor, Lischer brings to life the clash of cultures and personalities that marks his pastoral tenure, including his own doubts, as well as those of his parishioners, that a twenty-eight-year-old suburban-raised liberal can deal with the troubled marriages, alcoholism, teen sex, inadequate farm subsidies, and other concerns of the conservative, tightly knit community. But the inhabitants of New Cana–lovable, deeply flawed, imperfect people who stick together–open their arms to him in their own way, and the result is a colorful, poignant comedy of small-town life and all it has to offer.

And the Shofar Blew / Francine Rivers
Wheaton, Ill. : Tyndale House Publishers, c2003.
In the Old Testament, God called his people to action with the blast of the shofar, a ram’s horn. God still calls his people today. In this relevant and timely contemporary novel, young preacher Paul Hudson is committed to building his church—but at what cost? As Paul’s zeal and ambition build, he loses sight of the One who called him. As Paul and those around him struggle to discern what it truly means to live out their faith, they must ultimately choose between their own will or God’s plan.
