Just released by Brazio (Baker Books). I can't wait to use this book with a small group on Wednesdays at my church. I'm thinking it will be a perfect book for a small group study or book club sponsored by church libraries. Some of you have pastors and staff who discount the value of fiction for making disciples. Here's a book that is highly recommended to pastors and staff as well as the rest of us.

Donna Duncan from First Baptist Church of Arkadelphia recently joined the CLN. She shared their need to develop a vision statement that will help them serve their 21st Century church. One of our realizations in recent years has been the importance of our church libraries connecting in strategic ways to the vision statements of our churches. Let’s start a discussion on how our library teams have done that. Would you share how you did that and how you use this vision of where your…Continue

And you will see that Diane based the story on the life of our Dad,…Continue

This new tool arranges the twenty-seven books of the New Testament in to four sections--the books relating to Peter and his evangelistic team; those relating to James and his companions; the…Continue
