Product Description

From the Back Cover

Ten days after the attacks on the World Trade Center Towers, I stood at Ground Zero and tried to take in the aftermath of one horrific day.

The thoughts of that made me cry out to God, No way! There’s just no way evil can be that deep and that dark!
But strangely, while the ashes smoldered around me, and the grief of it overwhelmed me, a profound hope rose in my heart--the local church is the hope of the world.

There were many people and organizations helping out after the disaster. But a work of a deeper kind was happening behind the scenes in downtown Manhattan. The most important work of all was being done by pastors and church members, volunteers of churches, ordinary Christ followers. They were in the middle of all the misery, addressing the concerns of the soul.

It was happening 24 hours a day. That was the untold media story. So many other organizations met the external needs of people, but it was the church that reached out to care for the inner needs of their fellow human beings. The church became the physicians for the souls of people. That experience underscored, yet again, the convictions that have been forming in Bill Hybels for the past 30 years--that the church has an unique mission to fulfill on planet Earth. And that the future of our society depends on whether or not church leaders understand that and focus the vision of local churches accordingly.

Where Bill’s heart beats the fastest is with leaders in local churches. He believes to the core of his being that local church leaders have the potential to be the most influential force in the world. If they "get it," churches will be the redemption centers for change that Jesus imagined them being.

So that’s Bill’s hope--that the spiritual gift of leadership will come alive in churches everywhere and, as a result, the church will become the force in the world against which the gates of hell cannot prevail. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This book was just what I had been looking for.

As a Christian and a consultant, I had been looking for ways to help my own church and struggling with a concern about the applicability of management tools to developing a church. Bill Hybels demonstrates that the Church can benefit from the sensitive use of such disciplines in order to organise itself effectively and grow. Well worth reading if you want to see your church thrive.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely loved this book. I'm not in any sort of leadership but it really inspired me about the Acts concept of church, and how we can bring it back! I read about 1/4 of it on the train without stopping and came away buzzing. It's the sort of book that makes me want to get up in the mornings.

Recommended for any Christian who is in leadership (whether of a church or not) or anyone who has a vision to revolutionise church.

Format: Paperback
Full of practical advice taken from his years at Willow Creek I commend this book to all involved in Christian Leadership. Although primarlily pointed towards those leaders who have the senior role in a church there is plenty here for all involved in leadership at whatever level. A must buy! A must read!

I bought this book because of leadership values we are looking at in my local church. Willow Creek is a very large congregation in US and Biil Hybels a renowned pastor/author. The book does not disappoint. Although Willow Creek has huge numbers; the ideas on leadship/stewardship can easily be adapted to smaller churches; its all about stretching and growing each individual as well as corporately.

A really good read by all standards - very informative and relevant to the subject. Just wondering now, how come I am only chancing on it now. Good stuff. I also recommend one titled “Doing Business with God” – here’s a link:

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book pushed all the right buttons for me, straight talking as only an American can do. I liked it so much I bought 6 copies and gave them to various people for their response.
However once the euphoria has died away you realise that this was written by the leader of one of the largest churches in the western world who can pick and choose his team members from far and wide. The reality of most of us is that we have to work with our existing resources. However if you look beyond this issue and take Hybels' view that "the local church is the hope of the world" then you can glean quite a lot from this book on the principles of the gift of leadership. One comment I have received from a senior churchman is that it is a secular management book with a bit of Christianity bolted on to it - probably a fair comment but it certainly helps churches to be shaken out of their complacency.
