some books i’m reading

I’m finding time to squeeze in some reading these days – on one of my favorite topics. The 3 I am working my way through currently are:

Reviewing Leadership by Robert Banks and Bernice M. Ledbetter.

Spiritual Leadership by J. Oswald Sanders

Being Leaders by Aubrey Malphurs

I don’t usually read three books at a time and certainly not on one topic. I find it difficult enough to remember stuff when I have only a singular source. But I am working on some projects that are calling for some expertise from a variety of sources.  And it’s going really well.

Banks and Ledbetter have some very useful assessments for leaders of leaders. I plan to utilize some of these for myself as well as with staff and leaders at Cross Community Church.

Malphurs does a beautiful job of creating some important distinctions regarding leadership styles and approaches. He encourages a lot of self-development which I think it good.

Sanders is a book that some leaders of our church are reading together. We are only doing 3 chapters a month so it will take a while. This is a re-read for me. It is a classic and I recommend for anyone in leadership on any level.

So tell me: what are you reading?
