    I love Axiom and Transforming the church in rural America.

    Right now I’m reading Ben Arment’s Church in the Making and it’s really solid stuff.

    Out of that list I have read 4. I would say Axiom would be my top one out of the list. I few other books I have read regarding leadership are:

    1. The Way of the Shepherd by Kevin Leman & William Pentak
    2. Courageous Leadership by Bill Hybels

      The Way of the Shepherd belongs on this list. I’ve read it too, but missed it somehow.

    I’d add Andy Stanley’s 7 Practices for Effective Ministry and Winning on Purpose by John Edmund Kaiser (outstanding)… also, no Maxwell?

      You know, I just haven’t read any of Maxwell’s stuff. I’m not opposed to it, but just haven’t had the urge to pick one of his books up.

      Thanks for the suggestion!
