The Conviction to Lead – True Leadership Starts with a Purpose, Not a Plan

This chapter is about leadership in the church of Christ. The author’s emphasis is that wherever Christian leaders serve, their leadership should be driven by distinctively Christian convictions. Many leaders are good at change and organizational transformation, but they lack a centre of gravity in truth.

The Scriptures Testify about Me – Studying the Scriptures and Finding Jesus (John 5:31-47)

Chapter 1 is a consideration of the theme of preaching Jesus and the gospel from the Old Testament. The author develops his theme by reflecting on John 5:31-47. In this text the importance of Scripture as a witness to the mission of Jesus Christ is unfolded. John refers also to other witnesses: John the Baptist, Jesus’ own works, and the Father. The author continues with a defence of the Old Testament as part of the Christian canon.
