Leaders Who Last – An Interview with Dave Kraft and Mark Drisoll

“Only 30% of leaders finish well,” author Dave Kraft reports. “My best investment would be to spend a lot of time and energy investing in younger leaders so they will finish well.”

Leaders Who Last from Crossway’s RE:LIT series is not a book of ideas or theories that leaders should try, but is written from a wealth of experience packed full of practical application that has been effective in Kraft’s life and ministry.

Mark Driscoll interviews Dave Kraft at the Resurgence.

A Sincere and Pure Devotion to Christ

Adrian Warnock and Sam Storms recenlty discussed Storms’ new title, A Sincere and Pure Devotion to Christ: 100 Daily Meditations on 2 Corinthians. Storms says, “If I were to teach a class on pastoral ministry I think I’d just work verse by verse through 2 Corinthians.” Or perhaps you aren’t teaching a class and you’re not going to be a pastor. “So many Christians struggle with knowing where to start reading their Bible,” Storms explains. “With these 100 meditations, you can read them in 10 minutes. It goes verse by verse . . . it gets readers in the text and is time manageable.”

“Your marriage may be good. It may even be great. You may have grown together in appreciation, respect, unity, understanding, and love. You may have learned where problems typically exist for you as a couple, and you may have learned how to solve them together. You may have identified places where you and your marriage need to mature. You may have created a lifestyle of honest communication and efficient problem solving. You may have forged a solid and enjoyable friendship between you. You may be able to look back and be thankful because you recognize what you once were compared to what you are now.

But there is one thing that you need to accept: your marriage may be great, but it is not safe. No marriage this side of eternity is totally problem protected. No marriage is all that it could be. This side of heaven daily temptations are constant threats to you and your marriage. This side of heaven the spiritual war goes on. This side of heaven good marriages are good marriages because the people in those marriages are committed to doing daily the things that keep their marriages good. Things go wrong when couples think they have reached the point when they can retire from their marital work and chill out, lay back, and slide. Perhaps the greatest danger to a good marriage is a good marriage, because when things are good, we are tempted to give way to feelings of arrival and forsake the attitudes and disciplines that have, by God’s grace, made our marriage what it has become.” (pp 237–238).

Jonathan Leeman on The Church and the Suprising Offense of God’s Love

Is church discipline biblical? Jonathan Leeman wrote The Church and the Surprising Offense of God’s Love to help Christians start taking their membership in their local church seriously . . . because the very nature of God’s love gives shape to this body of people. And he means for his love to be displayed to the nations through this committed, marked off, body of people.

Learn more about the cover and why perhaps you should consider reading the book here in his recent interview with Jim Hamilton.
