Lead: 12 Gospel Principles for Leadership in the Church

Paul David Tripp

The church is experiencing a leadership crisis. For every celebrity pastor exiting in the spotlight, there are hundreds of lesser-known pastors leaving in the shadows. Why are so many pastors leaving the ministry? Best-selling author Paul David Tripp suggests that lurking behind the failure of a pastor is a weak leadership community.

Turning to Scripture for guidance, Tripp presents readers with twelve leadership-community principles necessary for a gospel-centered leadership model. Here is a book with a message for those new to ministry as well as those experienced in it—God's abiding presence is your hope in leadership.

“The strength of this book lies in the way Tripp shapes his treatment of leadership by two things: his understanding of the gospel, and his grasp of the organic nature of the local church. At one level, this is an easy read; at another level, it is sometimes probing and painful.”
D. A. Carson, Theologian-at-Large, The Gospel Coalition

The single most popular book in the world—the Bible—was written over many centuries by many different authors, each with a unique literary style. The many stories within its pages continue to grip the hearts of readers and introduce them to their Creator.

The Unfolding Grace Study Guide serves as an onramp to this unified story by helping readers grasp the central message of redemption that runs from Genesis through Revelation. Designed to be used in conjunction with Unfolding Grace, each lesson—with a short summary paragraph and reflection questions—promotes discussion, fosters spiritual growth, and enriches understanding of the Bible, making this ideal for small-group study, Sunday school class, or for individual use. Printed on thick paper and featuring a lay-flat binding optimized for note taking, the Unfolding Grace Study Guide is a great resource for anyone looking for an interactive exploration of the storyline of Scripture.

“With eye-catching illustrations, guided insight, and a helpful narrative structure, Unfolding Grace and the Unfolding Grace Study Guide act as gentle and wise companions to anyone who wants to read through Scripture with purpose and clarity. I highly recommend this beautiful resource.”
