Experienced pastor and seminary teacher R. Robert Creech helps pastoral leaders increase their effectiveness by applying family systems theory to congregational life and ministry. Creech introduces readers to the basic concepts of Bowen Family Systems Theory, applies family theory to the work of ministry in church settings, and connects systems thinking to the everyday aspects of congregational ministry, such as preaching, pastoral care, leadership, spiritual formation, and interpreting biblical texts. Each chapter contains discussion questions, and there are five helpful appendixes with supplemental information about Bowen theory.

    Famous Stutterers

    $21.00
    Moses, Aristotle, Civil War hero Joshua Chamberlain, King George VI, Winston Churchill, Marilyn Monroe, distinguished historian Peter Brown, TV journalist John Stossel, Senator's wife Annie Glenn, ABC correspondent Byron Pitts, novelist John Updike. For all of these accomplished persons, stuttering was an enormous difficulty. None had a sure-fire remedy. Most had to blunder and stumble through. The persistence and courage they displayed tells us that there might be ways we too can survive and achieve--despite our own difficulties. ""Gerald McDermott's Famous Stutterers is a noble read. It not only tells the stories of twelve lives across religious, political, literary, and public media spheres who have changed the world, it also inspires us to a life of courage and determination no matter what obstacles we face. Soon in these pages we begin to see how even the impediment of stuttering can become the impetus for greatness."" --Mark Graham, Senior Pastor, St. John Lutheran Church (NALC), Roanoke, Virginia ""Gerald McDermott's book featuring twelve individuals who live (or lived) with stuttering is scholarly, interesting, and very well researched. The twelve include historical and current men and women with some surprises that they lived with stuttering. The author provides insight not only into the character of these individuals but also into the role stuttering played in shaping their lives, careers, and personal development. A page-turner for this reader."" --Judith Kuster, Professor Emeritus, Minnesota State University, Mankato ""This book is an interesting compilation of past and current famous people who stutter. Filled with historical facts, it shows the depth of difficulties people with this speech disorder may experience, and surprising positive growth and accomplishments in these individuals as a result of dealing with this life-long struggle. One can be greatly shaped by stuttering or use it to shape oneself for great things."" --Janet Thompson, Speech Pathologist Gerald R. McDermott is Anglican Chair of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School. He is the author or editor of seventeen books. He is also a stutterer.

    In his years as a professional figure skater, Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton learned to embrace the mind-set of working hard to beat the competition. In doing so, he found the strength to rise above every challenge life has thrown his way. But it seems competing to win has gotten a bad rap these days. We've bought into the belief that failure must be avoided at all costs and it's unfair to participants to rank their performances.

    Scott has lived a life filled with victories. But he wasn't born a winner. Neither were you. Some labels just have to be earned. In Finish First Scott explains

  • how to understand your unique purpose,
  • why you aren't a winner--yet,
  • how to break the pattern of losing,
  • why you should ditch fear and celebrate failure, and
  • the importance of editing your critics.
  • You'll be amazed at how simple and logical it is to be better than you've ever been. Awaken your greatest potential and embrace the fact that you were born for something special.

    We need to relearn that competition is a good thing because it drives us to live to the fullest and strive to be better than we ever thought possible. To finish first is something we all dream about. It's time to begin achieving those dreams.

    "If your enemies are starving, feed them some bread; if they are thirsty, give them water to drink." Proverbs 24:17 (CEB)

    There is nothing more crippling than holding on to anger. Anger, more than any other emotion, has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God.

    In the passionate and life-changing book Forgiveness: Finding Peace Though Letting Go, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings the same insight that he applied in the bestseller "Why?" to the challenge of forgiveness. Hamilton argues that revelation comes when we realize that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves rather than to someone else. He also contends that only when we learn to forgive others and ourselves can we truly receive forgiveness from God.

    "Adam Hamilton not only reminds us about the importance of reconnecting the broken pieces of our lives, but shows how the process of grace and forgiveness is possibly our most complete picture of God."
    --Shane Stanford, author of Making Life Matter: Embracing the Joy in the Everyday

    "The heartbeat of the gospel is grace. With practical insight, Hamilton makes grace understandable--both for seeking and for granting forgiveness. I highly recommend this book."
    --Melody Carlson, author of Healing Waters: A Bible Study on Forgiveness, Grace, and Second Chances

    "Adam Hamilton's book offers clear guidance for believers struggling with the practical application of our biblical imperative to forgive. It is a must-read for both Christian counselors and every person who has something or someone to forgive."
    --Jennifer Cisney Ellers, author of The First 48 Hours: Spiritual Caregivers as First Responders

    "Deeply rooted in the Bible's testimony about God's extravagant mercy, this fine little book explores the Christian call to practice both repentance and forgiveness in the image of God. Straightforward and practical, Hamilton vividly sketches the habits of the heart that discipleship requires in our daily relationships with spouses and intimate life partners, family members, friends and strangers."
    --Patricia Beattie Jung, Professor of Christian Ethics, Saint Paul School of Theology

    Forgiveness tends to be an obscure principle in today's world-even among those who follow Christ. We all know the familiar saying, "time heals all wounds," and yet we watch those around us shrivel from the pain of distant wounds that still seem to bleed fresh, raw, and unhealed. Forgiving Forward is an engaging, authentic dialogue teeming with real life stories and transformative Biblical teaching that has the power to heal and restore that which has been broken. In Forgiving Forward, Bruce and Toni, give us the opportunity to learn Heaven's Protocols of Forgiveness and how to accurately apply them both for ourselves and for others. The tools this book teaches will restore marriages, reunite families and unify churches.

    From Therapist to Coach How to Leverage Your Clinical Expertise to Build a Thriving Coaching Practice

    $40.00
    Praise for From Therapist to Coach

    "This book is very practical and helpful to the therapist who wants to make a change and feels a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities. The section on choosing a niche was illuminating and very exciting to me. I found it helpful to have the training options outlined so clearly, and the marketing section was extremely useful as well."
    --Shelley R. Cohen, LCSW, Beverly Hills, CA

    "This book has sparked a renewed passion for my work as I have struggled the past couple of years with how to incorporate coaching into my psychotherapy practice. I knew there must be a way to do it but lacked the 'how to.' Based on his years of experience and real insight, David Steele supplies the necessary tools to do so effectively as well as invaluable strategies to help avoid the pitfalls. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this as a book that you will return to time and time again as a handbook for your private practice as a therapist/coach."
    --Sharon O'Farrell, MIHA, Navan, Ireland
