A ministry, like anything else built with love, determination, and grace, is only as good as the foundation upon which is is built. In order to build a solid and scripturally sound foundation for one's ministry, godly and effective tools are a must. The Robert P. Lightner and Aubrey Malphurs Collection (9 vols.) provides just such a set of tools. Both new and experienced pastors will benefit greatly from this complete yet concise, biblically sound set of books. How-to, when-to, why, and for-whom are all questions-answered as these fine authors address issues, challenges and topics continually faced by pastors, teachers, and all who minister His Word.
Everyone has questions, but you need to be ready with the answers. Whether the challenge you face is a family who have lost a young child and stand on the brink of losing much more through grief and pain, or a church which lacks focus and direction, the kind often provided by a profound mission statement around which to rally while serving the Lord, the answers are here in solid, proven, and accessible information.
Put the Robert P. Lightner and Aubrey Malphurs Collection (9 vols.) into your ministry-toolbox.
