thJesus: A Theography by Leonard Sweet (2012)

Jesus: A Theography is the first book ever written to combine historical Jesus studies with biblical theology, crafting together one breathtaking saga that tells the Jesus story in both Old and New Testaments. This flagship book demonstrates clearly that every bit of Scripture is part of the same stunning drama, what the authors refer to as the theography of Jesus Christ. I’ve really enjoyed this work and recommend it to the person serious about knowing Jesus.

Army on its KneesArmy On Its Knees by Janet Munn and Stephen Court (2012)

This book is an answer to prayer. I believe God is saying to us in these pages, look no further for strategies to win the world for Jesus. The strategy is prayer. This work will become a touchstone in our movement and one that will advantage the seeker and the prayer group looking for direction towards the presence of God. Hallelujah!

High Counsel Cover copyHigh Counsel: Jesus and John on Leadership by Joe Noland and Stephen Court (2012)

Within months after taking office (October 1999), General John Gowans came to the The Salvation Army USA National Headquarters and, in his own inimitable way, presented a private and confidential (not to be disseminated or shared in any other form or forum) paper on leadership to members of the USA Commissioner s Conference. Commissioner Gisele Gowans has given permission to now share the contents of that paper in this forum. The authors do so, with commentary, in tribute to the iconic genius of John Gowans. Why? We want a Take-over Bid! A mammoth Take-over Bid! We ve been content for too long, Just jogging along each day. We’ll make a Take-over bid! It s really time that we did! (John Gowans’s lyrics from the premiere musical, Take Over Bid!
