    I got one of the early copies (the "hairy knuckles" cover) as part of taking the Gospel Coaching course led by Scott Thomas. I've read through the book 3 times and completed the training and currently have my first group of people I'm leading through the coaching process.

    As I first read the book I was impressed with the pastoral heart and the focus on the Gospel as the agent of transformation in our daily lives. We should never underestimate the power of the Gospel, but it happens nonetheless, even to pastors. This book brings that back clearly into focus and adds in some very practical ways to move Gospel knowledge to Gospel action and transformation.

    This book is in a sense a road map for life coaching with the Gospel as the lens through which we view that process. While the book is fantastic, getting to one of the trainings will take it to a whole new level beyond that. While the intent of both the book and the training is for coaching others, it goes beyond that and had a great impact on pushing me to examine my own faith and how to better live a life that reflects the good news of Jesus Christ in all that I do. It pushes the user to make things actionable - it isn't enough to know you need to change, you have to take action.

    I also appreciate that this book is more than just pious spirituality. It intends to change all areas and aspects of life. It has been helping me re-frame my need to get into better shape for instance.

    If you are a pastor this is almost in the "must read" category in my opinion. If you lead other people it fits that same category as well. If you simply want to grow in your day-to-day living out your faith in Jesus Christ this is an exceptional tool as well.

    Coaching is a key tool in disciple making, equipping new leaders, and growing existing leaders/staff. This book is a great aid to those ends. It is infinitely practical and immediately applicable throughout the process. Not even a third of the way through the process with the first person I am coaching and we are starting to see some wonderful progress in their application of the Gospel to their life and growth.

    The book starts out making a compelling argument that every church leader needs a coach. It then spends a good chunk of pages on the Gospel and how sin effects the Church and its leaders. From there it moves into showing how Gospel transformation is different than performance-driven leadership. It pushes us as Christians to take the focus off of ourselves.

    Much of the rest of the book is focused on apply the Gospel to our lives (and/or the lives of those we are coaching) using the biblical shepherding analogy to great effect.
