For the pastors of board-driven churches, this book is long overdue. There is a plethora of Christian leadership titles on the market, but they all are geared towards pastoral or individual roles. In this book, Malphurs focuses on the need for church board members to be well-trained as they lead congregations into the 21st century. With his rock-solid thought processes and meticulous attention to detail, the author presents a volume that is destined to be a God-send to many struggling churches. I've read many church health authors, and Malphurs is one of my favorites. I recommend this book highly.
