Description of Mark Shaw, author of 10 Great Ideas from Church History:
In many churches, building vision means embracing the notions of the latest guru and jumping from one program to another. Ministry decisions are made according to the crisis of the moment or the pressures of the bottom line. Long-term planning can seem like an impossible dream. This book offers something different. Here are ideas that have stood the test of time--ideas from the most significant Christian leaders of the last five hundred years. Your church can implement key strategies from the lives and writiners of the reformers. And who make up the panel of expert consultants who will guide your vision for lasting change? The list includes Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley and others. Each of the ten great ideas found in this book provides a biblically based and historically rooted vision for your church over the long haul.
