There is a newer version than this shows, but this book is amazing. I found myself stunned that he was saying exactly what God had shown me for years... finally. I am reading it again.

This book served our church very well. I used this book along with one by John Maxwell as I led a group of Pastor's Prayer Partners in a large church.
