Biblical Leadership: Ken Collier and Matt Williams co-authored this small paper back book.  Each of the authors have written specific chapters of the book as they lay the ground work for the Biblical teaching of servant leadership.  There is much time given in comparison to Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry and the modern day believer’s opportunities for leadership today.  Many cross references are quoted within the book for the reader’s convenience and each chapter ends with personal application questions.  The reader ends the book having been reminded of many vital Biblical truths needing to be applied to their own Biblical leadership.

Should Christians Drink?: This small 100 page paper back addresses the subject of Christians and alcohol.  The author, Peter Masters, presents the case for total abstinence.  He addresses things like: Didn’t Jesus turn water into wine?, Didn’t Paul tell Timothy to drink a little wine for his stomach sake?, and Does the New Testament show the practice of total abstinence?, and much more.   This area of social drinking or drinking with moderation has become a debated subject among the modern day church.  This book will aid you in your study of alcohol and the Christian as you search the scriptures.
