I was excited to see Church Unique listed in Leadership Journal's "Golden Canon." The article opening begins with a quote from Spurgeon: "A student will find that his mental constitution is more affected by one good book thoroughly mastered than by twenty books merely skimmed." Therefore Leadership Journal created a list "presenting the ten books of 2008 deemed most valuable." Here is the list:

The Leader's Outer World

The Reason for God, by Tim Keller (Winner)

Culture Making, by Andy Crouch

Axiom, by Bill Hybels

Consuming Jesus, by Paul Louis Metzger

Church Unique, by Will Mancini

The Leader's Inner World

Surprised by Hope, by N.T. Wright (Winner)

The Jesus Way, by Eugene Peterson

The Attentive Life, by Leighton Ford

Life with God, by Richard Foster

Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor, by D.A. Carson

Many thanks to Marshall Shelley and all the folks at Leadership Journal who continue to bring a strong kingdom resource to leaders. Their purpose is to serve church leaders by offering spiritual wisdom and practical tools for faithfully proclaiming and effectively living the gospel.
