We Review Dangerous Calling

Posted by Anna Bunn  ·  Be the first to comment

For a start this book has a great cover, if you weren't sure what to expect then the warning tape should have been a give-away, plus flip the book over and the endorsements should start the alarm bells ringing but in a positive way.

'This book is "good" in the same way that heart surgery is good. It's painful and scary, and as you read it you'll be tempted to run away from the truth it contains. But it just might save your life…' Joshua Harris.

'This excellent volume should be read, re-read and applied.' Terry Virgo.

Paul David Tripp describes Dangerous Calling as a diagnostic book 'It is written to help you take an honest look at yourself in the heart-and life- exposing mirror of the Word of God'

Split into 3 parts, Tripp looks at the following 3 areas: Examining Pastoral Culture, The Danger of Losing Your Awe and The Danger of Arrival (Forgetting Who You Are). Tripp's style is honest, humble and doesn't beat about the bush. This book is for church leaders looking to realign themselves with God's purposes for their leadership. He highlights the pitfalls of leadership from turning studying Scripture into an academic exercise, through public personas and home life, to the risk of self-glory. Each chapter is, as Harris says, like taking a scalpel and digging around; gaining deep insight by getting straight to the heart of the matter. So if you're looking for a book to challenge you as a leader, then don't miss out on this dangerously powerful read.
