Lifelong Learning Mar 26, 2006
Hawkins' book places current thought on leadership within the context of a congregation or parish. He uses multiple references from scripture to illustrate the model of the Learning Congregation. Anyone in a leadership role would benefite from reading this book. Although not a quick read, Hawkins' style is not pedantic or overly scholarly. Many thought-provoking insights and ideas for personal and institutional growth.
