Item description for Pastoral Leadership for Manhood and Womanhood (Foundations of the Family) by Wayne Grudem, Dennis Rainey & R. Kent Hughes...
Overview The conviction of the editors of this Foundations for the Family Series volume is that family ministry in your congregation begins with your own family. Wayne Gruden and Dennis Rainey gathered a group of prominent Christian leaders to provide wisdom for people who want to see the Gospel flourish in their church families. Their essays touch on building strong marriages, confronting domestic violence, reaching out to singles, and more.
As the shepherd of the flock, a pastor has many responsibilities-few as great as leading and training families. The pervasive attitude and beliefs of the world have only added stress and confusion to this task. Sixteen highly regarded men and women help bring clarity and guidance to this important issue. They tackle practical topics such as how and why to preach on biblical manhood and womanhood, putting the Internet to use, church discipline, small groups, and handling domestic violence. They discuss the personal applications within the pastor's marriage, and they examine the biblical views of ministering to singles, homosexuality, leadership and submission, and much more. This compilation is thorough, potent, and a must-have for any pastor's library.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pastoral Leadership for Manhood and Womanhood (Foundations of the Family)?
Excellent practical help for busy pastors Mar 23, 2004
I cannot imagine a more relavant book for busy pastors than this. There is condensed wisdom to be found here from those who have obviously wrestled with the many issues that face us these days. The editors asume that faithfulness to scripture regarding manhood and womanhood is itself 'leadership'. For this approach many will be grateful. A variety of experienced contributors provide more tham discussion. They lead us to practical help in every area tackled. Many under sheperds will receive much guidance contained in these pages. This and the companion volume 'Biblical Foundations for Manhood and Womanhood' are both essential reading for church leaders today.
