Over the last several weeks, I have read several books that illustrates the power of discipleship and disciple-making. I would highly recommend any of these books. They would make a great gift for that someone special. Better yet, purchase any of the following books, read the book, sign you name in the front of the book and the date you completed the book then pass it on to someone else to read. Ask them to sign under your name and pass the book on to the next person.
Lead…for God’s Sake! by Todd G. Gongwer is a parable for finding the heart of leadership. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. In fact, I am leading the EKU Football Coaches through this book at the moment. Thanks Coach Hood for recommending this book to me.

The Traveler’s Gift: Seven Decisions That Determines Personal Success by Andy Andrews is a great book. Again, another book that will open your eyes to the value of discipleship from a distance and from up close. You will not be disappointed in this book.

The Last Great Game: Duke vs. Kentucky And The 2.1 Seconds That Changed Basketball by Gene Wojiechowski is a book that I read because I love Kentucky Basketball. None the less there is some discipling taking place with Pitino and his coaching staff. Great book if you are a UK Fan.
