As I first read the book I was impressed with the pastoral heart and the focus on the Gospel as the agent of transformation in our daily lives. We should never underestimate the power of the Gospel, but it happens nonetheless, even to pastors. This book brings that back clearly into focus and adds in some very practical ways to move Gospel knowledge to Gospel action and transformation.
This book is in a sense a road map for life coaching with the Gospel as the lens through which we view that process. While the book is fantastic, getting to one of the trainings will take it to a whole new level beyond that. While the intent of both the book and the training is for coaching others, it goes beyond that and had a great impact on pushing me to examine my own faith and how to better live a life that reflects the good news of Jesus Christ in all that I do. It pushes the user to make things actionable - it isn't enough to know you need to change, you have to take action.
I also appreciate that this book is more than just pious spirituality. It intends to change all areas and aspects of life. It has been helping me re-frame my need to get into better shape for instance.
If you are a pastor this is almost in the "must read" category in my opinion. If you lead other people it fits that same category as well. If you simply want to grow in your day-to-day living out your faith in Jesus Christ this is an exceptional tool as well.Read more ›
Thomas and Wood show why leaders need a coach and why they need a coach that is committed to living out the gospel and applying the gospel to the coaching relationship. They encourage a relationship that delves into the inner motivations of a leader. Leaders are encouraged to depend on and rest in the gospel, rather than performance. The goal of gospel coaching is helping leaders to be healthy shepherds of their people, as well as gospel-centered in their personal lives as well.
Thomas and Wood use many personal examples to show how gospel coaching works. The last part of the book actually looks at the process of gospel coaching and gives specific ideas for having gospel coaching sessions.
GOSPEL COACH is a great idea for church leaders. I'm not currently a church leader, but I have been, and having a gospel coach would have been a tremendous source of spiritual blessing and guidance for me. This is definitely a book to check out.
I received this book for free for review from Zondervan, and the opinions contained in this review are completely my own
Now, with so many young, talented men filling the rosters of NCAA and NFL Football teams, why is it that some excel and others do not? I'm convinced that the determining factor is coaching. A good coach makes all the difference. The right coach can turn a mediocre player into a force to be reckoned with. A mediocre coach can make the all-time best, worse. Yet, the player doomed for failure - regardless of of talent and drive - is the one who thinks he doesn't need a coach. He's the one who thinks he's going to change the future of the team and the game all on his own. It's the coach who needs to listen to him. What does all this have to do with a book on ministry coaches? Because most pastors are that player.Read more ›
